Take a line, any line,

and the linear point from A to B

is the first dimension.

*Imagine this line is pliable,*

elastic. It can be altered,

it can be more than it is.

Pull this line towards you,

you now have a width, a square,

and the second dimension.

Take the square,

draw a line from each corner,

it then reshapes into

a three dimensional cube.

We live in three dimensions,

don’t we, isn’t that all there is?

So, you may be asking,

“*Oh Captain, my captain*,

what or where

is the fourth dimension?”

Well, imagine the cube,

and in your mind’s eye

draw lines outwards, one from each

of the cube’s eight edges.

You now have a cube in the center,

yet a new dimension outside it.

This is called a hypercube, *a tesseract*.

That’s the *fourth* dimension,

or akin to on top of a school table

where the classroom never looks

the perspective it once was

after you’ve made the jump,

like a certain scene from a film

about a Dead Poets Society;

literally, thinking outside the box.

Many visitors to Paris don’t realise it, but this structure represents the fourth

dimension, being as close to visualizing a 4d cube in 3 dimensions.

:::shivers::: How I love it when you go all geek on me! (swoon) What about the 6th dimension? Where there is no form and scope but infinity in all directions save from within the observers imagination?

I meant to say the 5th dimension. Oops.

The dimensions are probably endless.

I imagine so.

It’s why it’s curious that most people only consider three.
