Points (tipping), Lines (9-dash), Planes (military), and Spheres (of influence) - The Geometry of a Changing Relationship

But there was reason for hope as well, as mil-mil communications improved and national leaders used their frequent meetings to seek common ground on combatting climate change and cyber theft.
