The Sun and the Moon and Euler’s Identity

December 12th, 2015 Comments Off on The Sun and the Moon and Euler’s Identity


Here’s a photograph of a solar eclypse.









And here’s a conventional typographic representation of Euler’s Identity








And here is a video about Euler’s Identity.


I have a serious suspicion that Euler’s Identity is somehow related to the totally weird anomaly of the sun and moon’s discs being unreasonably close to the same size as viewed from earth. Incidentally, or again, perhaps coincidentally, all of this resonates with the idea of the lotus arising out of the chaotic mud and achieving perfection, seeds of its own renewal at the ready.

So, from the infinite chaos of mathematics we converge upon Euler’s Identity. From the infinite chaos of space-time we converge upon the sun/moon coincidence.

Or are we emerging from Euler’s identity and the Sun/Moon coincidence into the chaos of mathematics as space/time as mathematics?

Perhaps they are one and the same thing.
