_Flatland : A Romance of Many Dimensions/Sphereland : A Fantasy About  
Curved Spaces and an Expanding Universe_/2 Books in 1 Volume (Everyday 
by Edwin A. Abbott, Dionys Burger, Isaac Asimov 
Paperback 2 Bks in 1 edition (January 1994) 
HarperCollins (paper); ISBN: 0062732765 ; Dimensions (in inches): 0.87 x 
7.99 x 5.33  
Unless you're a mathematician, the chances of you reading any novels about 
geometry are  probably slender. But if you read only two in your life, these 
are the ones. Taken together, they form a couple of accessible and charming 
explanations of geometry and physics for the curious non-mathematician. 
Flatland, which is also available under separate cover, was published in 
1880 and 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 
world's assumptions about reality and comes to understand the confusing 
problem of higher dimensions. The book is also quite a  funny satire on 
society and class distinctions of Victorian England. The further 
mathematical fantasy, Sphereland, published 60 years later, revisits the 
world of Flatland in time to explore the mind-bending theories created 
by Albert Einstein, whose work so completely altered the scientific 
understanding of space, time, and matter. Among Einstein's many challenges 
to common sense were the ideas of curved space, an expanding universe and 
the fact that light does not travel in a straight line. Without use of the 
mathematical formulae that bar most non-scientists from an understanding of 
Einstein's theories, Sphereland gives lay readers ways to start 
comprehending these confusing but fundamental questions of our reality. 
Book Description  
Over a hundred years ago, Edwin A.  Abbott wrote a mathematical adventure 
set in a world on one plane, populated by a hierarchical society of regular 
geometrical figures--who think and speak and have all too human emotions. 
Since then _Flatland_ has fascinated generations of readers, becoming a 
perennial science-fiction favorite. By imagining the contact of beings from 
different dimensions, the author fully exploited the power of the analogy 
between the limitations of humans and those of his two-dimensional 
characters. A first-rate fictional guide to the concepts of relativity and 
multiple dimensions of space, the book also will appeal to those who are 
interested in computer graphics. This field, which literally makes higher 
dimensions seeable, has aroused a new interest in visualization. We can now 
manipulate objects in four dimensions and observe their three- dimensional 
slices tumbling on the computer screen. But how do we interpret these 
images? In his introduction to the volume, Thomas Banchoff points out that 
there is no better start on the problem of  understanding higher-dimensional 
slicing phenomena than reading this classic novel of the Victorian era.

Parable of the Gemstone 
To understand the intense controversy surrounding superstring theory, think 
of the following parable. 
Imagine that, at the beginning of time, there was once a beautiful, 
glittering gemstone. Its perfect symmetries and harmonies were a sight to 
behold. However, it possessed a tiny flaw and became unstable, eventually 
exploding into thousands of tiny pieces. Imagine that the fragments of the 
gemstone rained down on a flat, two-dimensional world, called Flatland, 
where there lived a mythical race of beings called Flatlanders. 
These Flatlanders were intrigued by the beauty of the fragments, which could 
be found scattered all over Flatland. The scientists of Flatland postulated 
that these fragments must have come from a crystal of unimaginable beauty 
that shattered in a titanic Big Bang.  They then decided to embark upon a 
noble quest, to reassemble all these pieces of the gemstone. 
After 2,000 years of labor by the finest minds of Flatland, they were 
finally able to fit many, but certainly not all, of the fragments together 
into two chunks. The first chunk was called the "quantum," and the second 
chunk was called "relativity." 
Although they Flatlanders were rightfully proud of their progress, they were 
dismayed to find that these two chunks did not fit together. For half a 
century, the Flatlanders maneuvered these two chunks in all possible ways, 
and they still did not fit. 
Finally, some of the younger, more rebellious scientists suggested a 
heretical solution: perhaps these two chunks could fit together if they were 
moved in the third dimension. 
This immediatelyset off the greatest scientific controversy in years. The 
older scientists scoffed at this idea, because they didn't believe in the 
unseen third dimension. "What you can't measure doesn't exist," they 
Furthermore, even if the third dimension existed, one could calculate that 
the energy necessary to move the pieces up off Flatland would exceed all the 
energy available in Flatland. Thus, it was an untestable theory, the critics 
However, the younger scientists were undaunted. Using pure mathematics, they 
could show that these two chunks fit together if they were rotated and moved 
in the third dimension. The younger scientists claimed that the problem was 
therefore theoretical, rather than experimental. If one could completely 
solve the equations of the third dimension, then one could, in principle, 
fit these two chunks completely together and resolve the problem once and 
for all.  
We Are Not Smart Enough 
That is also the conclusion of today's superstring enthusiasts, that the 
fundamental problem is theoretical, not practical. The true problem is to 
solve the theory completely, and then compare it with present-day 
experimental data. The problem, therefore, is not in building gigantic atom 
smashers; the problem is being clever enough to solve the theory. 
