SURFACE DELIGHTS (& the delighting of the surface: a study in varying & varied illumination)

Approaching (and only that) --yes; also approaching Zeno's paradoxes--

(a related [then again, what isn't related, on some scale, in some form, through some sort of navigational metaphor?] image of Newton's Principia is here presented to you from Math Is Good for You! where the original context may be experienced)

To continue: Approaching surface as point of contact, as the set of points, particle, wave, plasma, stringy or not points, where interactions can and do occur, inner and external surfaces, locations to attempt engagement and entry;

approaching surface in this way, investigate the following surfaces thinking about ways of entry, and ideas encouraged by the structure (as you perceive it) of the surface points of entry (on various/some scale you specify) about the ways of entry (as you perceive them)

into the following surfaces:

In Quantum physics, scientists are studying a theory of Entanglement; which argues that we (humans, reptiles, earth, moon, uni/multi-verse, etc...) are all connected at a sub-atomic level (string theory; 11th dimension). A lot of humans spend so much time focusing on what divides us, it's refreshing to hear experiments are being run proving connectivity. This is one of many excellent points in the movie/documentary "What the Bleep Do We Know"... which I highly recommend.
