So you are saying that the green line is not shorter then the red, blue or yellow lines. READ YOUR OWN ARTICLE!

The green line represents Euclidean distance.

The blue line represents Taxicab distance.

If you are in an Euclidian geometry, then you measure with Euclidian distance.

If you are in a Taxicab geometry, then you measure with a Taxicab distance.

If you are in an Euclidian geometry, but measuring with Taxicab distance then you are measuring wrong.

If you are in a Taxicab geometry, but measuring with Euclidian distance then you are measuring wrong.

HOW you measure "distance" is determined by the geometry you happen to be in.

The Universe we live in is NOT Euclidian, so which geometry are you defaulting to?
