I understand this, but muh base 10 makes everything so much clearer. For example: 10.22 mm = 0.4024", imperial is just too confusing.

Convince US to go metric first, then we can talk about going global with the decimal times.

When you declared the Earth was square, you already made your 2nd statement. Now, if you said the Earth was a cube then redefined your statement as "flat" then it would indeed not be a cube but the intended 2 dimensional, 4 point square.

Cube structures are naturally occurring, therefore Earth is a cube:

While true, when you're talking "flat", that's typically a 2 dimensional look. Flat in a 3rd dimension still has the Z element (height).
1 dimension = a point in space (x)
2 dimension = connection of points in space (x, y)
3 dimension = connection of points in space with volume (x, y, z)
4 dimension = connection of points in space with volume and time (x, y, z, t)

What really ***** with this constant is Quantum Mechanics (which dictates I think 11 different "dimensions" that exist in our universe). Additionally, a static black hole for instance can either be a centralized point of infinite of 1 dimension, or the crazier concept of a spinning black hole has a "ringularity" which is still technically 1 dimension, but also "spinning".

Earth is round, but we are inside it.
