Taken together, they form a couple of accessible and charming explanations of geometry and physics for the curious non-mathematician. Flatland,imagines a two-dimensional world inhabited by sentient geometric shapes who think their planar world is all there is. But one Flatlander, a Square, discovers the existence of a third dimension and the limits of his worlds assumptions about reality and comes to understand the confusing problem of higher dimensions.
