...we know that 3^2 , or 9, represents the number of square inches in a Square whose side is 3 inches long.
But you have been teaching me to raise numbers to the third power; I suppose 3^3 must mean something in Geometry; what does it mean?
Nothing at all... not at least in Geometry; for Geometry has only Two Dimensions.

Well, then, if a Point by moving 3 inches, makes a Line of 3 inches... and if a straight Line of 3 inches, moving parallel to itself, makes a Square of 3 inches every way, represented by 3^2; it must be that a Square of 3 inches every way, moving somehow parallel to itself (but I don't see how) must make something else (but I don't se what) of 3 inches every way - and this must be represented by 3^3.
Go to bed... if you would talk less nonsense, you would remember more sense.
