The former dealt with some philosophy and
mathematics related to graphic design.
The latter dealt with death and finality.

that, revisiting Sept. 3rd, unites the topics of
death and design.
By DANIEL E. SLOTNIK

* This post's title and "The Stone" above refer to the New York Times

"When New Haven was founded, the city was laid out into a grid of nine squares surrounded by a great wilderness.

Scully said the colony's founders thought of their new Puritan settlement as a 'nine-square paradise on Earth, heaven on earth, New Haven, New Jerusalem.'"
"Real and unreal are two in one:
Before and after one arrives…."
