List of Lame States
Living in the Midwest and missing my Northeast life, I have compiled a list of lame states, based on elevation:
Lame States, defined as having a natural high point lower than the tallest man-made building (Burj Khalifa, Dubai, 2722 ft) Florida (345 ft) Delaware (450 ft) Louisiana (535 ft) Mississippi (806 ft) Rhode Island (812 ft) Illinois (1235 ft) Indiana (1257 ft) Ohio (1549 ft) Iowa (1670 ft) Missouri (1772 ft) New Jersey (1803 ft) Wisconsin (1951 ft) Michigan (1971 ft) Minnesota (2301 ft) Connecticut (2380 ft) Alabama (2405 ft) Of these, three have the distinction of having a natural high point lower than the tallest man-made building in the state. Lamest States Illinois (Willis Tower, 1729 ft, 494 ft taller than the natural high point) Florida (Panorama Tower, 868 ft, 523 ft taller than the natural high point) Louisiana (One Shell Square, 697 ft, 162 ft taller than the natural high point)

Boundaries of Earth
By Arjuwan Lakkdawala
Ink in the Internet
Ever wondered about the true scale, context, and dynamics of our spatial geography?
The world was once borderless, then civilizations, countries, came to be and borders were made.
In those boundaries there are mountains, hills, valleys, steep slopes, clear straight roads, etc.
Till now this was sufficient information to make up the average person’s knowledge of earth’s geography.
However, mankind is embarking on living wholly in the third dimension.
Space exploration missions, and commercializing travel in lower space orbit, and even making “space hotels” with possibly artificial gravity.
Is going to fundamentally change our perception of the dimensions we have inhabited and the higher dimensions humanity might soon have casual access to.
To get to my point let’s visualize earth first on a superficial level.
Think Flat Earthers, in their flat earth theory we live on a disc shaped earth, and the spherical earth scientists speak of is a conspiracy.
It appears Flat Earthers have never looked at every single planet and star visible to us. Each of which is spherical. Why would earth be different?
They would have had little argument to their “Flat” theory if instead of earth they had said GALAXIES are flat disc shaped.
Ironically, we live on a round earth in a flat galaxy.
Now that we have established earth on a superficial level looks flat but is not. Imagine it again this time with the invisible dynamics that holds us on earth – Gravity.
Think Albert Einstein – Theories of Special and General Relativity.
The late Astronomer Carl Sagan, had once demonstrated in a video the connection with dimensions and gravity with the story of ‘Flatland’ a book by Edwin Abbott, a Victorian scholar.
In Flatland shapes live in two dimensions. They have length and width but no height and are absolutely flat.
As Sagan showed when an apple (a spherical object) from the third dimension (space or anywhere with height) descended into Flatland, the flat shapes over there could only perceive flat prints made from the apple’s landing parts.
Sagan made the parallel between us living on earth finding it difficult to visualize it as round, when everything looks flat, because we cannot perceive the whole earth.
In the universe the earth’s first picture taken from a distant satellite as Carl Sagan described was a humbling experience, to see earth looking no bigger than a blue dot.
However, unlike the Flatelanders we do have height and can get into planes and even space. This making us able to inhabit the third dimensions wholly.
Einstein had classified ‘time’ as a fourth dimension. Saying that if we want to go somewhere we travel in time forward and of course in our geological space.
Astro Physicist Neil Degrasse Tyson says If you want to meet someone somewhere you have to give them location coordinates (length, width, 2 dimensions – 3rd dimension height coordinate if it’s a building, and the fourth dimension ‘time’) to meet up at.
So do we now understand our three dimensions at least? Can we see the bigger picture?
What about gravity? What about micro dimensions?
Theoretical Physicist Brian Greene has spoken often about dimensions and the different shapes they exist in.
Interestingly, the premise of String Theory raises a rather unusual question…So history repeats itself? Does the universe repeat itself too?
Let me explain: Every time they split a particle, they find it to contain another particle. Or particles. The highly sophisticated technology we presently have cannot split quarks – tiniest particles. So there is a theory (String Theory) are there yet even tinier particles in quarks or is there a filament that vibrates into different shapes, producing different particles.
I draw a parallel between the splitting of particles and our body in the universe – like particles every planet and star is round, they are in motion, they have some form of energy. Compared to the universe we are tiny like the particles in atoms. So could it be that the universe infinitely contains…. spheres within spheres… within spheres…within spheres? But galaxies are flat clusters in the infinite vastness of space. Could this vastness really be the shapeless fourth dimension? Apart from time. Could there be some giant unknown shaped being looking at the flat galaxies?
So dear readers let’s stop here and go back to earth and its immediate boundary into space.
Remember the hills, mountains, slopes, I mentioned within earthy boundaries, they exist in space too in a sense – it’s Einstien’s Field Equations.
The variation in gravity depends on the flow of time (light - not the 4th dimension kind of time. Think atomic clocks) and the mass it interacts with. This produces invisible valleys, slopes, with outer shapes like mountains or hills. These are Non-Euclidean shapes and need calculus to calculate the area within them.
Physics is clearly the new frontier with space exploration and commercialization of the space industry.
An unfair disadvantage to brilliant young minds is to not teach Albert Einstein’s theories with Sir Isaac Newton’s version of gravity.
The sun which is light and not mass like rocks or planets is holding the planets in our solar system in steady motion. Space or gravity is in General Relativity described as a “fabric” even light bends in this fabric as it does in water. Planets are in orbit in the fabric.
Could it be that light on the quantum level like the connection of particles in quantum entanglement interact with mass of the planets to make this fabric?

