Reading this made me think, of course, of the case of Bermuda triangle. And then i ask myself: are Bermuda triangle the simplest form of turbulence/disruption in the laws of physics? Could it be Bermuda square, circle or even Bermuda sphere? I wonder?

Good work!
Maybe we met by the coffee shop by the "paradoxe perdu" one of these days.
