4th dimension. just found, NOT OC!.. The fourth dimension is time in string theory, But spatial dimensions in what I look for. Just sayin', That picture is a 3D projection of a 4D hypercube on a 2D the game hypercube gif

The fourth dimension is time in string theory, But spatial dimensions in what I look for.

Just sayin', That picture is a 3D projection of a 4D hypercube on a 2D computer screen.

we're just 4th dimensional beings intersecting a 3rd dimensional realm that's why we have past, present, and future. IMO

implying that there is a 4th dimension

Acutally there 26th dimensions.

thank you, that was very similar to the explanation that i'm familiar with, and was very helpful.

String theory initially required a model of 'string' as having properties in 21 dimensions to fit with the standard model and explain quantum phenomena. This was subsequently simplified to the point that only 11 dimensions were required. It has since been simplified again so that only 4 dimensions are required.

Hope that helps!

no, there are only ten. the 11'th dimension is on principle totally unknown.

Those dimensions 5-10 (or 5-11) depend on the premise that the fourth dimension is time, which is not agreed upon. Some theorists say time does not exist, while others say it is a component of spacetime rather than a distinct dimension. According to the 11-dimension theory, only 1-3 are spatial dimensions. This image represents a 3-D model of an object in 4 spatial dimensions (meaning length, width, depth, and something else we can't imagine).

sorry, i didn't see this. Most people refer to that principle of string theory as the ten dimensional theory, with 1-3 being spacial variants, 4-6 being temporal variants, and 7-9 being universal law variants, with 10 being a theoretical unknown quantum that works on a plane that we can't possibly conceive.

Everyone seems to be confused.
This is a two-dimensional representation of the three-dimensional shadow cast by a four-dimensional tesseract/hypercube.

In which way is it four-dimensional? I thought time was the 4th dimension. Is it because of moving?

*tactical facepalm*
The shape in the .gif is a representation (because 3D monitors are not common) of a shadow. Since the shadow is cast by a 4-D object, the shadow itself is 3-D (much like how shadows of 3-D objects are flat and 2-D).
There's a Wikipedia page on the 4-D object this is a shadow of. Just search for Tesseract or Hypercube.

I think that page actually has this .gif, actually.

More ********:

There are 8 compartments in that shape.
All 8 compartments are perfect cubes.
All angles are 90 degrees.
The shape is rotating, not changing shape at all.

Add another thing to the list of things my mind can't comprehend.
1: Red pens that write in blue
2: Clear dividers
3: This picture.
