Our universe seems to be replete with beauty and value, though encounting them sometimes takes work and exploration. This is my little haven of gems and things that have delighted me, and I hope they do the same for you.

Case in point, the figure on the right encodes both the algebra and geometry of the Octonions, an 8-dimensional number system that somehow seems to like at the heart of some deep symmetries in math and physics.

Here’s a list of topics that you could potentially nerd-snipe me with:

*Programming*: Shell, APL, x86 assembly, Forth*Math*: Geometry of probability spaces, Category theory, Topology*Rationality*: AI Safety, LessWrong, Effective Altruism*Philosophy*: Deluze and Guttari, Bataille, Nick Land*Fiction*: House of Leaves, The Mezanine, Diaspora*Reproducibility*: Guix and Nix*Physics*: Magnetohydrodynamics, Surface physics, Metrology
