Dude the Demention of the very fast is just a term for Something that travells too fast for the human eye to catch.
It's not a alternate dimention.
If the right conditions are met, a fast moving object can either be seen, or not seen, according to whatever the conditions dictate.
Reflectivity, Range, Size & Color are the main factors that will determine whether you can see it or not.
Tracer rounds can be seen because they are very bright.
Jet planes can be seen "even at moch 2", for several reasons....
1. they are very large.
2. they are often dark against the lighter colored sky.
3. because when something is further away, it appears to go slower than it really is, because the field if view is much greater than the object can
A bullet cannot be seen by the naked eye because it is very small & travelling faster than the eye can see at a much closer range "covering more
ground that the eye can focus on in it's fielad of view.
Rods can not be easily be seen because they are translucent & small, although not travelling as fast as a bullet or jet plain (their estimated speed
is only around 200 - 300 mph), they are easily missed.
Picture a Jellyfish (translucent but reflective), travelling at 300mph. It would be very dificult to see unless its reflective body catches the
sunight at the right moment, giving you a quick flash as they speed by.
While a Race car going past at 300mph can be seen because it is very large (though it would stil look very blurry if you are colse to it).
