Heaven itself delights in ironies such
As this, in which a boy's fingers would touch

He is packing up his many books, including those on Euclid, the Greek mathematician, and the Pythagorean Theorem, subjects he has taught for 34 years.
"You mean like the Pythagorean Theorem.".
Indeed, the diagram implies the existence of a right triangle with sides 12, 12, and 17, and that's not quite a Pythagorean triple: 122 + 122 = 288 and 172 = 289.

In science:
On the other hand, a Pythagorean theorem is a consequence of rotational symmetry, and the latter can be obtained through the commutation of Lorentz transformations.
Causal set as a discretized phase spacetime
In light of this, one might argue that if we ”don’t know” Lorentz transformations, we shouldn’t ”know” Pythagorean theorem either.
Causal set as a discretized phase spacetime
On the one hand, postulating Pythagorean theorem requires less axioms and less small constants, so it is more natural from the formal point of view.
Causal set as a discretized phase spacetime
In light of this controversy, I leave it to the reader to choose between sec 3.3 where Pythagorean theorem is postulated by hand and sec 3.4 through sec 3.6 where other axioms are postulated in order to derive it.
Causal set as a discretized phase spacetime
In fact, we are yet to see whether simple things like Pythagorean theorem or Lorentzian geometry hold.
