one-dimensional vs two-dimensional :

one dimensional or two dimensional

Once upon a time most folks knew that “three-dimensional” characters orideas were rounded, fleshed out, and complex and “two-dimensional” oneswere flat and uninteresting. It seems that the knowledge of basicgeometry has declined in recent years, because today we hearuninteresting characters and ideas described as “one-dimensional.”According to Euclid, no physical object can be one-dimensional (of course,according to modern physics, even two-dimensionality is only an abstractconcept). If you are still bothered by the notion that two dimensionsare one too many, just use “flat.”
