I acknowledge in advance that some here may send up a red flag re my
citing of a post by Xah Lee.
The late Arthur Siegel mentioned him a ways back in this archive,
asking if I knew him (answer: not yet).
But then both Arthur and I have had our share of detractors, so it's
not my place, as a teapot, to call the kettle black.
(explaining the idiom).
PS: I see Xah really likes Abbott's 'Flatland', which I do as social
satire, but then I think it's been over-used to pump up certain brands
of shamanism within the math-physics community (yes, that's a
provocative way of putting it, which Juan rightly questioned -- did my
best to explain here):
