Title: Using a torus (or donut) to answer puzzles in psychology and even apportionments
Abstract: A torus, or the surface of a regular donut, is a simple object. Yet, with mathematics, it provides explanations for puzzles ranging from how the brain interprets images, or colors, to debates about how Congressional seats should be assigned to states based on population figures.
