“… now, if we reticulate the splines across the Z axis, we can observe exponentially harmonicated variations in… excuse me, did someone just say ‘ba-a-a-a’? Please, I must ask that there be no disruptions in class, thank you.
“As I was saying, the hypotenuse of the cross-quadrant tri-lateral equations may be reconciled into a single self-referencing logarithmic matrix… all right, I distinctly heard someone say ‘ba-a-a-a’ again! I must insist that these disruptions cease!
“And in conclusion, the positive factorials in each of these matrices may be plotted as a series of circles around a central axis, producing a sphere, or as it is also known… Yes, that’s right, a ‘ba-a-a-al’. Thank you, whoever said that.”
