A little detour today. Geometers sometimes have different views of things.
Followers of R. Buckminster Fuller commonly subscribe to his view of the universe summarized in his seminal work, "Synergetics."
One of the principal notions at the core of Synergetics is the space-filling shape Bucky terms a "MITE."
Here Frank Zubek (my bias: I like Frank's ideas) disputes the claims of MITE supporters, and proposes an alternate view of space filling. There is an on-going dispute between Frank Zubek and Kirby Urner, two very knowledgeable geometers. Kirby is a proponent of Fuller's views, Frank offers an alternate view. Forgive me for finding this dispute somewhat amusing. Note how Frank says "Hi Kirby." Oooohh, careful Frank.
As an observer, it's been very interesting for me to watch this geometrical dispute. Like Clash of the Titans, only more instructive and less bloody (so far).
Here are some videos from Frank Zubek:
Now just calm down everyone, we'll get to the bottom of this. Maybe we mite.
