I am familiar with Clifford algebras, the concept of spinor and the Hopf fibration of the S^3 sphere.

I know that all of these somehow relate to the concept of

*twistor*.

Does anyone know how to explain in simple words what is a twistor and what it is useful for in geometry (please do not mention direct real-world applications in physics, let's just stick with pure geometry).

Thanks.
