Hey there...I know this is prob a realy simple question...but what is a dimension...i really dont get it. Also did we make up time or was it around b4 humans were around?
Sorry I don’t think that’s right. In this analogy the water would represent space.Originally posted by scott_sieger
For me the best way to describe a dimension is when you look at a swimming pool; full of water. The water in the pool is a dimension and the sides of the pool and the surface of the water could be considered dimensional barriers.
Not much of a mistake- there are theories that include more than 3 space dimensions.Originally posted by scott_sieger
ohhh I see....you are talking about the usual 4 dimensions dimensions being away of measureing space and time....ahhh I see
I was thinking about dimensions as being a volume ((4dimensions) as a physical entity and not a construct.
Example might be for instance the legendary atlantis slipping in to a dimension that co-exists with the one we live in or the idea of parallel universes as separate dimensions co-existing.
my mistake sorry
I can't add to what integral said other than this:1. Physical units of measure are refered to as dimensions..
