Dimensions - Exploring Flatland

answer section


How would a Flatlander eat/digest food?


A digestive tract made out of two parallel straight lines would be deadly for a Flatlander. The digestive tract would divide the Flatlander's body into three parts: the digestive tract itself, the body to left of the digestive tract, the body to the right of the digestive tract. These pieces either need to be held together with magnets or some similar objects, or the digestive tract must be made out of lines which hold themselves together. Instead of straight lines, a combination of U, C, or similar shapes would hold the Flatlanders together.
