[quote="Sciscitor"]Just an attempt to resolve the dimensionality puzzle.
Some thoughts on the universe choices
Wouldn't gravity fall off by distance rather than distance squared?
The area near the fluid and dike looked 2d.
Unrelated to dimensionality: The zoom into the trebuchet shows that the pixel is not the elementary particle in the universe. (Or, the zoom in would be pixelated.)
There was much discussion about the dike holding back the water, and it's need to be very long. But, when I have built such things to save my own constructions I have built them around the castle. This circular wall would be best drawn the way it was in the OTC.
Amusing physics choice, (And my understanding is that 17 or so of the dimensions required for string theory are like this.) But, not gratifying to me.
Also, how could we see the image, the light couldn't get to where we are standing. (Or, they have a universe where entropy is an even bigger bitch than we expect.)
Crossection of a 3D world
This is mostly the one I like. But not in the sense of cutting through the world with a plane, and only seeing what is in that plane.
The world is clearly 3d. Many arguments have been made for this, and I agree with them.
We are clearly not seeing the entirety of the world. The shoreline can't simply be infinitely long and straight and perfectly lined up behind what we see. etc.
Perhaps the universe is 2d at the right, turning 3d left of the dike. (That's why megan didn't just make the dike bigger, she ran out of 2d building material.)
I think the universe is 3d, but some things are hidden in ways we do not yet comprehend.
I agree, what fun is this. I like to think Randall would have rules. Even if he would not share with us.
