What if we have 100 dimensions? Turns out that only 0.0027% of people (about 800 people in the US) would be normal.
Allison, I will toss in my 5 cents as a scientist.

Lorenzo, thank you so much for taking the time to write.

I love it! Your reduction of ‘normal’ across multiple axes is as gorgeous as it is true. ‘Normal’, as it is used, always involves reducing the person to a (meaningless) single dimension…

It is such a pity that belief is so unresponsive to science, but so it has always been.

❤ Allison
