ab: We give a sustained example, drawn largely from earlier publications, of
how we may freely pursue a line of mathematical enquiry if we are not
constrained, unnaturally, to confine ourselves to a single mathematical
subdiscipline; and we draw conclusions from the study of this example
which are relevant at many levels of mathematical instruction. We also
include the statement and proof of a new result (Theorem 4.1) in linear
algebra which is obviously fundamental to the geometrical investigation
which constitutes the leit-motif of the paper.
