We have no way of knowing, but yet here you are describing to us exactly how a flatlander precieves he's dimesnion.
How did yu come to know of this?
By imagination. That is how you have been told to view the flatlanders preseption of 2d.
That is how we learn. What prevents a flatlander to do the same about 3D?

You have to read more carefully. I never described how a Flatlander perceives his dimension. I said that whatever he conceives as the 3rd dimension
can never be close to the truth. Nor can we describe the perception of a Flatlander.
So even my understanding of Flatland is impossible, because I can not perceive a flatland without Height.
Nor can a Flatlander perceive 3D with height.
Just like the 4D cube "tesseract" , it is impossible to perceive in non 3-D terms. Impossible to imagine a 4D object in front of you. The best we can
do is see the shadow of a 4D cube..or a 2D image on a computer screen..hardly a substitute for real thing wouldn't you agree?
And a shadow of a 4D cube, doesn't come remotely close in communicating what the 4th dimension is.
I am saying that to dialog about a perception higher and more encompassing than your own, is pointless. This applies to everyone. Concepts and 3rd
dimensional understanding is not sufficient. All of the knowledge formed from a 3rd dimension perception is of no use, because the concept of Time,
space and form, can not go there.
Do you know how to communicate without needing the concepts of Time, Space and form? Is there a language void of these? A separate dictionary of
words, void of the reliance of Time, Space and Form? If you know of one, please tell.
