I have read a few articles lately that got me thinking. Some of the articles dealt with things such as: a fourth dimension soon to be revealed; humans having a predisposition to believe in the supernatural; string theory (and the possibility of 11 dimensions or more). These articles lead me to a book called Flatland (written in 1885, available on Google Books).
The price one pays for pursuing any profession, or calling, is an intimate knowledge of its ugly side. -- James Baldwin