Edward Witten, impressed by the vast new areas of mathematics opened up by 
the superstring theory, has said that the superstring theory represents 
"21th century physics that fell accidentally into the 20th century." This is 
because the superstring theory was discovered almost by accident. By the 
normal progression of science, we theoretical physicists might not have 
discovered the theory for another century. 
The superstring theory may very well be 21st century physics, but the 
bottleneck has been that 21st century mathematics has not yet been 
discovered. In other words, although the string equations are perfectly 
well-defined, no one is smart enough to solve them. 
This situation is not entirely new to the history of physics.  When Newton 
first discovered the universal law of gravitation  at the age of 23, he was 
unable to solve his equation because the mathematics of the 17th century was 
too primitive. He then labored over the next 20 years to develop a new 
mathematical formalism (calculus) which was powerful enough to solve his 
universal law of gravitation. 
Similarly, the fundamental problem facing the superstring theory is 
theoretical. If we could only sharpen our analytical skills and develop more 
powerful mathematical tools, like Newton before us, perhaps we could solve 
the theory and end the controversy. 
Ironically, the superstring equations stand before us in perfectly 
well-defined form, yet we are too primitive to understand why they work so 
well and too dim witted to solve them. The search for the theory of the 
universe is perhaps finally entering its last phase, awaiting the birth of a 
new mathematics powerful enough to solve it. 
Imagine a child gazing at a TV set. The images and stories conveyed on the 
screen are easily understood by the child, yet the electronic wizardry 
inside the TV set is beyond the child's ken. We physicists are like this 
child, gazing in wonder at the mathematical sophistication and elegance of 
the superstring equations and awed by its power. However, like this child, 
we do not understand why the superstring theory works. 
In conclusion, perhaps some of the readers will be inspired by this story to 
read every book in their libraries about the superstring theory. Perhaps 
some of the young readers of this article will be the ones to complete this 
quest for the Theory of the Universe, begun so many years ago by Einstein.

13 January 2002, 13:13 pm 
On 12/12 at 12:12 hours, the Ultraviolet Ray, activated on 11/11 to assist 
us to take off our cuirasses and reducing our ego and personal importance to 
the minimum, will open the way to the Ruby Ray until its transformation into 
the Golden-Silver-Pearly Ray, that is, the Ray of Pachamama, of Mother Mary, 
which will be directed straight to Planet Gaia. GAIA is the name of the 
being that lives into the body of planet Earth. 12/12 is the date of the 
beginning of the falling of the Golden-Silver-Pearly Ray during one month, 
until the 13 January 2002, at 13:13, as well as the beginning of the Age of 
the Feminine. 
Beloved Love, Light and Earth workers, 
We offer now the final meditation of this Elohim Gateway activation, GAIA 
LOVE DAY for 13:13 pm on 13 January 2002. 
We ask all to gather in sacred circle upon the earth this day to assist 
Beloved Divine Earth Mother Gaia to complete her vibrational shift into the 
higher resonance.  All may begin by creating a beautiful Earth altar within 
their hearts or in a place upon the earth that calls.  Ground and earth 
one's being into the core of Gaia, her Beloved Heart and breathe up the 
rainbow pink silver light of her heart through all one's chakras, connecting 
then to Source through the central sun Alcyone and central moon Maldek. 
Call now to Beloved God, the Goddess, Gaia, all Earth spirits and the 
company of the heavenly realms in invocation, to join one in circle. 
Breathing deeply now, connecting one's body fully with the body of Gaia, 
beginning to move slowly and sounding the mantra GAIA MA until one feels 
one's body merged with her. See before you or in the centre of your circle a 
glowing, pulsating, golden rainbow heart, the One heart of All That IS upon 
this planet and send a ray from your heart connecting to this heart, 
expanding one's heart, allowing it to grow and grow and grow until it 
encompasses the entire Earth. 
Each being gathered may offer songs, words of love, gratitude, blessings and 
peace to Gaia and all her kingdoms, the crystalline, elemental, deva, plant, 
rock, animal, angelic earth, inner earth, faerie, aquatic, nature spirits 
for their unconditional love over eons of time. 
Visualise now from within the chalice of one's holy heart flame, pink, peach 
and opalescent light tinged with rainbow gold and silver, flow out to every 
heart upon the planet, connecting in one enormous matrix of Divine Love. 
Breathe now with this pulsating matrix as the new encodements from Source 
are brought forth flowing through Gaia's chakra, meridian, leiline system. 
Hold this visualisation until one feels a completion with this. 
Find within the heart a way of completion through celebration in 
gratefulness to Earth Mother, a love song to the ocean, a mountain, the 
birds, dance, play with Gaia and the earth spirits, go for an earth walk in 
honour of the sacred environment of earth, plant flowers, a tree, knowing 
that all upon the earth and beyond celebrates with you. 
Our love and gratitude flows to the many hearts who join us at these 
activation times in acknowledgment of the divine service and love all offer 
to the soul family of humanity, to Mother Gaia and her kingdoms and to 
Blessings of Divine Love on each of our journeys into the One Heart, 
Amaya, One of Twelve of ASCEND.
