Recall that Motives are about projective geometry. Naturally then, Motivic Cohomology should be about diagrams with lots of points and lines. We want to build very complicated geometries, perhaps to probe the region close to a Black Hole, from such diagrams. Now we see that dualities abound in motivic pictures. The most basic of these is the one between Space and Time. So there are also singularities in Time, as we observe.

Maybe this is all an April Fool's Joke? Who knows?

Have you downloaded the free AMS book Mixed Motives by Marc Levine?

April fools joke? Ms. Sheppeard are you implying the "M" really stands for Mischief? ;)

Another great drawing. It looks like that hexagon at Saturn's North Pole. Perhaps you should write a book. Your posts have the makings of an introduction to M-theory.

I appreciate your support again.
