How Observant is your Science Mind?

This image above I have discussed before on this website. It is also in the legend on the right hand side of this web page. Maybe you can see the "symmetry at play?":)

Dürer Magic Square with Lines

Albrecht Durer and His Magic Square


For those scientifically minded you must see the outlay and thesis adaption of Prof.dr R.H. Dijkgraaf as he demonstrated the totality of the illumination of his thinking? While I captured a small part of it by referencing the magic square, there is lots more there for the observant eye to take hold of.
