The world we live in is strictly 3dimensional: up/down, left/right, and forwards/backwards, these are the only ways to move. For years, scientists and science fiction writers have contemplated the possibilities of higher dimensional spaces. What would a 4 or 5dimensional universe look like? Or might it even be true that we already inhabit such a space, that our 3dimensional home is no more than a slice through a higher dimensional realm, just as a slice through a 3dimensional cube produces a 2dimensional square?
