In the book, a sphere is trying to convince a square it lives in 3-D. All the square could notice is that what it thought to be a circle grew to
certain size, then shrank down to a point. Then disappeared but square could still talk to the sphere.
Now if a being were to do something like that. Huh? They would look like a doughy flesh sack at some point (just like the rest of us). The other part
would be unknown because we do not have a language to describe it! Parts and pieces or even rudimentary knowledge would be there. Words like, "magic"
and "woo" and "psychic" come to mind. As do words like, "trippy"! But to explain what an unbelievable experience would be like... it would pointless
in a sense!
What order do we perceive "higher dimensions"? It all become an epistemological question. Like, "How do I know what I call, "blue" is what you are
seeing?" You might be seeing purple! Now you could go all science nerd and user "wavelength" to describe things but that just pushes the "experience"
aspect back a bit. "Where or how do we measure higher dimension" would be a question to ask!
The mind is pretty good at ignoring things! We do it all the time without us even noticing. I would imagine it would be the opposite where everything
becomes "infinitely more interesting" than we previous noticed. And would be happening as fast you could concentrate! I think light would be involved
because it is pretty freaky stuff to begin with! Then I would bet being able to "hear other people's thoughts" would be there!
At least that is my idea! Total freak out happening in rapid fire succession. Probably sounds too. Maybe a cool techno beat? There are some
experiences like sky diving that I would bet would be good training. Full physical and mental freak out with a light and sound show! And you really
couldn't explain everything in words to others afterwards!
