ENT601-50 Week 4 reflection. The 4th dimension.
The 4th dimension.
Dear classmates, were you raised being told there are only 3 dimensions, as I was taught? The 3 dimensions are height, width, and breadth, (or depth). Scientists have proven these 3 dimensions, so it’s an official thing, for a better lack of words. Then there is the 4th dimension, that apparently has been commonly accepted from scientists, and that dimension is time. Currently, it’s acceptable to say there are 4 dimensions now, but I was told there were only 3. I’m still a little confused if this has been scientifically proven or not. I’m going to look more into this 4th dimension of time, but first, let me tell you a little bit more about what I’m reading for class. These inspirations and questions are coming from the book I’m reading for this class titled, "Hyperspace", by Michio Kaku. “A Scientific Odyssey Through Parallel Universes, Time Warps, And The 10th Dimension.” As the book continues, it goes into detail about these additional dimensions, and it’s blowing my mind. The book is covering 10 dimensions everyone! I sometimes don’t know how to do a single blog reflection, about so much information being thrown at me. I feel like one topic of this book, would take writing another book to explain, and not just a single blog post. I’m trying to develop the skill of summarizing such difficult material. I’m going to try and describe what I’ve learned on the 4th dimension. The 4th dimension again, is time. Here’s the simplest way I can try and explain this dimension. The universe is moving, and we are moving, and don’t realize it because it’s of the earth spinning on its axis so fast, and then moving throughout space as it spins. If we believe time travel is real, we need to not only know the 3 dimensions to get to the right place, but also the time, so that we’re not miles or meters, or even light years off from our destination in the past or future landing. I hope that makes sense. I understand this book well, but putting it into my own words so others can understand, is more complex than I thought. The author Michio Kaku is a brilliant man. Thanks for reading everyone.
