A 4D being may be able to perceive time like we do length or height, Therefore they would constantly live in every point in their existence, yet only be present in one moment in time from our perspective.
Try imagine being aware of all that you have and will experience, at the same time at all times. You cannot, you'd simply get to the conclusion that a person/being that can see all of that at the same time, is crazy and would be considered Schizophrenic as the human brain simply cannot handle those higher dimensions.
So the closest thing, you can get to experiencing these extra dimensions, is to fry you brain with impossible scenarios or through extremely advanced math on a paper.
Yeah, this is why I didn't want to mess with time. In fact, I wish time wasn't even considered a dimension, considering that it is an intangible condition that is placed on a physical dimension.

Your confusion's quite understandable since the concept MAKES NO SENSE
I have never thought of anything that doesn't have height width and depth. The only thing that really doesn't fit into a 3rd dimension is waves maybe?

I like to imagine the tesseract, and consider that 4d would simply be adding "in/out" as a new dimensional access. So in 4d you would measure volume with: length X width X height X depth.
Another thing I think about a lot. Not that I profess to know anything here. I have just used these for mental gymnastics while sitting in contemplation.

Where and how can our 3 dimensional reality ever end, where a new dimension (4th, 7th, 9th...) can begin?
During LIFE AND DEATH PHASES WITHIN EXISTENCE AS YOU ASCEND AND BECOME A HIGHER BEING.
Just as many have come from BEING a single celled organism to multi celled the next dimension may be related to your SOUL/SPIRIT/INTERNAL ENERGY dna influenced*** NOW ADVANCING since the cells/DNA has moved/ASCENDED beyond from being single celled to multi celled to fit the current reality of the 3d EA*RTH being (a being 1 must add that may have existed in a less 3d understood type world especially when considering being a single celled organism and being AWARE BACK THEN & IN WATER OR LIQUID SOLUTION, imagine being FULLY AWARE as a single cell of your FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS that would bother many conscious wise to know THEY HAVE TO EVOLE INTO SOMETHING MUCH MORE COMPLEX) ... EVOLVING into something more to fit another dimensional layout AS THE BEING GROWS. WHICH also MAKES A GOOD REASON TO DIMENSIONALIZE THE CREATOR CREATIONS TO BETTER DETERMINE THEIR FINAL OR HIGHER SELFS over periods or life and death within exisence. So again after cell advancement or genetic advancing your SOUL now has to advance which requires you to be accessible to more plains or dimensions. THE SOUL ADVANCEMENT NOW MAY BE RELATED TO DEEDS DONE BY THE MULTI CELLED ORGANISM? These deeds may spark energy within the cells effecting the SOUL make up, hence the need to VIBRATE on a POSITIVE LEVEL so your cells & soul does TOGETHER and not on a negative level WHICH MAY EFFECT YOUR HEALTH NEGATIVELY AND SOUL AWARENESS NEGATIVELY AS WELL. Tricky thing is YOU can be sitting on EA*RTH and SWITCH dimensions w/o knowing until you per say look around and see no 3d buildings or manufactured materials just a natural EA*RTH but your still in same location, so I don't see it as a location only based thing as you were explaining in going to space ect. If you made it to a nebula of what's described as 3d hot gas from EA*RTH 3d observation but was teaming with an energetic kind of PLASMA life that isn't observable within the 3d EA*RTH and beyond range then you have slipped into another dimension within that nebula and may have became part of it due to your energy changing your physical vibrations to match the nebula or photn belt/blackhole ect.edit on 8/6/12 by Ophiuchus 13 because: (no reason given)

The way I see it is that in 2D, you can only perceive waveforms.
We live in a universe that we interpret as 3D. Yet our eyes see 2D pictures. Since our brain has the capacity to process two different 2D images coming from each eye, we see depth.
In a world interpreted as 2D, people (assuming they can live there) would see in 1D. A straight line. And the only thing I can think of that would be able to see is waveforms, since they don't move up, down, left, right. They just go up and down, requiring only one dimension to be able to perceive them.
Which brings me to my next point, It's just a theory proves that this universe is also 2D.
Do our senses work solely on vibrations? I know sound is vibration of air molecules, and light is electromagnetic energy traveling in waves. Our eyes and ear's function is to capture the waveforms created by external stimuli. Then our brain interprets that information into a coherent experience. But we have the technology to transmit images, sound and even more complex data through waves or signals. Just like an anolog tv interprets an electric current into a 2d image with sound, our body may be interpreting 2D signals into a 3D experience. So the world you interact with can very well be 2D.
With this logic, which I know could have a flaw. The world we think is 3D could also be 1D. It doesn't appear to have dimensions. There is only one single point in the universe. Imagining this dot as a single point in the middle of a black voidish backround would be incorrect because that image is 2D. Everything you see is just this one dot including you and everyone else. The dot blinks really really fast. This blinking would be what we based our digital technology on. The dot is blinking a code that is interpreted just like computers interpret data. For this theory to be plausible I am no scientist but I assume that for this theory to be real, the speed of this blinking would be a number/second so big you wouldn't be able to save it on a computer hard drive.

Time is an illusion not a dimension. It's a concept invented by our minds.
