Thats what i meant when i said that a being from the first dimension,a one dimensional being,would only be able to see one side of a square,one side of a six sided cube,just like you and i in this reality are three dimensional beings,who can only see three sides of a six sided cube,no matter how we look at it,no matter from what angle,thats all we can ever see at any one time...

Time is a human invention,a way of explaining and dealing with the rising and setting sun and moon,the days and nights,the changing seasons,time gives structure to our lives,but i dont believe that it really exists as a seperate dimension,i dont think time actually exists beyond our thoughts about it,what if there were no humans on earth to think about it,what would become of time? If we were able to stop enslaving ourselves to clocks,watches and calendars,would time really continue to mean anything at all?

And time is the 4th dimension anyway

I find it intriguing and amazing to realize that when i hold out a cube,a six sided square,in front of me,no matter how i look at it,i can only see three of its sides at the same time,no matter how i hold it,i can only see three sides at once and when i view it standing from any perspective,or however i hold my head,or wherever i move my eyes,i'm still only able to see three sides of that cube,even though i know it has six sides,because i am a three dimensional being existing within a three dimensional reality...
