Watch: Ten Dimensions Explained

In physics and mathematics, even the most experienced academic is going to have trouble successfully picturing higher dimensions. But if you are a budding scientist or mathematician, they are unavoidable.

Humans live in three dimensions of space—you may have heard these described as a combination of width, length, and height—and one of time. Time is not fully understood, so we describe it on its own as a dimension; though some physicists will suggest that time is a fourth spacial dimension.

This video attempts to break ten spacial dimensions down to a comprehensible level. If you’re a mathematician, you explore higher dimensions for the mathematical abstraction. If you’re a physicist studying ten dimensions, you’re probably doing research in string theory. Even if you’re a layperson, This video should give you some background in spatial reasoning.
