What is a black hole in 4th dimension looks like?

In summary, the conversation discusses the concept of a black hole in the 4th dimension and how it would appear to an observer in the 3rd dimension. It also mentions the idea of a 4th dimensional being moving through our universe and how it might appear to us. Additionally, the conversation touches on the possibility of living in all dimensions and the role of black holes in understanding the nature of dimensions.

If there is a black hole in the 4th dimension, how will it looks like in the observer in 3rd dimension?

You can't see a black hole, that's why its called a black hole or dark star. But assuming the black hole has visible accedation disks and high energy particles flying out of it:

Depends on if the observer or black hole is moving.

Remember Flatland... Mr. Square watches Lord Sphere move through his dimension, since Mr. Square sees everything 2 dimensionally, he sees Lord Sphere like if you were at the bottom at a pond scum and algae covered lake, and saw a hollow ball fall into it in slow motion. From directly underneath you would see a circle, then it gets bigger and bigger, but Mr. Square was a algae cell. He saw a small circle, that got bigger and bigger, then it hit its equator, and the big circle got smaller and smaller, as Lord Sphere moved silently an swifly through Mr. Square's flat piece-of-paper universe.

If a 4 dimensional being were to go through our universe, silently and swiftly like Lord Sphere... Dr. Blob would be something like... imagine a 3 dimensional amoeba, growing larger and larger, then smaller and smaller. To add some special effects, maybe make it look like liquid metal, with those little oil rainbow things at the end of its little psuedopods.

But I don't know what a black hole would look like...

Hope I explained it well!

Yes you can see a black hole indirectly. you can observe the EM-radiation emitted by an object that is falling the frozen star

You know what I don't get? Why people look at the fourth dimensions as something you can "enter". Why can we not live in all dimensions? Just the existence of black holes kind of sums it up. I mean, really? If all the matter is confined into that space and goes at first sight NOWHERE, where did it go?

What is a black hole in 4th dimension?

A black hole in 4th dimension is a theoretical object that exists in the fourth dimension, a dimension beyond our three-dimensional world. It is a region in space where the gravitational pull is so strong that nothing, including light, can escape from it.

What does a black hole in 4th dimension look like?

Since we cannot perceive the fourth dimension, it is impossible to accurately describe or visualize what a black hole in 4th dimension looks like. It is believed that it would appear as a three-dimensional object that is infinitely thin.

Can we see a black hole in 4th dimension?

No, we cannot see a black hole in 4th dimension. As mentioned earlier, the fourth dimension is beyond our perception and understanding. Additionally, since light cannot escape from a black hole, it would be impossible to observe it.

How is a black hole in 4th dimension different from a black hole in 3rd dimension?

A black hole in 4th dimension is different from a black hole in 3rd dimension in terms of its properties and effects. In the fourth dimension, a black hole would have a different shape and behavior due to its higher dimensionality. It would also have a greater gravitational pull and its effects on surrounding matter would be more extreme.

Can a black hole in 4th dimension be detected?

At this point, there is no way to detect a black hole in 4th dimension. Scientists are still trying to understand the concept of higher dimensions and how to detect objects in them. However, with advancements in technology and theoretical physics, it may be possible in the future.
