Abstract: Using a ``3 by 3 matrix trick'' we show that multiplication (an algebraic structure) in a $C$*-algebra ${\mathcal{A}}$ is determined by the geometry of the $C$*-algebra of the 3 by 3 matrices with entries from ${\mathcal{A}}$, $M_{3} ({\mathcal{A}})$. This is an example of an algebra-geometry duality which, we claim, has applications.
