And now what happens when we add the Z axis to this theory? Where can we travel then?
The 4th dimension is used as a catalyst to ‘jump’ from one 3rd dimension moment to the next. Because each dimension is static (including the 4th D), 4D creates a bridge-like connection to give access to other ‘locations’ in the 3rd D, and creates an illusion of ‘moving around.’ The speed to which we use this process is the speed of thought (which, as you know, when you stop and think about it is extremely fast), hence why we don’t notice it. Now because we are a very linear thinking civilization we only move in one direction with this process which creates the effect of ‘past/present/ and future’ or in more popular (although highly inaccurate terms) ‘Time.’

We already have the Z axis.
I kind of always viewed it as.
1D is a point. X.
2D is a line connecting two points, and you can travel along it. X & Y
3D is X, Y and Z, 3 dimensions.
So, 1D is a point. 2D is a group of 1Ds (of points) joined in a line. 3D is X,Y,Z, a group of points (1Ds) and lines (2Ds) along three dimensions. So 4D would be a group of 3Ds, or a group of X,Y,Zs, connected together. So traveling through the 4th Dimension would be traveling between groups of X,Y,Z, so from one 3D realm to another. Either through time or into parallel dimensions. Parallel dimensions are different groups of XYZ.edit on 13-3-2012 by Rukas because: (no reason given)

Since we already know what the first four dimensions are and how they relate to observed reality, re-definition into mumbo-jumbo really indicates that you, and the one proposing this different view do not understand it.
The first 4 dimensions are part of a mathematical topology which describes observed space and time. They are not philosophical and metaphysical concepts.

Have you been there? You know that science once postulated that the earth was flat.
Assuming that the fourth dimension is something that we, in the third dimension, can comprehend and quantify in any way shape or form is quite presumptuous no?edit on 13-3-2012 by Glargod because: (no reason given)

I suppose your source fashions himself as some "grand revelator"?
the leading edge of speculation of this type is well beyond a simple toke. don't cheapen it.
Time is of no consequence as there is only the NOW.
