: : : 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)

: 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". It is an 3D box, because time is not an issue. What I am saying is that by creating the plane YOU create the borders. Which does not automaticly there is nothing beyond the borders you create.

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

Great men make great mistakes. But only the fool won't admit it.
