Bernadette Brady referred to the world that rejects astrology as "Flatland"; and the fable Flatland written by Edwin Abbot provides an excellent way of thinking about this issue. In Edwin Abbot's tale, beings that exist in two dimensions (as lines, circles, squares and so on) find their world being intruded upon by three-dimensional beings. These intrusions are incomprehensible; as a sphere passes through Flatland, for instance, it appears to the inhabitants as a circle that expands, shrinks and then disappears altogether. Their ability to make sense of the world is limited by the structure their minds impose upon experience.(page 195)
