How to Visualize 5 Dimensions
In this video, you will understand- What we mean by a 5 dimensional space and How we can visualize the 5 dimensional space geometrically. The video also answers, Why the researchers think that there must be a 5th dimension and why they needed the 5th dimension. After watching the video you will know, why the fifth dimension cannot be observed directly by humans. And most importantly, What is the scientific evidence for the existence of the fifth dimension?
You will also get familiar with the supernatural powers that a person living in the fifth dimension would have and What are the limitations of the fifth dimensional world that are not present in the dimensions higher than the 5th dimension.
What we mean by a 5 dimensional space. A five dimensional space is a space having five dimensions. Actually Dimension of a point is defined as the minimum number of coordinates that are needed to specify that point in it. So to represent a 5 dimensional object we need 5 coordinates.
How we can represent a 5 dimensional space geometrically.
On the Screen you are seeing a single dot. This is the geometrical representation of the zeroth dimension. 0th dimension does not have any length, width or height.
To get the next higher dimension all we need to do is to double the number of points.
Therefore by doubling the number of points we have now two points. And this is the geometrical representation of the first dimension.
Now again double the number of points to get to the next higher dimension i.e. the second dimension. Therefore In the second dimension we have four points and by joining these 4 points, we get a plane surface which is a two dimensional object.
Now on doubling the number of points again we enter into the next higher dimension i.e. the 3rd dimension. Here we have 8 points.
To go to the Fourth dimension double the number of points once again. This time we have 16 points. As you can see here, this 4 dimensional structure is created by joining the respective points of two, 3D structures.
Now if we double the number of points, that are present in the four dimensional structure, we get a structure of next higher dimension i.e. the 5th dimension. You can count that this five dimensional structure has 32 points. On joining these points as indicated in the video we get a 5 dimensional structure.
