My mistake, I should have said "a" instead of "the".
Sorry Dick.

Dick said "Any n-dimensional structure can be mapped
to a linear one dimensional structure". I say that it
is not possible to document complex multidimensional
(n-dimensional) systems using text - unless you assume
an unlimited amount of time and money (a case which I
don't even think about.)

If it where possible to efficienctly and effectively
document these systems with a linear tool (text), then
nobody would be pushing multidimensional models
because, becasuse for most people, me included, it is
easier to work with text.
