: : : : : : For some reason, I can't remember the name of the fourth : : : : dimension. I know it starts with a "V". Valh...Vahal...????

: : : : AIUTO!!!!

: : : : anyone have more information on this dimension?

: : : The real fourth dimension is TIME. There are a number of other theoretical dimensions in quantum mechanicvs, but I sopmehow don't think that these are the ones to which you refer (nor am I at all certain that they have numbers assigned...).

: : Time is nothing more than a tool used in measuring the rate at which the universe moves....ie moles,lbs, and g. Nothing more than a measuring cup, not a demension.

: Chris, you should check on that. Remember, dimensions do not necessarily have to be spatial, they can also be temporal. Time is definitely a dimension -- which one it is may be up for debate, but it is a dimension nonetheless.

: Check out Rudy Rucker's book "The Fourth Dimension", one of the prevailing theories is that there are eleven dimensions in our universe, ten spacial and one of time. Time is a higher dimension, but not the fourth spacial dimension. General Relativity states that time and space are two manifestations of the same thing.
