tesseract is mentioned: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tesseract SIMPLY PUT: In math, a tesseract has Eucledian space, and Eucledian space (named after Euclid of Alexandria) can be modeled using Cartesian coordinates. What is Cartesian? Well, it is related to Descartes,and his ideas, or a Cartesian can be a follower of Descartes.
WHO was Descartes? A Catholic philosopher who made a connection between geometry and algebra, AND, he believed himself a devout Catholic. He believed that what separates humans from animals is that animals don’t have minds. He believed that animals therefore do not experience pain, but are simply mechanical beings that elicit a response. This belief allowed him to comfortably perform vivisections (i.e. the dissection of animals while they are still alive). Descartes tortured a dog to death. His followers nailed poor animals up on boards by their four paws to vivisect them and see the circulation of the blood, which was a great subject of conversation.

<<<<MY COMMENTS are interspersed in this summary. PLEASE NOTE THAT>>>>>>
The 3 women, mrs. who, mrs. which, and mrs.whatsis, who live in a haunted house. : Mrs Which’s physical appearance is not set; she appears as a shimmering light most of the time. However, she does once take on the appearance of a traditional witch, complete with black hat and broom Mrs Which (witch) is portrayed as being the wisest, with vast knowledge.
The man with the red eyes possesses people. Demon possession.
Centaurs are in the movie: centaurs rape women. That’s what they are known for.
3 beings in the movie, Mrs Whatsit, Mrs Who, and Mrs Which turn out to be supernatural beings who, besides being centaurs, end up transporting (astral projection) Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O’Keefe through the universe by means of tesseract, a fifth-dimensional phenomenon explained as being similar to folding the fabric of space and time. Their first stop is the planet Uriel, a Utopian world filled with Centaur-like beings who live in a state of light and love. Mrs Whatsit herself shows that she, Mrs Who, and Mrs Which are all these centaur-like creatures in disguise as humans. The children are then taken elsewhere to visit a woman who is a medium (the “Happy Medium”) with a crystal ball. The children then travel to the dark planet of Camazotz,….they discover a red-eyed man with telepathic abilities who can cast a hypnotic spell over their minds. Then they go to planet Ixchel.
(which, when unscrambled, makes the word helix. In Geometry:a helix is
a curve on a conical or cylindrical surface that would become a straight line if the surface were unrolled into a plane.)
By the way, the Ms. W’s ask the children to name figures on earth who fight the darkness, and they name Jesus, and then they name Buddha, and other philosophers and artists.
Blasphemy! Such irreverence.
(A Wrinkle in Time is on the American Library Association list of the 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books of 1990–2000 at number 23. Reasons given include the book’s references to witches and crystal balls, the claim that it “challenges religious beliefs”, and the listing of Jesus “with the names of great artists, philosophers, scientists, and religious leaders”)
Charles Wallace is left on the evil planet, and…. Meg eventually overcomes her anger at her father for leaving Charles Wallace on Camazotz,….. but she later rescues her brother herself, because the 3 supernatural “female beings” give her the power of love, and actually quote from the bible! Deception, using all this witchcraft and intertwine it with the bible, is nothing short of blasphemy! This is how that happens in the book: The trio of Mrs Whatsit, Mrs Who, and Mrs Which charge Meg with rescuing Charles Wallace from IT, because only Meg has a strong enough bond with him. Their father had last seen Charles Wallace when he was a baby and Calvin had only just met him. They each give her a gift. Mrs Whatsit gives Meg her love. Mrs Who quotes to Meg a passage from the Bible about God choosing the foolish of the world to confound the wise, and the weak to defeat the strong (1st Corinthians 1:27-29). Mrs Which tells Meg that she has one thing that IT does not have. Upon arriving at the building where IT is housed, Charles Wallace is still there under IT’s influence. Meg realizes that the one thing she has that IT does not is love.
So, here we go again with the ecumenicism and love everybody, and don’t be politically incorrect, and don’t judge anyone, and don’t say there’s only one way to Heaven, to God. The word LOVE, nowadays, has been twisted so badly that people don’t even know what Godly love, TRUE love,is. The church of Oprah has struck again.
