In every video and educational movie that I've seen, it shows Einstein's vision of Spacetime on an XYZ graph with a fourth dimensional time, but my confusion arises because the videos then put this graph on a two dimensional plane of "Spacetime." My question concerns the visualization of this, I am confused whether one should visualize this in three dimensions, and if so, how do black holes and them tearing a hole in spacetime, rip? I mean to say one always visualizes it on a plane with a singularity stretching downward to infinity, but how would I look at this in three dimensions?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thank you to everyone/anyone who responds, I'm sure that your comment will be very helpful.
