That’s what annoys me. If I look at projections of 3D objects in the 2d plane and projections of 4d objects into the 3rd dimension, it makes intuitive sense but I just can’t fully fathom it. I always feel so close to fully understanding the 4d geometry of the shapes but it’s never enough.

Mathematicians: there are 5 regular polygons in 3d space jan Misali: 48, take it or leave it.

@R L it’s not Jan Misali, it’s jan Misali, “jan” is just the toki pona word for person, it’s not his actual first name

Vor 4 Tage## R L

To be fair, the difference is the definition: Jan misali also accepts polygons that aren't strictly convex, which allows for self intersection, planar tiling and the other things he shows, but if you were to actually define it, most mathematicians would probably restruct them to be strictly convex, and call the other ones semi-polygons or something like that. They're still interesting, but also different. It's actually quite similar to how some people say 0 is prime, while most mathematicians define primes as natural numbers (excluding the 0, should it be considered a natural number in this system), and 0 acts quite different than the other primes

Vor 7 Monate## Let your Light shine

This is freaking amazing! So since in the analogy of flat land (2D) they can only move in length and width, in 3D we can move length width, and height. In 4D space, it would stand to reason then that they can move on some 4th dimensional plane of space? To us it would appear as if they were phasing in and out of existence, and yet to them it would simply be moving in the 4th plane. Much the same as we can move up and down. 4th dimensional space would have to be larger than 3D space? One thing perplexing me though is this: suppose their were other being in this 4D space. Would we not observe them in our 3D space? All these polytopes are attached to each other so we would see them much as flat landers would see us as a line, we would see them as a 3D object. Some are suggesting that the UFO phenomenon is really beings from a higher dimensional space. But how in the world would they hide themselves from us? Do the reside inside the polytope? How would that be possible. Another way to consider this is that we reside in all three dimensions of space. Wouldn’t they also reside in all 4 dimensions of space? We do not have the ability to shift ourselves into 2D space, other than say taking a flat photograph. But that is an artifact of our existence, not actually our existence. I hope my musings and questions about this make sense to someone with more understanding than myself. If you have any thoughts or ideas about how to answer any of these questions, please reply!

Vor 3 years## IIINEMESESII

@Ferenc Rarosi i thought time was man made concept used to measure things moving in a space. as in if humans never were, would there still be time? does the universe need time to function? yes things would still be moving but if there is no observer of objects then what does an infinite universe need time for? idk if im making any sense but i seen somewere about time if its real. i mean obviously to us it is. or to a concious being time is perceived but is it 'real' and needed by the universe for anything? just wondering no disrespect. bc that to me would be a huge reason we can never time travel backwards in time. bc its our concept of something happening. things moved and you cant make them rewind if time was a real thing there should be a way to interact with it? right? we can interact with everything else in the universe. but never with time.

for the 4th dimension I image something with a hinge, imagine 2 cube connected at the corner but only one cube should be visible in the 3d plane while the other cube only becomes visible when the other is invisible, both can be invisible at once but neither can be visible at the same time as the other

The reason why you have to rotate the icosahedron 36° is so that you could actually put the gyro elongated band in between that pentagonal bipyramid if you don't know what gyro elongation is it's pretty much whenever you elongated shape not with squares but with equilateral triangles so you could call the icosahedron a gyro elongated pentagonal bipyramid

It was so satisfying that I was able to understand some semblance of 4D space when he was describing why the "smaller cube" isn't inside the "bigger cube", because in 4D all of the edges and faces would be exactly the same, but the perspective and warping of them as a projection would make it look like this

Alright so in 3D some might view the teapot as another plotonic, so does that mean that maybe in higher dimensions there might be platonic that are just as different

One of my greatest hopes for future technology is the ability to truly visualize 4D space and shapes

@メカフィンチ why are you relying on technology? Heaven is already inside you.

you can visualize these shapes their very common in dmt experiences

@MrSayines yes you can do that, but as you said it wouldn’t be very interesting and you wouldn’t be actually seeing the 4d shape, just slices

This is ART my friends. My HS students are using similar concepts to construct an open cube mobile sculpture. This is critical thinking at it's finest. We need to encourage more of this thought in K-12 EDUCATION. Lisa Daly, Highland HS, SLC UT

Aren’t there technically more regular polyhedra than the 5 Platonic solids? Due to stuff like polygrams and the like? The only difference is that many are either not strictly convex or have no interior

Watching 4D objects represented in 3D projections on a 2D screen.... seems legit

Vor 4 years## Dennis de Jong

Well if you imagine to watch 3d objects represented in 2d projections on an 1d whatever. Maybe you can know how much salt is needed for having an idea about 4d represented in 3d

Imagine playing a dice game with four-dimentional hyperdice, and having to calculate the amount of vertices you have rolled simultaneously. Finally some fun for my physic's colleagues :D

If we actually lived in 2-dimensions, we wouldn't even be able to see the 2-D shadow of the cube. We'd only be able to see one straight line. Imagine what that says about how much of the 4th dimension we're really seeing when we look at a 3-D shadow of a hypercube from the third dimension.

Vor 2 years## Jeremy Toman

Could a simplex ever have enough vertices to resemble a sphere?

Vor 3 Monate## S_man

Just thought of something: look at one side of the hyper cube head on. If you think about it, it looks like the shadow of a normal cube drawn on a 2D plain.

Hi I have a question: How are those extra dimensions (ex.4rth, 5th etc) linked to the higher dimensions of physics if linked at all? In physics fourth dimension isn't conceivable by observation but takes place in the subatomic level ( it can be linked with time , providing different possibilities at the same spatial dimension). In the fifth dimension, we would see a world slightly different from our own that would give us a means of measuring the similarity and differences between our world and other possible ones. In the sixth, we would see a plane of possible worlds, where we could compare and position all the possible universes that start with the same initial conditions as this one and so on.. until the 11th ( by the way in physics things dont go beyond the eleventh while in geometry it seems you can have infinite dimensions.. So is there any link between those geometrical extra dimensions that you present in this video and the extra dimensions of physics ?
