It was an interesting way to view dimensions and various shapes ... although I had a tough time getting my mind around some of the concepts. It covers 1-dimension of a point, who is full of himself. Then the 2-dimension square is introduced to a 3-dimension cube. At first, this was difficult for him to comprehend.

I don't understand the point to using inferior and dangerous women in this science fiction world.
