Does gravity pull towards the 4th dimension?

  1. Jan 8, 2004 #1
    Thinking along the lines of the 11 dimensions of quantum theory. I've read that the 4th spatial dimension should be parallel to the 3rd dimension. Also something I read speculated on what a 4th dimensional object would look like if it entered 3rd dimensional space. They pictured it essentially as a blob emerging from a point expanding out in 3 dimensions with the point of origin at the center. It got me thinking that gravity pulls towards the center of mass and also a perfect sphere with evenly distributed mass has gravity parallel to all surfaces.

    (Sorry if this is a dumb question, I'm new:smile: )
