    Euclidean space, In geometry, a two- or three-dimensional space in which the axioms and postulates of Euclidean geometry apply; also, a space in any finite number of dimensions, in which points are designated by coordinates (one for each dimension) and the distance between two points is given by a distance formula.

    Crooked trees are always a problem when presentation is a consideration (e.g., which aspect should be the “front” view). The Otterloop tree is so loopy that Peter questions its dimensional status; but I’m sure he’s just being facetious. Peter’s humor goes largely unappreciated in a family of such strong, and individualistic, personalities….

    Yep. Looks like it’s already in warp.

    Nothing like a Lovecraftian non-Euclidean tree for the home.

    Typical. The first position was good enough; but once you fiddle with it, it gets worse for a while.

    “Non-Euclidean geometry is sometimes connected with the influence of the 20th century horror fiction writer H. P. Lovecraft. In his works, many unnatural things follow their own unique laws of geometry: In Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos, the sunken city of R’lyeh is characterized by its non-Euclidean geometry. It is heavily implied this is achieved as a side effect of not following the natural laws of this universe rather than simply using an alternate geometric model, as the sheer innate wrongness of it is said to be capable of driving those who look upon it insane.”

    This time, Richard’s blog entry covers the last 8 non-Sunday strips, plus the Sunday strip from November 29.Sorry, about pointing to the wrong blog entry in my earlier, now deleted post (sometimes it’s too early in the morning for such things).
