And to think research in euclidean geometry was declared dead years ago!
Is the following known? It relates to a problem from Antreas.
Let P be a point in the plane of triangle ABC with centroid G,, let Ga,
Gb, and Gc be the centroids of triangles PBD, PAC, and PAB respectively,
then AGa, BGb, and CGc are concurrent at a point that is threefourths
the way from P to G.
Antreas had looked at using incenters, but the problem is not universal
as for the centroid.
Conjecture: let X be a triangle center, then there exists a point P so
that if Xa, Sb, Xc are the centers of the triangles PBC, PAC, and PAB
then AXa, BXb, and CXc are concurrent.
It actually appears that for a given center, there are infintely many
such points P. But only for the centroid is it true for every point.
The theorem I have proved.

triangle centers about 5 or 6 years ago. He also gave a computational
apparatus in trilinears to compute the new center. The part of this
theorem that may be new is the last statement.

The article by Clark has some such discussion. He gives systematic ways
to compute the centers if P is the incenter.
This subject is s big challange but I also agree that it is worth
exploring.

This curve goes through
A, B, C, H, K, the reflections of A, B, C, H w.r.t the sides, the two
isodynamic points and a lot of other ones I don't know.

Dear Bernard and all,
if Pa, Pb, Pc are the Lemoine points of PBC, PCA, PAB, the locus of P in
order to have Apa, BPb, CPc concurrent is, as I told, a bicircular curve of
degree 5.
We need 16 conditions to determine a bicircular curve of degree 5.
This one
 goes through H; K; the two isodynamic points; the reflections of A, B, C
w.r.t BC, CA, AB;
 is tangent to AK at A, to BK at B, to CK at C
 the three other points on the circumcircle lie on the lines AK, BK, CK
Total = 16
In fact, we know the six points on the circumcircle; hence the curve cannot
go the through the reflections of H w.r.t the sides, as I said a bit too
quickly.
If A1 is the point of AK lying on the circumcircle, I think the curve goes
through A2 where
Vect(AA2) = 1/2 Vect(AA1).
The curve goes through the infinite point of GK too.
Friendly from France.

so  :
Let X(ABC) a triangle center such as
Vect(OX) = k Vect(OH)  O circumcircle, H orthocenter, k constant  and X'
such as Vect(OX') = 1/k Vect(OH).
Then the locus of P such as the lines A_X(PBC),
B_X(PCA), C_X(PAB) are concurrent is the uninon of the circumcircle and of
the cubic F going through A, B, C, H, X, X' and the reflections A', B', C'
of the vertices w.r.t. the sides.
For instance :
X = H (k = 1) : F = the union of the three altitudes
X = O (k = 0) : F = The Neuberg cubic
X = Longchamps ( k = 1) : F = The cubic discovered by Bernard  this curves
goes through A,B,C,H,A',B',C', the eight centers of Soddy circle and is
tangent to the Euler_line at Longchamps
X = nine point center (k = 1/2) ...and so on.
I think it would be interesting to try to generalize this property
1) when k is a symmetric polynomial in a, b, c
2) when X(A, B, C) is barycentric f(a, b,c)  f(b,c,a)  f(c, a, b) where f
is an homogeneous polynomial
I conjecture that the locus of P is allways an algebraic curve through A, B,
C, H, A', B', C', X.

More over, the center of curvature at H is the same one for all those
cubics, but I didn't succeed in recognizing this point among the well known
triangle centers.

only need to notice all the cubics have a triple contact in H because the
polar conic of H is a rectangular hyperbola going through H, L and the 3
harmonic conjugates of H wrt A & A', B & B', C & C' which means, as
JeanPierre said, they have the same center of curvature in H.
I checked M in Clark's ETC : it's called X(54) = Kosnita point. Never heard
of it before...
As I said to JeanPierre in a private message, I am not very happy with the
fact this locus is a quintic [5th degree]. I would prefer a sextic [6th
degree] decomposed in a quintic and the line at infinity. It would be more
coherent when we use complex projective notions like cyclic points, circular
curves, etc.
It seems this quinticsextic degenerates when the center is on the Euler
line. It doesn't when it is K for example.
QUESTION :
when does the locus degenerates ?
I was looking for a geometric description of the cubic I found recently.
It came out from something apparently not related at a first sight showing
this cubic is in fact a close cousin of the Neuberg cubic.
Isn't fascinating ?
regards and congratulations to JeanPierre again.

for 1/k.
So, let's investigate now for k between 1 and 1.

point O + p(HO), the letter "E", of course, standing for "Eulerian"
since the standard centers of this type are the Eulerian ones
E0 = O, E1 = H, E(1/3) = G, E(1/2) = N
and we can add the de Longchamps point E(1) = L, and the point at infinity
on the Euler line, E(infinity).
So, if I'm reading it correctly, the result is that the locus of P for
which the Ekcenters of PBC,PCA,PAB are in perspective with ABC is the
union of the circumcircle and a certain cubic, let's call it Ck, that
generalizes the Neuberg cubic (k=0), and degenerates to the union of the
altitudes when k = 1.
Do you have the barycentric equation of this cubic?

All those cubics go through A,B,C, their reflections w.r.t. the sides, H and
have the same center of curvature at H  they are tangent at H to the line
H  isogonal conjugate of nine points center.
I would like to add something : ( I incenter)
If the line I Ek intersects
 the Feuerbach hyperbola at I, G(k)
 the cubic C(k) at Ek, S1, S2
Then (I, G(k), S1, S2) is harmonic.
Of course, we have similar properties for the excenters.
Hence, as G(1) = Gergonne, it becomes easiest to understand why the
"Bernard cubic "  C(1)  goes through the eight Soddy centers.
I think there are a lot of other nice relations between the three following
pencils :
 the self isogonal cubics with pivot on the Euker line (they go through
vertices, incenter, excenters, orthocenter, circumcenter)
 the C(k) pencil
 the rectangular hyperbolas through A,B,C
We can notice too that
G(0) = incenter; G(1) = Gergonne;
G(1) = orthocenter; G(1/3) = Nagel;
G(inf) = X_79; G(1/2) = X_80;
G(something) = Mittenpunkt ;
G(sthing else) = Schiffler ...

Let's call (P) the quintic.
Let's call Q the point of concurrence.
The transformation f:P>Q is quadratic, so the locus of Q should be a

f(A1) = point of intersection of AK and BC.
f(A) = A
f(H) = X(53)
f(K) = X(251)
f(point of infinity of GK) = G
f(isodynamics) = {X(61),X(62)}
A2 is on the quintic and f(A2) = A
points KPQ are always colinears (may be it is true for all triangle
center?)
The quintic (P) intersects the line AK at {A,A,A1,A2,K}.
The quintic (P) intersects the line at infinity at the point of
infinity of GK and twice the cyclic points.
The quintic (P) intersects the line circumcircle (O) at
{A,B,C,A1,B1,C1, twice cyclic points
We can do very nice pictures of (P), but for (Q), I have no equation
for the moment.

The pencil of cubics F is very interesting indeed.
In this pencil, the Neuberg cubic is the only cubic isoinvariant.(
For example, there'is no isotomicinvariant) and the only circular
too.
The conjecture of JeanPierre seams quite difficult to proove. (I try
with centers on line OK and OI without success).

I'm sorry, but I don't understand that.
As the cubic goes through the orthocenter, the cubic, if it was an
isogonal one, should go through the circumcenter, which occurs only
for k = 0.
