Braving the Elements

Filed under: General — m759 @ 1:46 PM

The title is that of a book of poems by James Merrill
that includes “The Emerald.”

“As above, so below.” —  The Emerald Tablet

“The Emerald Tablet … is a compact and cryptic piece of
the Hermetica   reputed to contain the secret of the prima materia
and its transmutation. It was highly regarded by European alchemists
as the foundation of their art and its Hermetic tradition.” — Wikipedia

Animated version of Book I, Proposition 47, Euclid’s Elements

For Otto Preminger’s birthday:

Lichtung!

Today’s symbol-mongering (see my Sept. 7, 2002, note The Boys from Uruguay) involves two illustrations from the website of the Deutsche Schule Montevideo, in Uruguay.  The first, a follow-up to Wallace Stevens’s remarks on poetry and painting in my note “Sacerdotal Jargon” of earlier today, is a poem, “Lichtung,” by Ernst Jandl, with an illustration by Lucia Spangenberg.

Lichtung

manche meinen
lechts und rinks

velwechsern.

Lucia Spangenberg, 2002.

The second, from the same school, illustrates the meaning of “Lichtung” explained in my note The Shining of May 29:  

“We acknowledge a theorem’s beauty when we see how the theorem ‘fits’ in its place, how it sheds light around itself, like a Lichtung, a clearing in the woods.”
— Gian-Carlo Rota, page 132 of Indiscrete Thoughts, Birkhauser Boston, 1997

From the Deutsche Schule Montevideo mathematics page, an illustration of the Pythagorean theorem:
