Is a shadow a three-dimensional object? I am proposing that we are 3 "objects" in one being. We are the light, the body and the shadow

A shadow is a 3d object, because we live in a 3d world right?

So that means they have, length, width, height, volume and mass?

And the body is just "shadow" or matter that reflects light, like a mirror, or the moon

  • Mar 8 2013: No , a shadow is the projection of a 3d object onto a plane. It has no thickness, just width and breadth. The projection of a n-dimensional object is always n-1 dimensions in size.
    The projection of a plane on a line is a point, the projection of a 3d object is a plane, the projection of a 4d object is a hypercube (in 3d). I've never figured out the mathematical proof for it but it seems a good hypothesis
