"The term geometry is derived from the two Greek words geo and metric. It means "to measure the Earth." The great irony is that the most basic building block in geometry, the point, has no measurement at all. You must accept that a point exists in order to have lines and planes because lines and planes are made up of an infinite number of points. If you do not accept the assumption that a point can exist without size or dimension, then the rest of this lesson (and book) cannot exist either."

Does this mean if I don't believe in the point, my life is pointless? I never realized the theological implications of my low marks in geometry. Was I a matheist in my youth? And if I can't help my daughter write a proof, is there any point? And if there is no point, was Georges Seurat an artist?
OK, I'm done.
