- n. Plural form of three-space.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
We shall do this particularly with reference to the different sections of an object obtained at any point by taking different perpendicular three-spaces.
It is not easy for us to imagine such pictures, and so we can attempt to get an impression of the shapes of objects by supposing that a three-dimensional being, a person like ourselves, could pass through a series of parallel three-spaces (three-dimensional spaces) and in each three-space examine that portion of the object which lies in this space, that section of the object.
Thake the three-spaces-*, should TWiki allow for the mistake of 1 extra / less space?
