# THE MAGIC OF 4D (4TH DIMENSION)

WRITTEN BY DS

Is there a fourth dimension? I am not talking about the 4th space-time dimension because time, even though is one dimension, isn’t the same as space.

Think of it, why should spatial dimensions stop at 3?

If you are a one-dimension being, you can only move forward and backward. In such a world, you will not know of the concept called left and right, because you would think that they don’t exist. The same situation exists for a creature in a two-dimensional world, who knows how to move forward, backward, right and left, but doesn’t know anything about up and down. Ask the creature in the 2D world to go up, and they will ask you to prove to them by showing them how. Well, you may think it is easy to show them, but convert yourself to a 2D creature, ie flatten yourself from head to toe, float into the 2D world, and then try to show them how to go up. You will suddenly find that you can’t go up or down anymore. The reason is because the up-down force or propulsion for moving up or down doesn’t exist in a 2D world (like a car that has no engine to fly). Also, in a 2D world your eyes will only allow you to look forward, so you can’t see anything upwards or downwards, thereby making the third dimension an imaginary one only.
