Flatland Multiverse

Flatland Multiverse is a mash up of the concepts of Flatland and the Multiverse. If you've read the book Flatland by Edwin Abbott then you are aware of the premise of a universe limited to two dimensions: length and width. In Flatland Abbott writes of this world of only two dimensions as a means of introducing the concepts of relativity and spatial dimensionality.

If you follow cosmology, you should be aware of the concept of the multiverse - an aspect of string theory that opens up the mathematical possibility of the simultaneous existence of an infinity of universes - which would in effect reduce the significance of our own universe from being all there is to being just another grain of sand on a beach of universes.

In Flatland Multiverse, I've combined the idea of a two dimensional universe with that of a multiplicity of universes. Flatland Multiverse is a visualization of such a multiverse as viewed by a being on a higher plain of existence.

“I call our world Flatland, not because we call it so, but to make its nature clearer to you, my happy readers, who are privileged to live in Space.”

“Although popularly everyone called a Circle is deemed a Circle, yet among the better educated Classes it is known that no Circle is really a Circle, but only a Polygon with a very large number of very small sides.”

“Behold yon miserable creature. That Point is a Being like ourselves, but confined to the non-dimensional Gulf. He is himself his own World, his own Universe; of any other than himself he can form no conception; he knows not Length, nor Breadth, nor Height, for he has had no experience of them; he has no cognizance even of the number Two; nor has he a thought of Plurality; for he is himself his One and All, being really Nothing.”

Edwin A. Abbott, Flatland
