Rogers, Archimedes’ Stomachion and the Jacobian connection

Puzzled elephant. One ponders his emotions when assembled. Did you know elephants quite enjoy almonds? Help yourself, as you once helped me.

Who am I? Who are you?

Questions arise always in the contect of Krim, as it is a most inquisitive context.

I was invited recently to speak on Archimedes’ famous puzzle of polygon-alignment, the Stomachion. Those attending my lecture were visibly distraught as I unveiled for them the Jacobian connection. How naïve they are! Any graph has such an interpretation (this has been established – repeatedly!), and the interpretation is without fail a great road to insight. They murmured of mysticism. If this is mystical, then let us revel in it! What is Logik, but an all-encompassing Mysterie?
