Nymphs and 3-space...?
Sorry if this is an old observation, but it struck me a couple of days ago
that the astrological nymphs' poses seem to indicate three orthogonal
facing direction left - right
hand relative to hip behind - in front
other hand relative to star up - down
Try as I might, I haven't been able to shake this thought: if correct,
there's something unsettlingly modern about this... the basic
*Cartesian-ness* of it all.
Of course, there's always the possibility that these are simply binary
flags, and this is essentially a picture of a binary code... but this too
was only really used by Bacon (Francis, not Roger), IIRC. Were there binary
codes before Bacon? I can't recall seeing any, this could be the earliest.
There's something wrong here, and I can't put my finger on it... :-|
