Dear Prof. Dr. John Parker:

From reading about your 2013 ICERM conference, Exotic Geometric Structures, I wondered if a geometry that is relatively unknown, simple, and elegant, might qualify as “exotic” as well? Have you ever seen this figure: https://81018.com/gap-comparison/#15-1 (perhaps https://81018.com/15-2 might work as well)

May I explore it with you? Thank you.



PS My first contact with Durham was with the work of Sophie Gibbs,
