Escaping Flatland

After reading Escaping Flatland by Tufte, it gave me a new perspective on all of the information I take in on a day to day basis and how I process it. Before reading this, I honestly never noticed that the majority of the information that I interact with is two-dimensional. This obviously includes social media but I never took in to account how this is true for most learning tools we use in school as well. For example, books, essays, pictures etc. The fact that most of the information we take in and learn from is two dimensional makes me wonder how limited the amount of information or the way we process it is.
