What do you think the definition of geometric object is?

QuoteWhat do you think the definition of geometric object is?My (very limited) understanding is that geometric objects are points, lines, curves, conic sections etc; as distinct from geometric shapes, which are squares, triangles, circles etc.I bet you were looking for something more esoteric.

I thought of a manifold being defined by points/events, on that manifold each observer creates their own coordinate system/frame of reference as dictated by their observations as they move about that manifold.In other words, their experience of the manifold points/events may not be the same as other observers.Energy/mass alter that manifold so that it, the manifold, is not the same everywhere.

This maybe gobbledygook and completely off topic... so I won't go on.Well, you did ask. No laughing there.
