I am re-reading Michio Kaku's 'Hyperspace" published in the 90's (great book for layperson physics nerds) ... of course, he touches on Flatland in
it when trying to explain higher spatial dimensions... Mobius Strips... knots... etc.
And an incident from childhood came to mind where two girls were holding either end of a jump-rope with a girl jumping in the middle... the usual set
up... and the jumper tripped and fell... when they couldn't untangle her I looked and saw that the rope had squished through the jumper's shoelace
eyelets ... and it was still solid and unbroken, even with the heavy nylon rope squeezed through ...and the two others were still holding both ends of
that weird rope.
The only darned way I could explain it was that, somehow, that rope had slipped into a higher dimension, went 'through' that eyelet and then
dropped back into our normal (Ha!) 3-D space...
Add to that experiences with invisible intelligences and the (very) occasional person 'winking out' on the street in broad daylight, reports of
liminal areas where one can enter 'fairyland' or strange lands/times, and "other dimensions" becomes less sci-fi and more matter-of- fact.
Physics (String theory, actually) posits these other spacial dimensions (10 or 11) are nano scale and too tiny to matter in our macro world... I,
however, am not so sure...
But where you pulled out that orange piece from must be extra dimensional! I prefer the blues... and named orange because it seemed garish... but
it's quite pretty (took a long time, but finally got there).
