As a satire Flatland offered pointed observations on the social hierarchy of Victorian culture However the novella s more enduring contribution is its examination of dimensions in a foreword to one of the many publications of the novella noted science writer Isaac Asimov described Flatland as The best introduction one can find into the manner of perceiving dimensions As such the novella is still popular amongst mathematics physics and computer science students .

The story is about a two dimensional world referred to as Flatland The unnamed narrator a humble square the social caste of gentlemen and professionals guides us through some of the implications of life in two dimensions The Square has a dream about a visit to a one dimensional world Lineland and attempts to convince the realm s ignorant monarch of a second dimension but finds that it is essentially impossible to make him see outside of his eternally straight line .

The narrator is then visited by a three dimensional sphere which he cannot comprehend until he sees Spaceland for himself This sphere who remains nameless visits Flatland at the turn of each millennium to introduce a new apostle to the idea of a third dimension in the hopes of eventually educating the population of Flatland of the existence of Spaceland From the safety of Spaceland they are able to observe the leaders of Flatland secretly acknowledging the existence of the sphere and prescribing the silencing of anyone found preaching the truth of Spaceland and the third dimension After this proclamation is made many witnesses are massacred or imprisoned according to caste .

After the Square s mind is opened to new dimensions he tries to convince the Sphere of the theoretical possibility of the existence of a fourth and fifth and sixth spatial dimension Offended by this presumption and incapable of comprehending other dimensions the Sphere returns his student to Flatland in disgrace .

He then has a dream in which the Sphere visits him again this time to introduce him to Pointland The point sole inhabitant monarch and universe in one perceives any attempt at communicating with him as simply being a thought originating in his own mind cf Solipsism .

The Square recognizes the connection between the ignorance of the monarchs of Pointland and Lineland with his own and the Sphere s previous ignorance of the existence of other dimensions .

Once returned to Flatland the Square finds it difficult to convince anyone of Spaceland s existence especially after official decrees are announced anyone preaching the lies of three dimensions will be imprisoned or executed depending on caste Eventually the Square himself is imprisoned for just this reason by Edwin A. Abbott
