Thanks Geoff for an interesting article and I'm going to read the book in order to become more informed about the theory. At first glance, however, I can't help but note that with so many data points to choose from I could personally construct almost any set of geometric arrangements depending on my personal predilection. Unless the book surprises me, I can't help but think this is a classic example of seeing things that aren't really there: like shapes in clouds or patterns in the stars.

Anyone who enjoys my articles here on Medium may be interested in my books Why Democracy Failed and The Praying Ape, both available from Amazon.
