In Flatland, the rulers of the 2D world want the people to remain ignorant of other dimensions because it threatens their ability to rule and have power over them. They have contrived a prophecy that every millenium one person will come to preach about the other dimensions and that one person will be imprisoned or executed. This is what happens to A. Square.
