2D and 3D. Ha.

They aren't really LAWS of physics. They're more like... suggestions.

I just got what dimensions the extra-dimensional beings came from: the second and third. That's hilarious.

But wait... If that's true, then what dimension is the rest of the comic in? the second-and-a-half dimension?

NOTHING MAKES SENSE ANYMORE!

(P.S. - They were hiding in the books. Awesome.)

Actually, the rest of the comic would be in three-dimensional space. The extra-dimensional beings would be from the 2'nd and 4'th dimensions.

Think of it this way: Normally, when an artist draws something, he is projecting a 3-D image onto a 2-D medium. Now, what are you going to do if you want to project a 4-D image into a similar format? Why, project the 4-D image onto a 3-D medium, of course! (True, it's physically a 2-D medium, but with 3-D glasses, it becomes a 3-D medium.)

For another example of this being done, check out this animated, rotating 3-D projection of a hypercube. (Warning- Java is required. 3-D glasses can be used, but you can also just cross your eyes if you know how to view stereoscopic 'Magic-Eye'-type images. Click the 'Stereo' button to cycle through the modes.)

Ah. I think I got it.

...Dang, Watson's not here to comment.
