Hi Colin,

I enjoyed the link you messaged of the YouTube Math presentation using Geogebra to exhibit the circle and square phenomena. I haven't taken time to determine why point "A" on the base of the square is always the center of the circle. I'll study it further. Thanks for sharing.

A documentary is in the making about mathematician and poet Alexander Esenin-Volpin and other dissidents of the former Soviet Union.

Alexander Esenin-Volpin led work on the mathematics of Ultrafinitism: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultrafinitism

A machine translation of part of the interview with photographer and documentary maker Irene Caesar:
Dmitri Volchek: Irina, please provide your heroes.
Alexander Esenin-Volpin
Irina Caesar: The film will focus on the man who, according to Victor Balashov, was a pioneer of the dissident movement in Russia. We went to Boston to do a detailed interview with this man. This is Alexander Esenin-Volpin, a famous Russian-American poet, mathematician and advocate.

I discovered this article via Irene Caesar's post in the LinkedIn group "Art, Media & Entertainment CIS" http://www.linkedin.com/groups?home=&gid=1921812
Irene Caesar is President at Caesar Studios

He was an absolute nonconformist. I once sat opposite him in a metro carriage. He so stretched his legs as almost touch mine while demonstratively picking his nose and checking the result by raising his hand to light.

This looks so fabulous. The natural world is incredible, but I have to admit that I particularly enjoy the exuberance illustrated in the left-most picture of the 2nd-to-last row! Thanks for sharing.
