the accumulation of material that washes up onto the beach of John Parry's shore

A sack of objet trouvé. Ultimately they will be put into drawers and labeled, but until then, until classification and what could be called a collection, they will be arranged by date.

the hilbert curve

The Hilbert curve is a space filling curve that visits every point in a square grid with a size of 2×2, 4×4, 8×8, 16×16, or any other power of 2. It was first described by David Hilbert in 1892. The basic elements of the Hilbert curves are what I call "cups" (a square with one open side) and "joins" (a vector that joins two cups). The "open" side of a cup can be top, bottom, left or right. In addition, every cup has two end-points, and each of these can be the "entry" point or the "exit" point. So, there are eight possible varieties of cups. In practice, a Hilbert curve uses only four types of cups. In a similar vein, a join has a direction: up, down, left or right.
