Outfit + Hairstyle: The outfit and hairstyle can be similar and inspired by the outfits and hair that the Diamonds in the show are presented with since the stone is used to imitate diamonds (see ‘Weapon’); the outfit could also look like a scientist’s jacket/lab coat since Cubic Zirconia is often synthesized “As with the majority of grown diamond substitutes, the idea of producing single-crystal cubic zirconia arose in the minds of scientists seeking a new and versatile material for use in lasers and other optical applications. Its production eventually exceeded that of earlier synthetics, such as synthetic strontium titanate, synthetic rutile, YAG (yttrium aluminium garnet) and GGG (gadolinium gallium garnet)… Because the natural form of cubic zirconia is so rare, all cubic zirconia used in jewelry has been synthesized, or created by humans.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cubic_zirconia
The scenes climb and twist at odd angles
that bring to mind the film Inception. The hulking, maze-like structures appear to go on forever. Brown sees it as a chance to
create something he can explore uninhibited.
The Rhind Papyrus - dating from around 1650 BC, but probably based on a document 200 years older - contains a problem: “A quantity and its 1/7 part become 19. What is the quantity?” The problem is solved in the Egyptian manner of regula falsi; that is, one assumes a - probably wrong - solution. This is known as the method of contradiction now. Today we would solve this using algebra.
The Ahmes papyrus and other ancient Egyptians scrolls are mainly concerned with problems leading to first-degree equations, but also describe some second-degree equations relating to land surveying. Babylonian clay tablets from the time of the Hammurabi dynasty (about 1800 - 1600 BC) deal with quadratic equations and their solutions by the method of “completing the square”, and also describe numerical methods of solving all quadratic equations and some simpler forms of cubic equations.
