Is it also possible to see an allusion here to boxology whis is defined as "a
representation of an organized structure as a
graph<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graph_theory> of
labeled nodes ("boxes <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rectangle>") and
connections between them (as lines<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Line_(geometry)>
or arrows <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arrow_(symbol)>)"? Or is this term
younger than "The Lectures"?
