Hyperbolic Geometry

I’ve left you without math for far too long. Hyperbolic geometry is both brilliant and terrifying: the closer your object gets to the center of the territory (it’s a disk, but I expect you didn’t know that), the larger it needs to appear in “regular geometry” (Euclidean geometry) to have the same hyperbolic measurement. I think of it like a reverse black hole: the closer an object is to the middle, the less dense it gets.
