Is a cone a the degenerate of a 4 dimensional hyperbola?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I only ask because I think it is and I am not sure. I am trying to get better at higher dimensional visualizations.

My analogy being that a point is the degenerate of a 3 dimensional cone. With that logic wouldn't that make a cone the degenerate of a 4 dimensional hyperbola?
