I have this uneasy feeling about what I said here -- not that I struck out, but rather, that I fouled off a fat pitch that I shoulda hit out of the park. IOW, the feeling that "not entirely unrelated" is an understatement, and that the connections are in fact deep. I better go off to plough thru my Herstein and see to what degree this is really so.
Of course, dimension is strictly a vector-space thingy and so maybe that's why I'm not getting booed out of the park quite yet. I hope. Um, comments?
