Fragment of a discussion from Talk:India
I visited Khajuraho back in 1967. A truly magical place. Phil
Dear Phil; I was puzzled last morning after only one and a half hour of sleep.
- Why is such an object placed in a temple ( at the entrance of a temple as far as I know ) ?
- Today we see a brick and believe it does not move. But the square is not a brick. It moves like all the deities presented in the statues.
- I was puzzled about the dimensions of the square. We see two main dimensions along which the square can shift. But at every cell one can imagine also four other curled dimensions (formed by the neighbour 2x2 sub-squares, which can be transformed in rows and/or columns) . Curled dimensions are mentioned at string theory ( http://www.google.com/search?num=100&q=%22string+theory%22 ) . Transitions along such dimensions are not commutative. But why to stop at six dimensions because we thing that we need to see adjacent cells to define a path . There are 384 aspects / rearrangements of this hyper symmetric, ultra homogeneous object. Maybe the dimensions are only in our mind. "m'et vern modne." - We get strange.
