In a recent interview, Perelman made a number of interesting statements regarding work he is engaged in. The article is here.
Perelman says, “I have found a way to calculate voids; together with my colleagues we are studying mechanisms for filling social and economical voids. Such voids are everywhere. They can be calculated and it opens great possibilities… I know how to control the universe.”
Now of course, the translation is bad (void is rendered ‘caverns’ in the article), and Perelman might be pulling everyone’s leg. All things being equal, what is he going on about?
