# Re: [Audyssey] Important MOTA News

You've almost got it right. A line goes from north to south, another from west to east, and the third goes from up to down, like climbing a wall.

```HI Tom
Yeah, makes sense somewhat.
```
Although, on paper it is not possible to draw a line going up in the air? Is
```it?
On paper the vertical line is the line going from north to eastt and the
horizontal line is going from south to west?
Then you get the diagonal line that goes oblique.
So with a 3d game like you are creating, do I need a keybord with 6 arrow
keys?
Do I understand you correctly?
In your 3d game  I will move east and west with my left and right arrow
keys, norrrrrth and south with my up and down arrow keys and from floor to
ceiling with yet another 2 additional arrow keys?

Hi Nicol,
No, the line running from left to right and the line running from
front to back are completely different. They are perpendicular to each
other.  That means running in two completely different directions. Let
me give you a simple example maybe you can under stand.
On a piece of paper you draw a line from left and right, east and
west, that represents the x axis of the plane. Now, lets draw a line
running from top to bottom of the paper that runs North and South and
call that axis y. At this point we have your cross shape that points
to the four compass directions North, South, East, and West. Finally,
we are going to add a third dimension to this sheet of paper by
driving a stake through the center of that cross. We now have a new
axis running from floor to ceiling and we will call that axis z.  When
we get done we have three lines all pointing to six different cardinal
directions East, West, North, South, floor, and the ceiling. Make
sense?
