In this novella, sapient and motile polygons & circles inhabit a two-dimensional world. Late in the story, a sapient sphere presents itself to the two-dimensional characters. As it passes through the plane, the 2-D characters see the sphere as the edge of a circle that appears out of nowhere, grows larger then smaller, and then disappears.

In modern terms, we have three-dimensional atoms interacting with two-dimensional atoms.

Sometimes I write about my own original superheroes for my own amusement. One of my characters has the power to take on the characteristics of a four-dimensional creature. Obviously, I could make a comic-book character any way I wanted to, given the prevalence of pseudoscience in the genre. (Arc-reactors, anyone?) But I would like to write this character with as little handwaving as possible.

So, my question should read "Is it possible for atoms that have different numbers of spatial dimensions to interact, assuming that spaces with different numbers of dimensions can intersect each other?

Also, when my character switches from 3-D to 4-D, what happens to his/her/its size?
