Orthocentric System

In geometry, an orthocentric system is a set of four points in the plane one of which is the orthocenter of the triangle formed by the other three.

If four points form an orthocentric system, then each of the four points is the orthocenter of the other three. These four possible triangles will all have the same nine-point circle. Consequently these four possible triangles must all have circumcircles with the same circumradius.

    Delight at having understood a very abstract and obscure system leads most people to believe in the truth of what it demonstrates.
