To say that Pythagoras, who lived over 2500 years ago, would be astounded by what I just did in his honor says nothing. I mean, let’s face it: he’d be astounded by kale chips, boomerangs, and tubas.
So I didn’t do it for him. I didn’t do it for any valid reason, really.
I’ve always been impressed that a mathematical theorem can be demonstrated visually in a few seconds, providing such a strong intuitive grasp. Plus, there are bubbles and waves, which always attract my attention.
