Seems this belongs in quantum philosophy rather than math...
You maybe right. This may be unsolvable, but I think it is possible.
I do have a couple of questions for people who have put some thought into this matter.
Often I have heard that the 4th dimension is time. Is this an accepted definition, and/or does the 4th dimension ALWAYS have to be defined as time? (assuming there are additional dimensions)
Another concern: Is time an absolute where there are both positive and negative values? Plus, is there infinite time, zero time, and NULL time?

You sure that ain't an English question?
A self-taught number theorist, Beal is also known for the Beal conjecture,[4] a mathematical generalization of Fermat's Last Theorem. He has funded a USD$1,000,000 standing prize for its proof or disproof.[5] His banks also sponsor two annual science and technology fairs affiliated with the International Science & Engineering Fair.[6] Beal also participated in some high-stakes poker games in the mid-2000s that were the subject of a book.[7]
