To become more familiar with Lill’s method I recommend going through the links provided in my Lill’s Method page.

Things to Come: Special Drawing Rights, the Petrodollar and The New Economic System

(Note: This is an article that I wrote in 2018 on HubPages ) I believe that in the very near future the world will see some major global transitions.

Frégier’s Theorem and Frégier Points

Due to the properties of the Frégier point, Frégier’s theorem provides a practical means of constructing with straightedge and square the tangent to a conic at any point on the respective conic. Constructing a Frégier point is very easy and the procedure is the same for any type of conic section (parabola, hyperbola, ellipse or circle).

Resources page update

I updated my resources page by adding a mythology and fables section. The section has a few links to various websites that have Aesop’s fables, Grimm’s stories, Andersen’s stories and various national fables or folk tales.

Music by Johann Gottlieb Naumann

Johann Gottlieb Naumann is a German composer from the 18th century. He is probably most famous for creating the Dresden Amen chord sequence. Today he is probably considered an obscure composer considering the results you get when you google “Johann Gottlieb Naumann reddit”. I discovered Naumann a few years ago, probably doing random Youtube video… Continue reading Music by Johann Gottlieb Naumann
