Hi Richard,

I would really like to discuss this subject with you. I think we are about the same age and have some similar interests. I also think there is some mismatch between our respective strengths and weaknesses. Therefore, I am confident that we are in a position to learn something from each other -- at least I am sure I can learn from you.

I have given the concepts of space and dimensionality a lot of thought over the years and I am convinced that most discussions of the ideas contain mistaken and oversimplified notions. I am interested in pursuing the question with you being careful to be as clear and accurate as possible.

If you are willing, let me start with your last post.

>>>For me seeing dimensions is just the same as seeing space.>If an object occupies a certain amount of space, you see a 2-d projection of the space it occupies.>>a dimension curls up into an object>the extra 6 dimensions curl up into particles
