    I’m unclear about dimensions beyond the fourth (time.) Can you explain what the higher...

    dimensions are and how they work?

    Modern science agrees that there are more than 4 dimensions, while they are not entirely in agreement as to how many dimensions we talk about.

    According to modern superstring theory, the assumption of 11 dimensions makes the most sense, since it seems to explain a lot of open questions.

    I recommend, if you are really interested in this topic, the book "The elegant universe" from Brian Greene, which makes a great attempt at explaining this highly theoretical concept in simple terms for non-scientists.

    It stays a complicated subject in any case, and cannot be explained in a few words, just because our understanding is always limited by our three-dimensional thinking.

    But it is a fascinating subject and certainly worth exploring.

    Suppose you invent out,the so called the fifth Dimension.Then you will be called upon to relegate it down upon the four dimensional object,so that it could be recognised as one another extension of Dimension over and above the pre-existing 4D object.This relegation will become impossible,if you wrongly comprehend any of the subordinate dimensional definition.
    Wherefore i am called upon to become definite,as to what you recognise,as to be the 4th Dimension,and if that really qualifies,to be relied as a spatial dimension in space.
    I am afraid,Time is certainly not a spatial dimension,it encompasses nothing in space,upon which the universe of fifth dimension could be based upon.
