Visualization Was The Original Question

Paul,

The person who asked the original question was simply asking for a better way to picture other dimensions. And my original post was specifically about visualization, not numbers. My suggested links to membranes were not meant as any serious mathematical correlation, just trying to confirm to the reader what he should have pictured. I’m not a mathematician, and I’d not come in here pretending to be one.

Even you acknowledge this – “What is ‘best’ in one circumstance may not be ‘best’ in another.” The tesseract may be a great model for number crunching, but I think not the best for visualizing. Some of us work better if we can see or imagine what we're talking about, I felt this person shared this crutch with me, and so I was simply offering what works best for me.

As for the insults – I apologize. You know me, a real hothead sometimes.

-LH
