I bet Emma could square a circle with some computer graphics. A few appropriate quaternions, and you're done. As for legislating a point in space, I suppose it's effectively been done, at least with a line, in accepting the Prime Meridian, which is not so fixed after all, what with plate tectonics and all. And then there's legislating against truth in the name of Truth with *nt*ll*g*nt d*s*gn and the like. And that Texas law about defaming agricultural products? Truth is not a defence. And then there are the Blue Laws, which legislate that certain points, and curves, and surfaces shall not touch or overlap.
