<span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'><b>NOTE</b></span><br><br>Isotropy at a point dose not imply homogeniality because the properties could diminish away from a point and sill be isotropic at that point.<br><br>Isotropy everywhere does imply homogeniality.<br><br>Some properties have direction so thus if something was homogeneous and had directional dependant properties then it is not isotopic. (Hence an error in my definition)<br><br>If you think of isotropy as having no preferred direction than youre good.<br><br>If you think homogeniality as if you take any picture at a point it looks the same as the same picture at any other point, youre good.

If you've done things right, people won't be sure if you've done anything at all.
