In leaf and spar, in star and man,

The measured order of His plan.

In patterns everybody knows,
Simply to follow curve and line

Observing the steady and fatal hands of poachers
And the young loving in wrinkles of the dunes.

Of those who sang their love in Suabian rhymes.

Einstein Gravity, Lagrange-Finsler Geometry, and Nonsymmetric Metrics
In a more general context, we can consider that the N-connection is def ined by an additional geometric structure (independent from the metric and linear connection structures), like in generalized Lagrange–Finsler theories, when certain geometric or physical/mechanical theories are def ined on nonholonomic manifolds.
Einstein Gravity, Lagrange-Finsler Geometry, and Nonsymmetric Metrics
Here, we note that our approach is dif ferent from the so-called analgous gravity where gravitational (for instance, black hole ef fects) are ef fectively modelled by heuristic media and f lows, but not following a rigorous geometric formalism, for instance, that of N-connections and geometric mechanics.
