I was thinking so too, but then 3D objects bump into one another because
they have a side to bump with, i.e. when cubes bump, they do so using their
"z-axis". But in a 2D world without conception of volume, might they simply
intersect? And if they do, and they happened to have colours, what would the
intersection appear like? A blend of the two colours?
