Re: 4TH Dimension

Do not mix 4th space dimension and time. From theory of relativity it was found that there is no absolute time frame, it depends on your space frame of reference. Hence when space-time is dealt mathematically, it is convinient to consider time as a fourth dimension (Minkowskii's original idea). So when time is called fourth dimension, it is purely mathematical convinience.

However 4th space dimension is a different thing. We do not know whether it exists or not, but there are theories (like string theories) which demand the existence of such extra space-dimensions.
