The "Pyramid Dance" from this journal
on Dec. 3, 2014, the date of death for
mathematics author James Stewart —


When Stewart died on Dec. 3, it ended a two-year ordeal that began when doctors discovered multiple myeloma, cancer of the bone marrow, while he was being treated for a broken hip.

As the end neared, the meticulously well organized Stewart came to conclude that he would prefer his wake take place before he died. So he set out to organize an extraordinary salon for the people he loved, in the building he loved, featuring music he loved.

There was a giant buffet and among the performers was Canadian soprano Measha Brueggergosman using a concert hall that was part of his sprawling 18,000 square foot architectural masterpiece he called Integral House in Toronto's Rosedale.

"It was pretty epic. Everyone lined up to talk to him. They'd come up to him and lean down in front of him as he sat," said Joe Clement, a documentary filmmaker who had been filming Stewart for the past three years. The film Integral Man is scheduled for release in early 2016.

"I said to myself, 'This is it and this is everything.' It was very powerful."

Pyramid Dance

Filed under: General,Geometry — Tags: , — m759 @ 10:00 AM

Oslo artist Josefine Lyche has a new Instagram post,
this time on pyramids (the monumental kind).

My response —

Wikipedia's definition of a tetrahedron as a
"triangle-based pyramid"

and remarks from a Log24 post of August 14, 2013 :

Norway dance (as interpreted by an American)

IMAGE- 'The geometry of the dance' is that of a tetrahedron, according to Peter Pesic

I prefer a different, Norwegian, interpretation of "the dance of four."
