Oppositions are simple line segments, while governments are polygons with various no. of sides. Oppositions consists of lines and when a line is coming towards an observer in a two dimension world, his body appears merely a point and a point is a sole inhabitant, monarch and universe in one. The narrator is a humble square (Central Govt.), a member of social caste of gentlemen and professionals in a society of geometric figures, who guides us through
some of the implications of life in two dimension world. The square has a dream about a visit to a one dimensional world (Line Land) which is inhabited by lustrous points. He attempts to convince realm’s
ignorant monarch of a second dimension but finds it difficult to make him see outside of his eternally straight ...view middle of the document...

Square is then visited by three dimensional SPHERE, which he cannot comprehend until he sees “Space land” for himself. The sphere then visits level-land at the turn of each millennium to introduce new apostle to the idea of a third dimension in the hope of eventually educating the population of level-land of existence of space land. Of course, square requires some assistance from sphere in terms of money, training of personnel, materials and even to some extent technology. Also, this friendship is going to produce self-reliance between the two.
After the square’s mind is opened to new dimension, he tries to convince the sphere of theoretical possibility of the existence of higher dimensions. Offended by this presumption and incapable of comprehending other dimensions, the sphere returns his students to level-land in disgrace.
The square then has a dream in which sphere visits him again, this time to introduce him to “POINT-LAND”. He said that 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. So far as monarch understands them at all, he accepts them as his own – for he cannot conceive of any other except himself- and plumes himself upon the variety of its thought as an instance of creative power. So, he leave this God of point-land to the ignorant fruition of his omnipresence and omniscience.
The square recognizes the connection between the ignorance of the monarchs of point-land and line-land with his own (and the sphere’s) previous ignorance of the existence of other higher dimension.
Once returned to level-land, the square finds it difficult to convince anyone of space-land’s existence, especially after official decrees are announced. And he remained convincing others of the existence of higher dimensions to his brothers for rest of his life in the hope that one day his level-land would also
emulate higher dimensions.
