Der Einsatz

Motto of Plato's Academy: 'Let no one ignorant of geometry enter'

The Ninefold Square (a 3x3 grid)

The New York Times Magazine
on Sunday, Sept. 20, 2009:

From this journal on the following day, Sept. 21:

Pearl Jam 'Backspacer' album released Sept. 20, 2009

Happy birthday, Stephen King.

Today's previous entry is based on a song, "Unthought Known,"
from the above album; the cover of the album uses the 3×3 grid
shown in Sept. 20's midnight review. For related material
on the unconscious, see June 13-15, 2005.

I know more than Apollo,
For oft when he lies sleeping
I see the stars at mortal wars
In the wounded welkin weeping.

Tom O'Bedlam's Song

  1. I would like to propose an alternative to the rather unfriendly
    “μηδείς αγεωμέτρητος εισίτω”, namely
    “κάθε ένας γεωμέτρητος εισίτω”. It is a logical equivalent to the original phrase, but it is rather inclusive than exclusive.

    See http://www.xs4all.nl/~jemebius/4drot.htm for a pointer to information from the University of Cyprus on Plato and his Academy.
