Teacher professional development and classroom resources across the curriculum. The idea that there are levels of reality that are normally inaccessible in our daily lives is an ancient one. Mathematicians of the mid-nineteenth century brought this ancient fascination into the modern age with their study of spaces of four dimensions and higher. There are a few ways to interpret what we mean by "the fourth dimension," but they all boil down to considering another degree of freedom that is independent of the three spatial dimensions that we have defined. After just a few years of running and jumping around, we all develop a pretty good intuitive sense of three dimensions, but imagining a fourth independent "direction" can pose somewhat of a challenge. Perhaps the most intuitive way to conceive of this dimension is to think about it as time. Viewing time as the fourth dimension is appealing for a number of reasons.
Imagine a world where you can only move forwards and backwards along a line. Now expand this to a second dimension—you can move forwards and backwards, and also left and right, experiencing the world as flat lines moving around one another. What if there was a fifth dimension through which things could move? What would it be like? Does it exist somewhere else, obscured by our four-dimensional brains?
The second, posited by Swedish physicist Oskar Klein, is that it is a dimension unseen by humans where the forces of gravity and electromagnetism unite to create a simple but graceful theory of the fundamental forces. Today, scientists use 10 dimensions and string theory to explain where gravity and light from the electromagnetic spectrum meet. Einstein proposed that the laws of physics are consistent for non-accelerating observers, no matter where in space they are, as absolute frames of reference do not exist. The third part of the equation is that nothing goes faster than light in contrast to Newton's gravitational laws. To make it work, Einstein needed the fourth dimension called space-time. Two theories, independently developed and proposed by German mathematician Theodor Kaluza and Swedish physicist Oskar Klein suggested the possibility of a fifth dimension where electromagnetism and gravity unify.
