Stoke's Theorem Problem?

    Stokes Theorem Problem?

    How can Stokes Theorem be used describe a succession of 2 dimensional
    surfaces, all causally connected? The surfaces would all be closed
    geometric forms. An example would be the 2 dimensional surface of a 3
    dimensional sphere. The the successive surfaces would be iterations
    from previous outer surfaces, where the next surface is "inside" or
    projected inwardly becoming an inner shell, from the larger previous
    iteration, and the future iteration would be projected outwardly to
    the outer shells. The past and future would be perfectly symmetrical
    and interchangeable. The past could be the inward surfaces projected
    outwardly also. There would be no x-y plane to use as an outside
    reference though. At most, the x-y plane would be equilateral
    dissections of the n-dimensional surfaces. How can it be done?
