: If you had an eye at every 90 degree point of your spherical exsistence, you would be in a fourth dimensional world. Think about it!

In response to the eye theory.....It wouldn't work that way, because the eye is only able to perceive 3D objects. So all you would have is a big eye! If you took a cross section of the 4D world, it would would be a 3d object. So you would have to somehow imagine what an image with a 3d cross section would look like. This is physically impossible for us though. We are limited in thought and sight to the 3D world. We understand, mathmatically what the 4d world must be, but because we are confined to a 3D existence, we cannot perceive or create a visual representation of a 4D object. The idea of shifting into the 4D world has been an idea that I have always thought of...but unfortunately I don't think I will be able to figure out how to make that leap. I am a business and Computer student...so I don't really know the mathmatics of the whole 4D world. If anyone has any interesting thoughts or corrections on my breif note, please let me know by emailing me at rml1@bryant.edu. Thanks and keep thinking!!!!
