Consider, if you will...
visual concepts such as
****** perspective
(showing that penciled-in geometry can add to our comprehension of a natural scene, and be retained thereafter as a mental tool)
****** depth perception
(showing that a second eye adds a third dimension
to vision)

These prove it is POSSIBLE via mental training
and addition of a prosthesis (ie another eye) to
directly perceive another dimension.
Perhaps some folks are doing this with other dimensions and it accounts for some of their opinions.

We DO have physical experience suggesting the dimensions we're discussing that are hard to see, right?
If so, why would it not be only a matter of training and adding a prosthesis, extending our powers with the equivalent of entering the mental "jet age" to exceed the previous barriers.
