《平面国》,据说一本影响了爱因斯坦的小说

《平面国》这……不是一本关于设计的书!

有一个国家,名叫平面国,在这个国家里,一切都是平面的,最贫穷卑微的是等腰三角形,最高贵的是圆形,女人都是直线(直女?我以为只有直男),女人是最危险的,她们很容易把其他人扎死  °∇°。当平面国的人遭遇零维国、一维国、二维国和三维国的生命后,他们开始了大争论:平面国中的人启发一维国(就是一条直线)的人左右移动被斥为一派胡言;三维世界中的人启发平面国的人上下移动也从未成功;而零维国(就是一个点)的人干脆认为他就是整个世界。

《平面国》出自著名神学家、小说家埃德温·艾勃特(1838—1926),作者从神学和科学的双重角度将多维空间展示在读者面前,据说爱因斯坦也受到过这本书的影响重新认知维度……神学家在19世纪编纂了一部超有深度的科学小说, °(°ˊДˋ°) °!!

小说最终指明世界是有神的,也许神就来自高维度,只有现(投)身(影)到某个维度,才能在该维度被发现。主人公之一的“四边形”看到了“神”,神从高维现身接触低维,但绝大多数低维个体度不能理解高维,所以低维普遍都是否认神的存在,认为这是不可能的。很有意思的是,高维生物同样也否认他们世界有神,因为他们很难感知到更高的维度。

我理解科学和神学其实并不冲突,只是人类在一定阶段内对物质和精神互相依赖、转换的不同解释罢了。
