fourth dimensionIm looking for any ideas on how to explain the fourth dimesion to someone in a non mathmatical way #2 20050616 16:36:37
Re: fourth dimensionI thought a dimension bigger than three was impossible.......... School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #3 20050616 17:06:41
Re: fourth dimensionWidth, depth, height and ... time #4 20050616 17:08:03
Re: fourth dimensionAha, I see. School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #5 20050616 17:58:23

Re: fourth dimensionThe fourth dimension is the reason that theoretically an astronaut could launch from the north pole into the depths of the universe and eventually land on the south pole without ever changing direction. #7 20050617 06:23:08
Re: fourth dimensionMathsyperson, can I ask something? School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #8 20050617 07:43:31
Re: fourth dimensionThese are all good ideas and yes I do agree with you mathsyperson. The reason im interested in this topic is just for my own knowledge and curiosity. Right now I am reading something called flatland to try to help me understand more about other dimensions, When im done I will tell about anything interesting I learned. Oh and sorry if I started this in the wrong forum my mistake. #9 20050617 08:28:17
Re: fourth dimensionTheoretical physicists have been trying for a long time to have a "Grand Unified" theory of the universe. Trying to understand how all the aspects of the universe such as gravity, electricity and atomic forces work together.
