`Hi Jesse,`
` `
`        I have two questions about your circular geometry.  On December 18,`
`you posted`
` `
`[John Conway]`
`>"If we're just talking about some purely conceptual space then the`
`assertions are meaningless until that space is somehow defined.  `
`Jesse speaks of "circular geometry", in which a "point" is the`
`smallest unit area, and in other statements he's made it clear`
`that he thinks of these "points" as little circles and lines`
`as like strings of beads:  oooooooooooooooooo, in which `
`any two adjacent ones touch each other at a point."`
` `
`[You]`
`"Response: You seem to understand pretty well what I mean. Here is how`
`a plane would look, with lots of points;`
` `
`oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo`
`oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo`
`oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo`
`oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo`
`oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo`
` `
`The above points are circular, solid, and touching horizontally as`
`well as vertically. I can't draw a solid circle with this email`
`system. A point, as you say, is the smallest, allowable round unit`
`area in a system."`
` `
`        What do you call the area between the points?  Isn't there always a`
`smaller sized point?`
