Would that be a case of Poincaré reoccurence?

This joke depends on recognising that the "Lorentz equations", taken as the Lorentz group, are a subgroup of the Poincaré group, the full symmetry group of spacetime without gravity, and we can therefore pun on the notion of Poincaré reoccurence for someone who intends to return on Lorentz equations. Yes, we need an icon fro this joke requires a subscript. I now, mainly, write javascript.
