How does science work? And what's all this about quantum mechanics?

### Is our universe Euclidean?

The evidence points that way from everything I read from the internet, as opposed to Riemannian or Lobachevskian space. Do you agree?

Considering Euclidian Axioms are the required premises of further geometries, all non-euclidian geometries can be observed as approximate understandings of Euclidian axioms.

To elaborate this point:

The straight line and the curved line.

Everything we understand of the straight line is premised as an infinite extradimensional projection, as direction, in 0d space which can only project itself if it relates to itself (considering there can be no direction in 0d space as there is nowhere to move).

Hence the straight line becomes its own standard which forms the basic structure of ratio and proportion as it must fold through itself to form angles and from angles frequencies.

The frequency, as the repetition of angles, observes the line as composed of frequencies in itself if view relative to a larger line.

Any curvature is merely the approximation of a frequency which is formed from various non-equal angles from a distance as an approximate angle.

Perfect circles and lines are human inventions. So no.

"Is our universe Euclidean?"

Only till the stars are right, Cthulhu rises, and Azathoth reorganizes the universe.

Euclidean geometry is a description of the Universe based on the observations that have been made. Math is descriptive rather than prescriptive. Math describes what is, math doesn't say how the Universe should be.

Than why does all the matter in the universe eventually lead to consciousness as a form of description?
