The Red Emerald Hourglass
For centuries, every student on Earth was expected to study and master The Elements, because these were The Basics of an education. Euclid's Elements served as humanity's essential guide to understanding Geometry -- the study of forms, shapes and the world around us. Geometry involves the evaluation and definition of three-dimensional structures; fundamentally important to many disciplines, this developed skill will continue dominate as 3D printing and Computer-Aided Design (CAD) take their natural roles as valuable solutions to the problems of a functioning world. In one of history's great achievements, Euclid's work now allows anyone with the ability to read access to this great power of creation.
