Time 'could' be a dimension, but this would imply that our universe is actually a static, unchangeable 4d shape or collection of 4d shapes.
And that would also mean a 3d world without time, would also be a static collection of objects.
Ultimately this would mean that (perception of) time, life, death, consciousness and free will, Are all the result of an illusion that the forth dimension casts over the other 3.
(Let that one sink in for a while.)

*sigh* after reading about half these post I see that you ppl are stuck on the thought that time is a dimension .... time is relative, time was created by people as a way of planing things if you didnt know what time it was you wouldent know when the shipping needed to be done or when the money needed to be payed its just a way of orignization its not really a dimension a dimension is were an object exsits time is not an object its a fabrication -_- tired of this time is a dimension crap

basicly its saying that if you could look at ur monitor in front of you right now u could see all sides top bottom left right and behind just by looking at it, it would be as if u had a unhinged camera that could float around but be in 4 places at the same time to put it in a better way of understanding

This was a bunch of words and pictures with little meaning.

In physics there is something called the 4 Vector which describes space-time it can be described by the matrix
where i is the square root of negative 1 and c is the speed of light in a perfect vacuum and t is time. This describes the 4-dimensional reality we live in.

I personally believe that the 4th dimension is time. always have. This video was actually very confusing, but I guess that is understandable, considering how difficult it would be to think in 4D

It's true that the space in which we live is composed of three spatial dimensions, and one time dimension. However, this video is about a fourth SPATIAL dimension, and has nothing to do with time as the fourth dimension.

And for those of you who don't believe time is a dimension, research Special Relativity. It's been scientifically proven to be accurate, and relies on time being considered as another dimension, albeit one which we have no control of.

Also, I really like the idea that a 4D object/person can draw in 3D. I just think that's cool :D

Well, I guess i get it.
I just keep going from being confused as f*ck to actually understanding things.

Smoke Salvia. You'll see the 4th dimension.

"i thought i understood it before but now im confused again...i think its his voice...is it microsoft sam?"

Me too. This used to make sence to me before, but now this video had completely trashed what I used to think I understood.

I'm going back to bed.

As for the "viola" thing, fancylad must've changed my description around. I have taken French in school for 12 years so i *might* just know it was "voila" even though that is kinda of a bastardization of the real french term.

I think that dimension 1 is just a line- if you work backwards from their definition of dimension 3= an infinite number of planes laid on top of each other, then 2-d must be an infinite number of lines laid side-by-side.
I don't think that ideas have duration. How can you mark when an idea starts? And if you believe that there is no original thought, then all ideas have existed since the beginning of time, and they will end at the end of time. And Time as the 4th dimension is not really what the video is talking about- it fits well, but this is one of the best *mathematical* models for a possible fourth dimension.
Of course, my brain is laying in pieces, exploded on the floor, so... nothing makes sense anymore.

the best example was the vision one. How we can only see things that fill up a 2D area, and we cannot see through things (lets just say everything is opaque), but a 4D entity can see past these opaque objects and see the things behind them. I surprised i got it, considering im only 17 and i don't take physics!
