Re: I was wondering...
I'm orthagonal. Everyone is wrong.
Self-contradictory. How could anyone be wrong if every axis is right?
Actually, I was angling for saying "angle" instead of "axis".
 
ABE:
Explanation for the non-mathematical minded.
Many coördinate systems are orthogonal, which means that each axis is at right angles to all the others.
For example, in a 2D space, the X and Y axes are at right angles (90°) to each other. In a 3D space, you add a Z axis which is at right angles to both the X and the Y axes. In nD space (for any integer value of n) each axis is at right angles to all the others even though our limited minds are incapable of visualizing that.

I include myself in "everyone" and thus remain confidently tentative.
Ralph Waldo Emerson:
A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall. Speak what you think now in hard words, and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day.
Talking Heads:
It's scientific.
