That's true. But dimensions ARE couldrons. D1 belongs to D2 etc. to D12. And the smallest atoms of reality? Those combining both time and matter? Quarks? Bossoms? Thaums? This is the core of magic, dimensions are like baskets keeping them together. And those atoms mixing all the time naturally, organising into the larger structures.
I think I read one of them, but it was like 12-14 years ago, so I can't really tell. Technically, a 5D creature could pick any body, shape or shade, because it ISN'T created from atoms. Or more likely- it is created from various 4D objects, so there's no difference between time and the matter to him.
(i asked him why did he say "bitch" and "fuck you". he apologised)As we walk, the night gets beautiful. There's breeze in the air, smell of trees and flowers, a million stars in the sky and everywhere is quiet. I look up and see a shooting star." Look, a shooting star! Make a wish and it'll come true."
It's not just some simple atom bending from a high school 3D magic theory, is it? I used to have classes with the unicorns back in 10th grade, but nobody was assuming a safe shape-shifting on the atom level can really exist- for the same reason you can't just cut somebody's head off and then stick it again and hope it will work somehow.
