Thanks for your kind words about Imagining the Tenth Dimension, John. It's been fascinating watching people's reactions to this.

If you type tenth dimension faq into google you'll find a blog entry linking to the many tangents I'm exploring.
I have posted a link to your entry in my Interesting Links section at the tenth dimension blog.
