The 10th Dimension

We know that the first dimension is just a point. The second would be a line; there's a width and length. The third would be the world we live in; width, depth and height all in one world. But what about the 10th?

If you are curious enough, you can click here and listen to an explanation of the 10th dimension. May sound technical to some, so be prepared.

Here's an excerpt from the site:
In string theory, physicists tell us that the subatomic particles that make up our universe are created within ten spatial dimensions (plus an eleventh dimension of "time") by the vibrations of exquisitely small "superstrings". The average person has barely gotten used to the idea of there being four dimensions: how can we possibly imagine the tenth?
When you reach the site, move your cursor to "Navigation" (the right side) then click on "Imagining the Ten Dimensions".

im not sure whether a dot is called first dimension and a line is called two dimension.
think about it...a line is made up of continuous dots... and if you say that a dot is first dimension, its arguable that a line is also first dimension.
besides that, a dot is actually a line. it's length is too small till people name it a dot... so im confused.
anyway, i never heard of 10th dimension before... interesting

Woah...that's another interesting point of view. It's like a picture is made up of many many pixels or "dots".

Thanks for sharing :D

To remove some confusion ....
A point is dimension ZERO and not one, so the line is dimension ONE and not two ... it makes more since from there !! ;o)

Hm...interesting.
So basically in dimension zero, nothing exists. Dimension one consists of a line...hm...then if we continue, dimension two would have length and breadth so on so forth...

Interesting idea. Thanks for sharing :D
