: Nice story, but not applicable. : 1. 2D creatures do not exist. (sorry, but it IS relevant) : 2. The plane is not infinite, but that doesn't mean that their univers is isn't. : The plane itself is an object in an infinite universe. : If I put you in a giant (3D) box, the fact that you're in the box, doesn't mean : there is notting outside the box.

: So this story doesn't proove anything about the size of the universe or the : number of dimensions. : (Nice story though)

: Science=Religion

The nonexistance of 2D creatures IS NOT relevant. Those creatures and their "space" is only here for comparison.

You are not understanding this. This isn't about a giant 3d box. It's about giant 4d "box".

Please read Theory of Relativity by Albert Einstein. (I mean all of it) And you'll find similar example.
