I think I read on these forums that a small piece of relatively flat 4D spacetime of General Relativity can be embedded in ten dimensions. What happens if the small piece of spacetime is not very flat, does this change the number of embedding dimensions required?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks for any help!
