Topic: To live was then in itself a delight, because living implied seeing.

My two children were born looking around with wide eyes.
I guess the question of "seeing the real world" not only depends on physical aspects (age, senses) but also mentally.
And seeing the real world not always it´s a delight. Sometimes it´s better to close the eyes.

On the other hand, the story of Flatland does not fit reality: each person is unique and being not only depends on heredity. It depends on your personal development, sense and sensibility.
An icosahedron can be a child of an isosceles triangle as well.

Edwin Abbott (1838-1926)



The above quote comes from the mathematical and religious allegory Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions--1884. Section 8--Of the Ancient Practice of Painting.





Writing pseudonymously as "A Square",[1] Abbott used the fictional two-dimensional world of Flatland to offer pointed observations on the social hierarchy of Victorian culture. However, the novella's more enduring contribution is its examination of dimensions, for which the novella is still popular amongst mathematics, physics, and computer science students.

When all others had succumbed to the fascinations of corporal decoration, the Priests and the Women alone still remained pure from the pollution of paint.
Immoral, licentious, anarchical, unscientific — call them by what names you will — yet, from an aesthetic point of view, those ancient days of the Colour Revolt were the glorious childhood of Art in Flatland — a childhood, alas, that never ripened into manhood, nor even reached the blossom of youth. To live was then in itself a delight, because living implied seeing.



Flatland--Overview


I can say after reading his two-dimensional story occupied by geometric figures, that "we as women are considered "simple line-segments, who are required by law to sound a peace-cry as we walk" is interesting to say the least. Silenced

Or as he puts it >>>>> "If our highly pointed Triangles of the Soldier class are formidable, it may be readily inferred that far more formidable are our Women. For if a Soldier is a wedge, a Woman is a needle; being, so to speak, ALL point, at least at the two extremities. Add to this the power of making herself practically invisible at will, and you will perceive that a Female, in Flatland, is a creature by no means to be trifled with. "


Please thank Wikiquotes for the quote in context and Wikipedia for the additional information on Flatland.

They say that ignorance of the law is no excuse for non-compliance. I disagree with that because
all we know that law can be interpreted in different ways (money knows it too),
and even judges and politics are human like the ignorants, liars, etc, but the first ones make laws and, of course, they know them and take benefit of it, or are bad for society.
So, who are more damnable?
