so it follows that 4D objects would cast 3D shadows

Calling it now: it will be discovered that electron-positron pair creation is actually the formation of hyperdimensional toroidal vortex/antivortex pairs. That's what make them charge invariant while their magnetic moment can change with spatial orientation. They just scoot through space along their minor axis in 3 space(spin) and perpendicular to their major axis(charge) which from 3d space looks like an inflow/outflow, respectively.
In a wider sense, one can use the word matter simply to refer to fermions. In this sense, the process inverse to particle annihilation can be called matter creation; more precisely, we are considering here the process obtained under time reversal of the annihilation process. This process is also known as pair production, and can be described as the conversion of light particles (i.e., photons) into one or more massive particles. The most common and well studied case is the one where two photons convert into an electron–positron pair.
The quantum Hall effect has been the subject of several Nobel prizes and occurs in very thin conducting layers that are essentially 2D in nature.
When such materials are cooled to near absolute zero and subject to a strong magnetic field, the electrical conductance is quantized and can change only in discrete steps.
Part of the subject of the OP is about how vortex/antivortex pairs form in superfluids which don't dissipate until a phase transition occurs in the medium.
Our findings pave the way to experimentally probe higher-dimensional quantum Hall systems, where new topological phases with exotic excitations are predicted.

So do 4d objects contain 3d aspects? If so we should be able to manipulate them right?
Wrong, we can no more manipulate the 'fourth dimension' than a 2D flatlander can visit "Up".
The next dimensions is all around and thru us and yet we see it not. We are spatially locked, just like 2D flatlanders cannot comprehend 'up'.
And yet our very soul exists there, we are already there, literally, and yet we don't even acknowledge our own soul.

I've had this theory about ghosts..
That they leave an imprint using emotion, trapped in a moment that determined the direction of their lives, or something along those lines.
I can imagine that a painting can do the same. It doesn't just capture an instance in time, it captures it through the lens of the artist.
Or it's just paint on a canvas?
Whichever you choose
