“Intuitionist zone” would have been a little more precise 🙂
I am pretty sure there are Elliptic Geometry Zones in the Research Triangle area of NC…there are some decidedly non-Cartesian roads and intersections!
What would be good for Yield? Field?
Maybe a series for weight limit like speed limit?
One Way really makes me want some other numbers. sqrt(2) way, 1/2 way, …
Ooh, I like the idea of variations on the 1-way sign.
I guess a 1/2 way street would have a lower fractal dimension? Like, Cantor’s ternary set could be an ln(2)/ln(3)-way street?
Semi-relevant: while driving the other day I passed a “detour” sign with no indication of what it’s a detour from. But then I realized that’s no problem: it’s a detour from pretty much any path!
I love the deeply mathematical term “dope.”
Amazing!, new follower here.
