Broken Symmetries

A quotation from Lefebvre:

"… an epoch-making event so generally ignored
that we have to be reminded of it at every moment.
The fact is that around 1910 a certain space was shattered…
the space… of classical perspective and geometry…."

— Page 25 of The Production of Space 
    (Blackwell Publishing, 1991)

This suggests, for those who prefer Harvard's past glories
to its current state, a different Raum  from the Zeit  1910.

In January 1910 Annals of Mathematics , then edited at Harvard,
published George M. Conwell's "The 3-space PG (3, 2) and Its Group."
This paper, while perhaps neither epoch-making nor shattering, has
a certain beauty. For some background, see this journal on February 24, 2009.
