I'm not sure I see the 4th dimension in the same way, however, I very much see and agree with your statement that we must transcend a dimension
before we can truly understand it. Like my original explanation, the concept is shown by looking at 2d. In the "flatland" video by carl sagan
above, one clearly sees how a being in 3d transcends 2d flatland and how 99.99% of the 3d reality exists completely independent of/beyond flatland.
In my original post, I extrapolated from this 3-2d relationship, the 3-4d relationship - ending with 4d/a 4d reality consisting of EVERY moment across
ALL of time, 'being' simultaneously. As such, a 4d being has not transcended ALL time, but exists in it/as it. As you state, Traveler, in order
for a being to transcend and truly grasp the full nature of 4d, they would have to be existing in 5d.
Here and elsewhere I have spouted that 'true' dimensions only occur at prime numbers and that at all other dimensional points are
'sub-dimensions'. I always make this statement with no supporting evidence whatsoever. Now, if you consider the nature of 4d being described in
this and the original post, you may see a glimmer of how 4d is fundamentally different than say 3d or 5d. I still don't have a firm enough grasp on
it to describe the distinction between sub- and true-dimensions with the necessary level of detail, but soon, soon...
Lastly the concept of comprehending/transcending the dimension(s) prior to that which the being is in, fits well with my assertion that our beings
travel beyond the fundamental 11 dimensions to the 13th in order to verify their understanding of the 11d reality, and that 11d is complete and all
further dimensional realities can be derived from the initial 11.
Just Theory - it's not constricting reality's dimensions when we travel back to 0. What we're doing is simplifying reality, as well as repeating
our experience there but having (at least recorded in our subconscious) a better understanding of the reality in which we exist. Finally, we reach
the origin and unity/oneness/infinite consciousness is restored.
