reviewed Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions on
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. But once he does then his mind is open to the possibility of 4-dimension and beyond. But when he tries to convince his fellow 2-dimension shapes, they are closed minded and throw him in prison. I don't understand the point to using inferior and dangerous women in this science fiction world.
