And moist lumber warps and that explains everything?

You dont understand what an analogy is. Use a dictionary for analogy and then reread.

Your belief that 2D does not exist is unfounded ignorance. You believe 3D exists, yes?

3D is inherently inclusive of 2D and 1D. 4th D is the volumetric diagonal ---at 45 degrees-- from vertexexial junction of XYZ aka abc in hyper-spatial mathematics, that Ive presented to you elsewhere and you ignore because of ego.

XY{ ab } = 90 degrees

XZ{ ac } = 90 degreees

YZ{ bc } = 90 degrees

........ad = 45 degrees

........bd = 45 degrees

........cd = 45 degrees

Get your self a copy of Micho Kakus book 'Hyperspace' and educate your self on spatial dimensions.

The 3D tetrahedron ---that you my not believe exists--- has 4 axial dimensions defined by four vertexes opposite to four triangular planes and when any one of the four vertexes attempts to pass through its diametrically opposite triangular opening, we have a subdivided 2D triangle { \Y/ | irrespective of whether you want to believe that.

That 3D, 3 right angled tetrahedron, is defined by XYZ when the other end of the XYZ are connected to each other.

And the volumetric 4th 'd' is the one of the four diametric axi of the previous stated 3D tetrahedron.

And this 4th 'd' when considered as one volumetric axi of the 3D tetrahedron attempts to **inside-out** itself, we have at least one of the fundamentally primary motions ---aka powers--- of Universe.

inside-out = 1 power

spin = 1 power

precession = 1 power

expand-contract = 1 power

torque = 1 power

orbit = 1 power ---reguires two vertexes, or 3D tetrahedra----.

1 + 1 = 2 is common sense

1 + 1 = 4 is synergetic rational, logical common sense

3 + 3 = 6 is common sense

3 + 3 = 12 is synergetic common sense.

That untreated pine lumber ---ex planar piece of plywood--- warps as result of absorbtion of moisture is may or may not be common sense, rational, logical yet it is a truth that many people have observed, even if they cannot explain the rational, logical common sense reasons of why.
