A Straight Line Extended

It is usually ignored by people that lines don’t actually exist in the real world. The system is always in a delicate balance but our cognition is limited and incomplete to acknowledge this fragility. Working through the notion of the illogical creating a framework for the logical, this work investigates and develops the perceived concrete aspects of natural geometry and symmetry, and rewrites the semantics of description.
