Poignant. Look below the line. Look at the question. The pointing, the critique, the senseless babble of quasi-answers below. And look above the line. Emptiness. Fullness. The void.

Yeah, but would you let that line cum inside you?

Imagine some tentative, would be atheist wandering over to this list and seeing Big Discussions list and then zoom, there outta here so fast and we lost 'em.

a finite segment with an infinite number of points within, but absolutely no presumptions about anything else.

It's that tricksy tool for the technique the nasty cops use to see if I can walk it when I've had a vodka.  Nasty tricksy thing, we hates it.

It is the line I refuse to cross, beyond which lies madness.

The projection of a 3D object, with 'z' set to zero?

Speaking of maps unseen have you ever seen the Peter's projection map ? http://www.petersmap.com/

@ Judith van der Roos

Interesting. Thanks for the link. I'm not sure what to think of it, however. I'm just fascinated by the fact that even that map treats the geometric points of the poles as a line, ignoring the fact that the geometric point is depicted as being equal to the circumference at the equator—about 25,000 mi/40,000 km.
