I tried asking “To what extent are we actually exchanging “stacks”? [closed] on the mathematics meta.
I’m not sure what I did wrong here. Aren’t we, as mathematicians, concerned with the accurate reproducibility of the mental objects that we produce? The precision of the language of mathematics should not be mythical or hearsay. If we can measure how precise the language that we are using, we can determine, quantiatively and metrically where there might be gaps in our understanding, rather than just puzzling about those gaps.
Why do so many zooms of the Mandelbrot set M focus on just one portion of the seahorse valley? What is more demanding of human attention in that region than others?

And here’s a zoom I found on youtube.
And from the revered Heinz-Otto Peitgen:
Something is tickling our aesthetic senses. We need to figure out what.
If Teichmüller space is the space of classes of isotopic conformal structures, then lets
Meichtüller space as the space of classes of isographic quasiconformal structures.
