THE WEDDING AND THE OMPHALOS STONE
compiled by Dee Finney
6-17-03 - DREAM - My husband and I went to visit his mother and father for a week at the farm.
When we got there, little children were playing with outdated toys on the floor. I noted that a couple things made out of rope or heavy thread were worn and frayed, so I decided to throw them away. This would be the last time they were used.
Our little niece who looked to be about 3 1/2 years old, was dragging around a piece of netting with a pink bow attached to it. It looked rather new like it hadn't been used in a long time. The netting itself was rather bell-shaped.
Her older sister came in with her friends. They looked like typical teens ad they were dressed in heavy winter sweaters and jeans.
Our niece was going to be a bride shortly, so I asked her to stand by the wall so I could give her a hug and we could take her picture.
At the same time, our youngest niece was dragging around her flower-girl dress and it had a big piece of netting missing - it matching exactly the piece of netting that she had been dragging around earlier.
I have to say here, the netting was the exact shape of the netting on the Omphalos stone.
Both girls were upset that the flower girl's dress was ruined, but I assured the bride that I could fix it by sewing it back together.
The bride said, "You'll never get her to stand still for a dress fitting."
I told her, I don't even need her to be there - I can fit the two pieces back together without her being there.
The bride said, "You don't have enough time to do the sewing."
I asked, "When is the wedding?"
She answered, "Wednesday night."
Since this was only Sunday afternoon, I had 3 1/2 days to do the sewing. Plenty of time.
So I gathered my thread, needle and scissors out of my purse and laid it on the sewing machine, then went into the livingroom to get the family sewing tools, since I hadn't brought my sewing box with me. But as long as I had the needle and thread and scissors, that's all I really needed.
I went into the livingroom and asked my husband to get his camera and take a photo of his sister before she became the bride.
While I was there, I saw a man opening the drawers where the sewing tools were supposed to be.
He had removed them and stacked the drawers with some kind of cards and some 3 x 5 cards that could be written on - like note cards.
So that told me that once we left this place, it would be changed and there would be no coming back to it, once the wedding took place.
Euclid was a Greek mathematician. His book the Elements of Geometry set down how geometry was to be taught for the next 2000 years. He was born in 365BC and died in 275BC.
 But even in physics where correspondence rules are used to 'explain by a four dimensional geometry the cosmic space-time structure, the data of measurements referred to can hardly be regarded as the same as those used to derive geometry initially. So far as this is so, the derivative references of geometry will differ from the correspondence references. Of course, nothing would prevent derivative references to be used also as correspondence references. During the long period while Euclidean geometry maintained sole jurisdiction over the conceptualization of space, there was no practical distinction between the two. And that is why the Euclidean axioms were taken to be a priori determinations of cosmic space relations.
Euclid, who put together the Elements, collecting many of Eudoxus's theorems, perfecting many of Theaetetus's, and also bringing to irrefragable demonstration the things which were only somewhat loosely proved by his predecessors. This man lived in the time of the first Ptolemy. For Archimedes, who came immediately after the first, makes mention of Euclid; and further they say that Ptolemy once asked him if there was in geometry any shorter way that that of the Elements, and he replied that there was no royal road to geometry. He is then younger than the pupils of Plato, but older than Eratosthenes and Archimedes, the latter having been contemporaries, as Eratosthenes somewhere says.
(Plato died 347 B.C.; Archimedes lived 287-212 B.C.)
Latin author, Stobaeus (5th Century A.D.):
Someone who had begun to read geometry with Euclid, when he had learnt the first theorem, asked Euclid, "what shall I get by learning these things?" Euclid called his slave and said, "Give him threepence, since he must make gain out of what he learns."
Sarton, p. 19: Athenian philosopher, Proclus (410 A.D. - 485): Ptolemy I, king of Egypt, asked Euclid "if there was in geometry any shorter way than that of the Elements, and he answered that there was no royal road to geometry."
Heath, History p. 355: Arabian author, al-Qifti (d. 1248):
Euclid, son of Naucrates, and grandson of Zenarchus, called the author of geometry, a philosopher of somewhat ancient date, a Greek by nationality, domiciled at Damascus, born at Tyre, most learned in the science of geometry, published a most excellent and most useful work entitled the foundation or elements of geometry, a subject in which no more general treatise existed before among the Greeks: nay, there was no one even of later date who did not walk in his footsteps and frankly profess his doctrine... For this reason the Greek philosophers used to post up on the doors of their schools the well-known notice, "Let no one come to our school, who has not first learnt the elements of Euclid."
Heath notes that ancient Arabian scholars describe many important Greek scholars as Arabian.
Heath, History p. 356: Pappus (end of 3rd Century A.D.): Apollonius [another mathematician] "spent a very long time with the pupils of Euclid at Alexandria"; also: "The four books of Euclid's Conics were completed by Apollonius, who added four more and gave us eight."
Heath, The Thirteen Books of the Elements, p. 6: The Arabians pronounced Euclides "Uclides" and thought his name came from two Arabic words: Ucli, which means "key," and Dis, which means "measurement." They thought Euclid's name meant, essentially, "key to geometry."
