Hyperbolic geometry

Hyperbolic geometry, or Lobachevskian Geometry is a Non-Euclidean geometry which, among other things, says that given any point A and a line L, at least two distinct lines exist which pass through A and are parallel to L.

A model of it is in the interior of a circle, where the chords represent lines.
