# Suppose there is an extra compact dimension, and suppose

Suppose there is an extra compact spacial dimension in addition to familiar space dimensions x, y, and z. Let us suppose that matter is some kind of 3 dimensional surface moving in these 4 spacial dimensions, 4-space, in some cyclical manner. Let us suppose that from the shape of the surface we can get physics. Assume as an observer we ourselves are some complicated 3 dimensional surface in 4-space. Now as observers we only notice the dimensions x, y, and z. At a given instant matter is "distributed" about in 4-space so that in 3-space at a given instant matter is but a 2 dimensional surface in 3-space. Matter is nowhere and in time everywhere.

Thanks for any thoughts or help making this more interesting.