“‘Behold yon miserable creature. That point is a being like ourselves, but confined to the non-dimensional Gulf. He is himself his own World, his own Universe; of any other than himself he can form no conception; he knows not Length, not Breadth, nor Height, for he has had no experience of them; he has no cognizance even if the number Two; nor has a thought of Plurality; for he is himself his One and All, being really Nothing. Yet mark his perfect self-contentment, and hence learn this lesson, that to be self centered is to be vile and ignorant, and to aspire is better than to be blindly and impotently happy.’”

alternate realities collide!!!!!!
1. Getting to have a relaxed(?) conversation with your crush!... sorta! 2. There can only be one. 3. Different definitions of “capture”... 4. joaje
ALSO NAME REVEAL-ISH!! iys!Ford’s name is Ford Pinacle and iys!Bill’s name is William (Bill) Cypress!! they are silly
Bill’s human design credit to @vasilisk-vd

@vasilisk-vd​ and i made an au.....
It’s called the In Your Shoes au and it’s basically just- “What if Bill was the researcher and Ford was the dream demon?” Above we have a demon reference, human reference, and a tumblr sexyman at the top.
go look at Basil’s account for Bill’s design >:)
if you have any questions...... we are more than happy to elaborate.... just send em to my inbox :]

Hello!
Hello! I am A. Square. I am fronting for the first time in a while. I am a fictive from the book Flatland by Edwin Abbott Abbott. I don’t know that much about myself yet. I am quite new, and I have not had time to learn about myself. I really like ducks. I want to feed ducks sometimes. that is hard for us right now, but someday I will do that. I can see the host’s memories of feeding ducks, and it looks fun. I really like colours. I like math, I find it fascinating. I really like the world. it is beautiful. but it does scare me. I don’t understand it. it might be worth the risk, though? I think I will front more. The host can’t stop me. he is still here, though farther from front than normal. she refuses to let go of the front, so he is always co-fronting with us whenever she can. (sometimes he doesn’t front though, but she can’t remember that). The host wants to control everything, but this is my body too. I get to do what I want. I wish I was a singlet, honestly. I don’t want to integrate or anything really, but I wish I could have my own body or something. I think the host’s outlook on things is flawed. It comes from the perspective of a host, which makes sense because he is one, but the is a kind of (privilege isn’t the right word, but I can’t find a better one.)  she ignores our perspective. I empathize with him more than some of the others do, but I am starting to realize that I was wrong in the way I thought about her. he has made mistakes. he is far from perfect. I am real. I exist. I am not imaginary. I don’t know if anyone will read this, but if you are, hello.
