Mathison, Maths, and Mystery

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Alan Turing and Kenny Dalglish
Share the same middle name
But the similarity does not end there
For both men claimed the mantle of geometric genius
The football field
With its equations and angles
Matched symmetrically with
Mathematical precision and Fibonacci sum
And although AI dominates
Both men broke the mould
And cannot be replicated
Playing out for all time
On the enigmatic pitch of
‘God’s holy pantomime’*.



* line taken from a short poem Turing wrote before his death in 1954.
