There is geometry involving curved lines and space.<br />If you magnify the angles concerned, to extreme, even infinite levels, the curved lines <br />will always leave the straight line at slightly less than 90', if infinitely close to 90'.<br />IMHOAnonymoushttps://www.blogger.com/profile/05467665120133330441noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7105209511784664556.post-80485371723904863222021-02-26T21:30:58.562-08:002021-02-26T21:30:58.562-08:00ALL ANGLES ARE CREATED USING STRAIGHT LINES.
