    I did and its great! Thanks for the mention.

    Currently M. C. Escher's Circle Limit IV is my desktop image for its citation by Leonard Susskind as an illustration of the effect of negatively curved space. Meditating on it I have gained insight into the Big Bang, our universe, and the Mega/multiverse. Now I am ready to move on and find an appropriate image of a Calabi-Yau manifold.
