I'm not disagreeing (or agreeing) about anything, with anybody. I'm mentioning a book.

Indeed you are mentioning a book. I don't think anyone disputes the text of that book or your summary of what it says.

It's just that it seems a little narrow in it's outlook, and not really an authority to be cited on dimensional musings. There was a follow-up book written in the 1970/80s (IIRC) that goes into this more rigorously - that would probably be better to cite. But google/amazon have let me down. Perhaps it was a magazine article - arggh, those little grey cells.

Even that book/article had a number of holes in it... not wormholes, mind.

It had some interesting asides on the design of doors and locks.
