David Hestenes' conformal mapping in Geometric Algebra is an
extraordinary achievement of modern algebra with profound implications for
the ontology of mathematics, or what mathematics ** is**,
as well as for visual perception and
spatial consciousness that exhibit a
striking resemblance to Hestenes' conformal mapping. Unfortunately the
mathematics of Hestenes' conformal mapping is extraordinarily abstruse, as
is the Geometric Algebra by which it is defined, which place this
fascinating concept generally beyond the reach of the non-specialist. It
turns out however that both Hestenes' conformal geometry, as well as the
Geometric Algebra on which it is based, are fundamentally visuospatial
concepts, and thus they can be presented in simple intuitive terms that do
not require deep knowledge of algebra.
