@ Chandra:

Defining Physics itself is difficult, let alone 'meta-physics'.

The thing about infinite dimensions, I do not really agree.It is like , say in a Cartesian Sys. you can draw infinite lines, but are they 'Distinct' in the sense that they are 'dimensions' ? No. They represent the same plane.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts :)

supper!! the voice says that "There is no space left for 11th dimension ?" oopps.. Logic wont agree. there could be infinite dimensions. but this vedo explianes only with time. dont you think.... there could be some other relation dimension, which human ever know ..? in this materialistic /atomic world...? -but that should not lead to meta-phyisics. but the physics...

Thanks for your insights.The part about 'mirrors'- allow me to applaud. That thought struck me long after watching the video.

What made me post it here though, was the fact that 'Time' the fourth dimension was explained with such an ease using common-sense illustrations.And hats off to the brain who conceptualized this!! 

The remaining part might or might not be of your interest depending upon how much you bother about Heisenberg's Principle or Schrödinger's cat.

My school of thought on this can be summed up as:

“one of the strongest motives that lead men to art and science is escape from everyday life with its painful crudity and hopeless dreariness, from the fetters of one's own ever-shifting desires. A finely tempered nature longs to escape from the personal life into the world of objective perception and thought.” - Albert Einstein.

Hmm, this ought be an interesting watch, although I couldn't watch past the first 4 mins due to connection issues. I wonder what I'd be seeing if I was an inhabitant of 'flat earth', or a character in/on a comic book, or a painting even, regardless of how '3D' it looks. I wouldn't be aware of what's next to me, or the rest of my body either, since one would need a third vantage point to perceive what's going on. Even if there was a mirror placed alongside, in a different plane, to reflect back what's around me.. it'd breach the conditionality of 2D. So my existence would essentially be conceptual, like that of a point. There would be nothing to perceive, although people in the 3D would know of my world, but that would be irrelevant since the universe that I perceive/interpret is all that there is - the unknown unknowns would be meaningless. All the (inter)activity amongst characters we see on a comic book is from our (3D) vantage point - does Superman know Lana Lang, or Bahadur... Bela, or Mandrake, Narda? I think (I thinks!) they are all alone, or al-(L)-one, a pure awareness with no other thing to be aware of! Thanks Richa, you gave me another excuse to rant :D
