Panda Inside

(no subject)

Hmm, I was thinking, and it occurred to me that since a cube is a 3-dimensional, and a plane is 2-dimensional, then it would follow that a line is 1-dimensional, and that a point is a zero-dimensional object. If something has no dimension, does it really exist? If it doesn't exist, that's scary, because all 3-dimensional objects are based on points when you get right down to it. Example: Cube formed by 6 planes each formed by 4 lines each formed by 2 points. Without points, do the lines exist? No. Without lines, do the planes exist? No. Without the planes, does the cube exist? No. Sure, people are much more complex than cubes, but we're still 3-dimensional objects. Odd...
