Yes, and if a flatlander were to walk on it, the flatlander would
eventually reverse his/her internal organs.

As for a regular strip with ends connected into a circle, imagine yourself
a flatlander, who will see that strip (his/her world) as one long flat
distance, and who cannot discern the curve in the paper. The flatlander
looking "straight ahead" and "straight behind" will see many repetions of

Everything that is within our ability to sense are clues. There's no way
we can grasp the Unknowable. And yet somehow, we know It in our heart.
