Let's have some more fun with pictures. A ribbon can be drawn on a boundary tube, even if the tube has to twist to keep up with the edges of the ribbon. Using the edges of the ribbon as boundaries for square pieces of tube, we could draw swiss cheese pictures on the cylinder. But instead of disc operad circles we could add in points and make a swiss cheese cubes operad picture. I apologise if I'm making up inappropriate names for these diagrams. According to Aaronson, M Theory will probably not be able to show that P = NP. This hypothesis is about packing cubes inside bigger cubes in polynomial time.
