1. ## The fourth dimension

Hi

I recently watched the short film Flatland and it made me think...

Is there a 4th dimension?

Because right now where CANT we go? Draw a cube

/--------/|
/_____/. |
|. |. /3D. Ok this looks like shit n the thread, edit mode it kooks normal. U get the point though
|. 2D| /
|__1D__|/

I mean, we can clearly go left and right which is the 1st dimension
We can go up and down (combined with 1D = 2D)
And we can go in depth (3D, )

Is there even another way to go. I mean we can already go ANY direction we want. In 1d you are limited to 2, 2d to 4, but in 3D we are not limited. We can go in ANY way

Explain me 4D because I am mindfucked

2. There's no 4D in that thing that you are talking about, but there are vectors with 4 coordinates (Y, X, Z, W), used for math shits...

3. You're in the 4th dimension. But since you are not a 4 dimensional being, you cannot precept the way you would the other 3 dimensions. You can only see it in "cross sections". You see depth, length, and width at the same time, in it's entirety. But a 2-dimensional being will only precept 2 of those dimensions. A cube will be a square. The 4th dimension is not a spacial dimension like the first 3, but a temporal dimension. It's time. So while you travel through time, you cannot precept it in its entirety. You can only see cross sections, rather, you can only see the immediate present, not the past, present, and future, at the same time.

Thanks. So its time, not a place in space.

7. 4D seeing 3D with multiple views of it at once.

So i c a 3D cube. In 4D you as the person would c a 3D cube but seeing multiple sides at once?

Im just saying what ever the fuck pops in my mind haha

Monkeys and bananas!

Mind fucked.....

According to M Theory there are 10 spacial dimensions and 1 temporal dimension.

9. Also note that you could be living in an eleventh dimension even up to a 27th dimension without even knowing it because those dimensions could be too small for the naked eye to see.

10. Isn't the 4th D Space/time?

The fourth D is time.
