Imagine you were s two dimensional creature in a two dimensional plane. Width and length only, no concept of height. Let's say your world is like a piece of paper. Then, one day, a three dimensional create, 6 year old Thomas from Swindon, pushes s pencil through your piece of paper, your world. You have no concept of up or down. All you can discern is some disturbance in your field. Wouldn't that be spooky!

I'd have to say no, based on my experience in a three-dimensional world, where crazy stuff happens all the time and it isn't spooky.

Quite agree Kathleen. Perhaps I should have written exciting, but I guess it depends on the individual's perceptionsmile008.gif

When I am trapped there I will send you a 2D postcard. Sex will be impossible for starters.

Sounds like a Dr Who episode but in reverse...
The 2d people stopped by.

It would be a source for curiosity wondering about where that bit of territory went. Because there is no up or down it wouldn't be a hole, just a circular piece of the plane I occupied would no longer be there. I suppose it would take on considerably more importance if that hole were punched where I happened to be. By the way, what have you been smoking?

I recommend Edwin Abbott Abbott's Flatland and Ian Stewart's Flatterland - I think you'd like them.
