I just have defined it above.
R is Euclidian means that if xRy and xRz then yRz.
A more concrete "euclidian" relation: W = the plane, i.e. the worlds are
point of the plane. xRy = there is a straight line from x to y.
It is clearly euclidian because if there is a straight line from x to y,
straight line from x to z, there is a straight line from y to z.

You can forget it because 5 is the only formula we will never meet.

Thanks for "Mona Lisa" !.
A short cut? Gosh! My machine interview *is* a terrible short cut :-)
Well I will try to follow a spirale, not giving you all

Don't forget we are going from "the" psychology of the machines, *by* the

So there is some need to be cautious with the vocabulary, to say the
