Curtis at Pilsen, Thursday, July 5, 2018

Filed under: General — Tags: , — m759 @ 11:48 AM

For an account by R. T. Curtis of how he discovered the Miracle Octad Generator,
see slides by Curtis, “Graphs and Groups,” from his talk on July 5, 2018, at the
Pilsen conference on algebraic graph theory, “Symmetry vs. Regularity: The first
50 years since Weisfeiler-Leman stabilization” (WL2018).

See also “Notes to Robert Curtis’s presentation at WL2018,” by R. T. Curtis.

Meanwhile, here  on July 5, 2018

Simultaneous perspective does not look upon language as a path because it is not the search for meaning that orients it. Poetry does not attempt to discover what there is at the end of the road; it conceives of the text as a series of transparent strata within which the various parts—the different verbal and semantic currents—produce momentary configurations as they intertwine or break apart, as they reflect each other or efface each other. Poetry contemplates itself, fuses with itself, and obliterates itself in the crystallizations of language. Apparitions, metamorphoses, volatilizations, precipitations of presences. These configurations are crystallized time: although they are perpetually in motion, they always point to the same hour—the hour of change. Each one of them contains all the others, each one is inside the others: change is only the oft-repeated and ever-different metaphor of identity.

“At that instant he saw, in one blaze of light, an image of unutterable
conviction, the reason why the artist works and lives and has his being –
the reward he seeks –the only reward he really cares about, without which
there is nothing. It is to snare the spirits of mankind in nets of magic,
to make his life prevail through his creation, to wreak the vision of his life,
the rude and painful substance of his own experience, into the congruence
of blazing and enchanted images that are themselves the core of life, the
essential pattern whence all other things proceed, the kernel of eternity.”

— Thomas Wolfe, Of Time and the River

“… the stabiliser of an octad preserves the affine space structure on its
complement, and (from the construction) induces AGL(4,2) on it.
(It induces A8 on the octad, the kernel of this action being the translation

are made visible by the spectral illumination of moonshine.”

Related remarks by John Archibald Wheeler —

“Remarkable issues connected with the puzzle of existence
confront us today in Hermann Weyl’s domain of thought.
Four among them I bring before you here as especially interesting:
(1) What is the machinery of existence?
(2) What is deeper foundation of the quantum principle?
(3) What is the proper position to take about the existence of
the “continuum” of the natural numbers? And
(4) What can we do to understand time as an entity, not precise and
supplied free of charge from outside physics, but approximate and
yet to be derived from within a new and deeper time-free physics?
In brief, how come time?
What about the continuum?
How come the quantum?
What is existence?”

From Atomicity and Quanta  by James Jeans,
Cambridge University Press, 1926, pp. 55-56 —

“So far as we can at present conjecture, the investigation of the structure which produces this atomicity appears to be the big problem in the path of the quantum-theory. To conform to the principle of relativity, the new atomicity must admit of expression in terms of the space-time continuum, although we have seen that it cannot be an atomicity of the continuum itself. It may conceivably be an atomicity of its metric properties, such as determine its curvatures. We may perhaps form a very rude picture of it by imagining the curvature of the continuum in the neighbourhood of an atom not to be of the continuous nature imagined by Weyl, but to occur in finite chunks—a straight piece, then a sudden bend, then another straight bit, and so on. A small bit of the continuum viewed through a five-dimensional microscope might look rather like a cubist picture; and, conversely, perhaps a cubist picture looks rather more like a little fragment of the continuum than like anything else.”

This is, of course, not the “atomicity” of  the previous post.
For examples of that  atomicity, a concept of pure geometry
rather than of physics, see

Faure, C. A., and Frölicher, A., “Fundamental Notions of
Lattice Theory,” in Modern Projective Geometry  (2000).

” This happened at a conference somewhere in North America. I was chairing the session at which he was to speak. When I got up to introduce him, his title had not yet been announced, and the stage had a blackboard on an easel. I said something like ‘The next speaker is John Conway, and no doubt he is going to tell us what he will talk about.’ John came onto the stage, went over to the easel, picked up the blackboard, and turned it over. On the other side were revealed five titles of talks. He said, ‘I am going to give one of these talks. I will count down to zero; you are to shout as loudly as you can the number of the talk you want to hear, and the chairman will judge which number is most popular.’ “
