Weekly reminder that you will never be able to physically touch you're 2D waifu
You can have more than one time dimension?
not to burst your bubble or anything
It's like having multiple spatial dimensions, but time would have separate arrows like in space.
Aright, I can get having spacial dimensions, I can even understand having none, but what the fuck is 3 and above entail?
>fingering your waifu
the last time I check, scientist spoke about something like 13 dimensions. I don't ave any idea of how this works, if some /sci/entist would pass here, it's whelcome.
It's really difficult to imagine.
Just like how you'd be a completely flat 2D creature, you would have no idea about the concept of another dimension (depth).
But they can exist.
Hidamaris are timeless
it's not that there ARE 26 dimensions but comes from polyakov equations in bosonic string theory
No, I can follow spacial dimensions fine, I do think we live in a universe where there are many different movement dimensions, most only accessible at the quantum level.
But time, it can flow forwards or backwards, but flowing sideways... it's not just that I can't picture it, it's that it doesn't even make sense.
it's the same reason why we can't graph 10 perpendicular axes, though it exists
>I can't picture it
welcome to math
Ah shit, I meant I don't understand 3 or above temporal dimensions. Trying to imaged 5D is hard enough, but time going in 3 ways is lunacy.
Curse our brains inability to think in higher dimensions. I wish I could picture this stuff.
I don't think anybody who's used to 1D time can grasp going higher.
The author of the image sauce argues that life can only properly exist in 4D, and he's agnostic
Why is Ritsu slightly to the left of reality?
Her forehead has a magnetic pull, thats why
Please, teach me your sorcerer's ways
this fucking picture
Konata can nuke me in any dimension she wants
Animals with only 2 fotoreceptors can tell apart colors, but they don't have color saturation, all hues of reds seem to them the same, all hues of green the same, etc.
We have 3 fororeceptors so we can see saturation as well.
Many animals (Ducks, Gecko and many more) have 4 fotoreceptors.
How do they see the world?
That doesn't even take into account that the fotoreceptors of different animals can receive different light lengths, meaning they see all colors differently and many can see colors we can't (ultra violet and infra red) and will never be able to imagine.
In fact, most animals see the sky in the same way they see the color violet.
That's because we know 3D-space and can look at 2D and 1D and see what's necessary to tack on extra dimensions. We basically developed N-dimensional geometry because mathematicians had to abstract it far enough that it works for 1, 2 and 3 dimensions. Additional ones just fell out of the whole thing.
Since we only live in a 1D-time universe we simply don't have to deal with all the "time-geometry" that would be necessary in a N-dimensional-time universe. Thus we built a lot of assumptions based on a single time dimension into our understanding of the universe.
Look at all the physics-equations you remember. Everything has a ? built into it as fundamental property. Laws of motion? They propagate through a single time dimension.
You'd basically have to throw out even the most basic things you know about physics and re-derive everything from scratch, without the advantage of being to observe the behavior.
That's why it's so much harder to imagine than 4D objects.
Maybe it's heretical thought, but what if I add another dimension to my waifu and make her 3D?
She already is 3D and always was, you just observe her through a device only capable of displaying in two dimensions.
I'd join you in your quest.
