Logos Alogos  by S. H. Cullinane

“To a mathematician, mathematical entities have their own existence,
they habitate spaces created by their intention.  They do things,
things happen to them, they relate to one another.  We can imagine
on their behalf all sorts of stories, providing they don’t contradict
what we know of them.  The drama of the diagonal, of the square…

to be given this July at the Mykonos conference on mathematics and
narrative. For the drama of the diagonal of the square, see
