[QUOTE=imasillypiggy;24480663]well you dont need numbers to get the basics of it and that is that there are an infinite number of universe each with different laws and rules[/QUOTE] Being shown a pretty drawing and told its called infinity is one thing, placing ∞ into a problem just makes more problems.
[QUOTE=superdinoman;24480701]Being shown a pretty drawing and told its called infinity is one thing, placing ∞ into a problem just makes more problems.[/QUOTE] well never ask your computer to try to do infinity
Once you get up to the 6th and 7th dimension, being a human kind of doesn't matter. Everything you can and have been exist at the same moment. Edit: I'm gonna go to bed before my head explodes.

This means choice doesnt exist, free will doesnt exist, and everything is predetermined. Basically means, without knowing the future already you cant change it. I usually think of infinity as a 0 as calculating infinity is about as impossible as dividing by 0. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BT7dxgs0gjo[/media]

[QUOTE=imasillypiggy;24480960]who said anyone has free will?[/QUOTE] No one in this thread and I just thought Id throw that out there for some people to say "wut" about.

[QUOTE=Jager_57;24480265] Virtual reality on the other hand... It just might become a possibility in the far future.[/QUOTE] Virtual reality is already possible. See all these stupid motion controllers. If they can detect you in 3d and copy movement into a game, then advancing this tech a bit more would easily create VR.
:psyboom:
the 4th dimension isn't time, by the way some people claim it is, but the word "dimension" is not at all the one you want to use for that sort of thing.
go re-learn your dimensions, young padawan :frog:
I don't know dimesnions too well, so this might be a stupid question. But can there be living things in the dimensions above the 3rd?
[QUOTE=Billiam;24479724]JohnnyMo said it was wrong and he's a physics student or something :saddowns:[/QUOTE] Yeah that video is really really shitty. [editline]12:34AM[/editline] Up until the 4th dimension it's okay then it just gets utterly wrong. [editline]12:35AM[/editline] [QUOTE=CowThing;24480083]I don't know why people think the 4th dimension being time would mean it isn't spacial. Also, who is JohnnyMo?[/QUOTE] Hello!
:psyboom:
How many dimensions are there?
This thread appears to be full of twelve year olds spewing "MINDFUCK" and "OMG HEAD ASPLODE", It's really not that hard to understand. Watch that carl sagan youtube video on the first page. The fourth dimension is simply another "direction", one we can't point to or move through, because our entire universe is three dimensional. The "rotating" cube is a representation of a 3D shadow of a 4D object - just as we 3D beings cast 2D shadows.
[QUOTE=titopei;24483477]How many dimensions are there?[/QUOTE] If M-theory is correct, possibly 11: ten spatial and one temporal.

[QUOTE=Alaskan Wolf;24483723]Well, do 2d beings cast 1d shadows?[/QUOTE] Through extrapolation, yes.
[QUOTE=Alaskan Wolf;24483723]Well, do 2d beings cast 1d shadows?[/QUOTE] Yes. Also, fun fact: On a four dimensional planet, you could move in three dimensions without leaving the ground.
[QUOTE=Furioso;24478326]if i remember correctly, supposedly that object (also known as a tesseract) is the three-dimensional shadow of the true fourth-dimensional cube - ergo, [b]shadows[/b] in the fourth dimension are [b]three-dimensional[/b] :tinfoil:[/QUOTE] Left 4 dead.
[QUOTE=JohnnyMo1;24483626]If M-theory is correct, possibly 11: ten spatial and one temporal.[/QUOTE] Shit.
[QUOTE=pudt duck;24477940]yeah some youtube video i saw said it once that means its true[/QUOTE] Youtube is a piece of shit full of ranting kids.
[QUOTE=poopsicle;24485978]Youtube is a piece of shit full of ranting kids.[/QUOTE] That doesn't mean the videos can't be legit.
[QUOTE=Within;24485991]That doesn't mean the videos can't be legit.[/QUOTE] Yeah I know, I was just saying that for the hell of it.
[QUOTE=Within;24485965]Shit.[/QUOTE] there's a really fantastic book about this that explains it all (as well as some quantum mechanics, einsteins general and special theories of relativity, string theory) but it isn't too inaccessible [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperspace_%28book%29[/url]
[QUOTE=superdinoman;24477948]4th dimension is a spacial dimension like every other spacial dimension, just think of it instead of up, down, right, left, it has another movement. My favorite definition of the 4th dimensional movement is to think of the it as "through".[/QUOTE] So you mean that those kids in that one children's book where they go on a bear hunt were shifting through the fourth dimension?! ("Can't go over it, can't go through it, can't go around it, WR HAVE TO GO THROUGH IT!")
[QUOTE=guckymister;24477761]Are we ever going to go into the 4th dimension? If so what would it be like?[/QUOTE] If you mean 4th spatial dimension then no because a 4th spatial dimension doesn't exist in our universe. So the answer is no. Why can't people google this shit man it's so easy and save them from building box forts.
