The above Quanta  article mentions

"Maryna Viazovska’s 2016 discovery of the most efficient

Reality for Academia

The title of the previous post, "Ground Omega," suggests a related  nightmare . . .

A writer of fiction in the previous post

"When we say a thing is unreal, we mean it is too real…."

Old joke —

"What you mean 'we,' paleface?"

At Ground Omega  in the above My Hero Academia  site —

"The twenty-four students are split into six groups of four…."

I prefer the similar splittings of  the Curtis  Omega

"When we say a thing is unreal, we mean it is too real,
a phenomenon so unaccountable and yet so bound to
the power of objective fact that we can’t tilt it to the slant
of our perceptions."  — DeLillo, 2001
