Ordinary Euclidean geometry is an example of an infinite Affine geometry since the two axioms are valid in the plane.
The reader can easily verify that the axioms are met and this is an order 2 Affine geometry.
So Euclidian geometry leads to projective and affine geometry, illuminated by Felix Klein's concept of the role of symmetry in geometry; and Cartesian coordinates leads to algebraic varieties.
