A third dimensional object has length, width and height. Taking a cross-section of this object anywhere along one dimension results in a two dimensional object, i.e. a line segment with length and width.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A two dimensional object has length and width. Taking a cross section of this object anywhere along one dimension results in a one dimensional object, i.e. a point with only one measurement.

Is that to say that the cross section of a fourth dimensional object should be a three dimensional object? Taking a cross section of an object moving through time and space throughout it's life would result in a three dimensional object.

Is that to say that the cross section of a fifth dimensional object would be a single object moving through time and space? If you took every object that exists, while moving through time and space, in relation to each other and took a cross section you would be left with a single object moving through time and space.

Is that to say that the cross section of a sixth dimensional object would result in every object that exists moving in time and space in relation to each other? Calculating any given alternative of everything that exists at any one given point would result in a single instance of every object that exists moving through time in space in relation to each other.

Is that to say that the cross section of a seventh dimensional object would be every possibility that could occur when everything that exists moves through time and space in relation to each other?
