I suppose Escher took great pleasure in mapping out
logic geometrically, and such visual logics as
optical illusions, Klein bottles and Moebius
strips suggest algebraic geometry as a tool.
But aliasing and it's complement interference,
are more immediately apparent in physics as
non-orthogonalities.

The mere idea of a coordinate in space, is in a sense
a non-orthogonal representation, of orthogonal 'states',
of (x,y,z,...) to which we can assign weights or magnitudes
and even probabilities.

Whorf's work suggests that Hopi was a space-like language
and there are many papers and books suggesting languages
with beginnings where 'space' was the earlier commodity
followed later by 'time', and now space-time is the
macroscopic commodity in GIS information systems, etc.

Sapir-Whorf's relativity, Quine's translation indeterminacy,
and Saussure's synchronic/diachronic analysis all point
to a very generalized communications theory where these are
analogs of physical relativity theory, quantum uncertainty
and spectral-temporal analysis respectively.

Even less objectively, the idea of space-time is imbedded
in the mind-body problem itself and the left-rightness of
the human brain.
