Imagining the 10th Dimension

Now this is neat! While it’s probably not possible for our 3-D monkey brains to literally visualize four or more spacetime dimensions (the fourth being duration, in addition to the three of length, width and depth…) this cool little pair of videos provides useful step-by-step suggestions for conceiving of them, since nothing about higher dimensions prevents us from thinking about them, and this video is ample evidence of that. It’s really mind-expanding (and without recreational pharmaceuticals, I might add…) to think about things like this, especially when given the conceptual tools to do it. Science and math…gotta love ’em!
