This video is intended for a general audience as an ‘entry-level’ introduction to this stunning conundrum Shakespeare left for posterity. In the video I mention that there’s a dedicated YouTube channel for those who wish to double-check the deeper math for themselves. That resource has been located instead under the new MATH menu at the website: www.ToBeOrNotToBe.org. Many important questions are more thoroughly answered there than were possible to address in this short introductory video. I hope the true nerds amongst you will avail yourselves of this deeper data.
A few astute observers have commented that they think they’ve spotted an error concerning the 3:4:5 triangle, GEB. The error is not in the mathematics, however, it’s in my omission of slides for that triangle. I used the average hypotenuse, 37.79, without explaining it, and some then assumed that value was applicable to the 3:4:5 triangle. Of course it then fails the Pythagorean Theorem test.
I should’ve made that clearer and I apologize for the confusion it has caused.
If you visit here — http://www.tobeornottobe.org/math — the minor discrepancies necessitated by tailoring this for more widespread appeal will all resolve themselves. The secret lies in the ‘G’ dot being so much larger than all the others.
