## A whole new level of crazy

Ok, so, I’ve been quiet lately.  Once the semester ends, I’ll probabyl start posting a bit more again (I’ll have a new laptop in a week and ahalf, which will help) and I’m going to talk about theta functions, theta divisors, the Torelli theorem and the Schottky problem, passing through some cool stuff with Prym maps first.  In fact, on the topic of Schottky, a good paper I just found, but which isn’t new, is this one by Krichever proving the Trisecant Conjecture, and also this new paper of Gulbrandsen and Lahoz, where they extend a characterization by Pareschi and Popa to finite length subschemes of abelian varieties, a very nice paper.

And, as the title said, I’ve come across a new kind of crazy entirely.  I’ve stared into the face of time cube and survived, but this…this is impressive.  Pure Math Theory is…you have to see it to believe it.  Don’t look if you’ve had your fill of cranks, though!

Charles Siegel is currently a postdoc at Kavli IPMU in Japan. He works on the geometry of the moduli space of curves.

1. When you gaze into the Void, the Void also gazes back into you.

2. Then when we apply the Riemann Hypothesis of reducing to a single integer by addition 27 = 9, nine being our integer representing an infinite process, 9 is also a transformation integer and our integer for anti-gravitation. 3 applications as 3 squared = 9.

Craziness at this level actually makes me feel quite uncomfortable. I mean, I gaze at in it in enjoyable bewilderment for a little bit, but then I start feeling like the fashionable ladies in this picture.

I must admit I got a good laugh out of “the square root of 2 is *not* irrational”. Wished he had given us the rational number, though!

4. Dario Prandi says:

Well, at least he gives the rational number for Pi…

This is really amazing. Last time I had this much fun was reading about the nullity guy. Fortunately, that wasn’t this scary.
