Who's Dewey?!!!!!

I don’t have much to say about this one except that drawing out two different perspective grids on one sheet of paper was a real pain. I chose this word because I was hunting though the dictionary for quotes by authors I like. I wasn’t able to do that when I started this project, as I was using a physical dictionary. But after switching to the public library’s online OED access I was able to harness the power of Advanced Search, at zero cost. They got Consumer Reports on there too.


world line  n.  [after German Weltlinie (H. Minkowski 1909, in Physikalische Zeitschr.)] Physics
a line in space-time comprising the successive points occupied by a particle, celestial object, etc., throughout its history; also in extended use.

In human affairs, individual world lines form a thick tangle, curling out of the darkness of prehistory and stretching through time.
— Kim Stanley Robinson, 'Red Mars' (1993)
