    Poetry Mathematics 


    2.1. ( a ) What is literal in poetry must be in some significant way (aspect, regard) incomplete, so that there is no complete discernable literal proposition. ( b ) This is a feature of the idea that poetry, as its mathematics, must be both incomprehensible and incontrovertible.

    2.2. Poetry differs from nonsense in being incontrovertible.
    It cannot be proved to be nonsense, that nothing is being said.

    2.3. The classics are static. They do not change.

    2.4. A greater amount of emotion is the effect of a greater
    work of art.

    2.5. No one is capable of understanding poetry except for
    the poet.

    2.6. My actions mimic yours. This is what is known
    as meter.

    2.7. “Form” is what we call the appearance of chaos.

    The Mathematics of Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” 

    Physicist Werner Heisenberg said, “When I meet God, I am going to ask him two questions: why relativity? And why turbulence? I really believe he will have an answer for the first.” As difficult as turbulence is to understand mathematically, we can use art to depict the way it looks. Natalya St. Clair illustrates how Van Gogh captured this deep mystery of movement, fluid and light in his work. Lesson by Natalya St. Clair, animation by Avi Ofer.
