I have a question about my Physics Stack Exchange post: What is wrong about the following reasoning concerning hypersphere cosmology?

I was wondering why it is put on hold. It is honestly not clear to me.

Your post is currently on hold because it is incomprehensible what the reasoning is supposed to be.

Taking an analogy with the 2-sphere, you seem to be claiming that someone moving along the surface of the Earth between the two points moves a greater distance than the distance between the two points "we measure". But if we were truly creatures confined to the surface (like we would be in the case where three-dimensional space is a hypersphere), we would measure the distance along the surface, so there is no discrepancy.

  • $\begingroup$ Just because you don't understand the subject doesn't mean the question is incomprehensible. Why not just let people answer that do understand? $\endgroup$ – 魔大农 Feb 16 '19 at 16:59

    $\begingroup$ As it is clear that the community here is not to your standard it would be useful for all of you took your debate elsewhere. $\endgroup$ – ZeroTheHero Feb 16 '19 at 20:52
