The paradox of space and paradoxical perception


Our perception of space has a lot of built-in ambiguity and uncertainty.

We have discovered this through art, mathematics, psychology, biology and philosophy,

Depth becomes length becomes height, becomes width. In digital environments we have the ability to multiply conceptual space infinitely within a flat surface. The moment we build 3-dimensional spaces that are skinned with digital space we will introduce an exponential multiplication of space.

We should expect paradoxical perception, ambiguity, and spatial uncertainty to be amplified.
