16. So are there any other things this BBS-ISL Matrix can do? I getting kinda bored, ya know!

Yes! Hundreds and hundreds of things. Too many to name here, but there is another very interesting geometry that really sticks out—the Pythagorean Triples (PTs), a.k.a. Pythagorean Triangles.

17. What’s that?

Everyone, sooner or later, learns about the Pythagorean Theorem. You know, add up the “squares” of the right-triangle’s sides and that sum equals the “square” of the long, hypotenuse side. (A right-triangle has a 90° angle in it.)

The Pythagorean Triples (PTs) are 90° right-triangles composed solely of Natural Whole numbers—just like in the BBS-ISL Matrix. They come in two forms: primitives (irreducible “parent” forms) and non-primitives (multiples of the primitives, “child” forms). There are an infinite number of both.
