Is it possible that E=MC^2 should actually be written E=MC^(D-1) where 
D=the dimensional plane on which the oject exists?  To explain, if a two-
dimensional object existing in a two-dimensional plane were to be 
instantly converted to energy, the energy release of that object would be 
significantly less than the energy derived from a similar instance in 
three-dimensional space.  Concurrently, it seems logical that a one-
dimensional construct could not explode if it existed in a one dimensional 
place, it would have nowhere to expand to.  Just curious, some one answer 
if possible.
