The Nature of Parallelism

Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
Examine how our usual definition of parallelism is impossible to check. Use the fundamental assumptions from the previous lectures to follow in Euclid’s footsteps and create an alternative way of checking if lines are parallel. See how, using this result, it’s possible to compute the circumference of the Earth just by using shadows!
