(The flat-lander could not watch a two dimensional projection, because two dimensions span the full of the space of his consciousness.) The flat-lander must be content to look along one direction in his two dimensional space and watch a projection of the process upon the line orthogonal to the direction of view. Differences along the direction of view are ignored in the projection, for all elements of the process along such a line of view (or a parallel line of view) are projected one on top of another---onto a point along the projection line. Needless to say, the flat-lander engineer will have a difficult time understanding the workings of the three dimensional engineer. Imagine now an engineer who works in the four dimensional space of positions and times, but is systematically ignoring the dimensions of life characterized by human desires, emotions, affections, etc. Such an engineer is viewing people as projections in much the same way as the flat-lander engineer---and will have corresponding difficulties understanding the way people behave. To view people along different parallel lines corresponds to ignoring different emotions as the emotions of the line of view---will not help. Projection lines do not cut across each other, they are parallel, and end on points in the projection; structure along projection lines does not show up in the projection. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
