Abstract: This paper presents a decomposition of into points and a null sequence of cellular arcs such that is not a manifold; furthermore, the union of the nondegenerate elements from lies in a -cell in and the image in of this union has 0-dimensional closure. Examples of nonshrinkable decompositions with a null sequence of cellular arcs have been constructed in the case by D. S. Gillman and J. M. Martin and by R. H. Bing and M. Starbird. We construct another example in this dimension, for which all the arcs lie in the boundary of a crumpled cube , and then produce higher dimensional examples by spinning .
