The speed of light comes out of strip geometry. As we can tell that
the speed of light if travelling around Earth from pole to pole as
strips of longitude lines that in 1 second, given a width of strip
that the speed of light would make one circuit around Earth.

Now Strip Geometry would not be welcomed in Old Math where they had no
borderline of finite with infinite. And where Old Math had this lousy
and insane notion of absolute-continuity for which physics had enough
sense by early 1900s with quantum mechanics to dismiss absolute
continuity along with absolute space and absolute time. It is just
that mathematics never had any true leadership during the whole of the
20th century.

When you place the borderline of finite with infinite at 10^603, you
also make holes between successive Real Numbers of a minimum hole of
10^-603. That means the graphing of functions or of geometrical
objects are strips of geometry.

Now strip-geometry is what most objects are made of. For example a
house is usually made of strips of 2 by 4 lumber and 4 by 8 plywood,
or strips of concrete block.

The Calculus of mathematics is strip-geometry for the integral are
strips of picket fences and the derivative are strips of triangles.

Now Physics itself is strip-geometry because the atom is composed of
subatomic parts such as electrons or neutrons or protons or photons
etc, each of which is considered a strip.

What is the opposite notion of strip in strip-geometry? Well, I
suppose something that is molded would be the opposite. If an atom had
no parts but just one molded object. Or I suppose one could mold a
house and then take a crane and lift it into place.

So if something is whole from the very beginning it is not strip-
geometry made.

Now Geometry of Old Math has this huge blemish of its axioms such as
the Hilbert axioms or even the number axiom systems of Peano with his
Natural Numbers. For in both axiom systems they have no axiom to say
if their axioms are strip objects or molded objects. Of course, both
Hilbert axioms of geometry and Peano axioms of Natural Numbers assumed
a strip-axiomatics. They assumed their axioms are pieces that when put
together form their objects of mathematics. Hilbert assumes points
produce lines and lines produce points and triangles are strips of
line segments. Peano assumed 0 and 1 would produce 2 and then 3, then
4 etc.

But those tacit and hidden assumptions is not what mathematics is
about and what mathematics tries to avoid at all cost.

What I am arguing in this post is to introduce Strip-Geometry and then
to show that both Physics and Mathematics is all about strip-geometry.

A sphere with volume and surface area does not exist all at once and
without parts. Although a mathematician can imagine it in his mind as
all at once from out of nowhere. But rather, a sphere with volume and
surface area is put together by strips of successive points with tiny
holes between those points.

So here we reach the crux of geometry and physics.

If a line is composed of successive points and holes such as this:


Then what keeps the line together in both physics and mathematics?

Well, in physics the answer is easy in that the Coulomb force
traverses empty space so that a line in physics of this


is the same as this


And in mathematics, it really does not matter whether a line is this


or this


So this is an introduction to Strip-Geometry.

And strip-geometry is mathematics. And the basic idea, is that a
geometrical object is made up of strips, or call them lines with

A point in strip-geometry also has length, width and depth.
