When I was trying to become a teacher and was teaching math in Lexington, MA,USA high school, after getting kicked out of Star Wars research, I derived all of the theorems of plane geometry using points rather than lines. It turned out to be even simpler than the usual development, and probably closer to reality. Unfortunately they could not hire me full-time as I had a PhD, so I finbally ended up in software test engineering, the most fun job I've ever had.



PS I often get zero and infinity confused. Maybe the Romans had the right idea.
