: How does anyone know what the 4th dimension is? : And how can anything be less than three dimensions. If something is a point, it must have a dimension, otherwise it would not exist. A line must have length and width to be visible as a line. Same with plane.

You don't see a line.....it is merely a mathimatical representaion of a dimension. Just like you don't see numbers in nature..they too are mathimatical reprensentations of units. Everything is man made and lines and points for that matter are "seen" to represent their position, not their size.
