Since all this 4-dimensional info started filtering in, the thinking provoked is very interesting. When I looked in the mirror this morning it occurred to me that what I'm looking at isn't just a flat reflection of myself, it's another version of myself in mirror-image, my anti-self, the other side of me that makes for my universal symmetry.
Scientists bang on about symmetry all the time and there's even a particle physics magazine devoted to its name. What we have here in the mirror is a portal based on liquid and reflection, a 3-D version of the quantum mirror in Stargate and lots of other sci-fi programmes, and just because we can't slip a hand in and touch each other's fingertips here in 3-D space doesn't mean we don't have a symbiotic connection with ourselves across the branes of the Multiverse.
So next time you catch yourself in the mirror '''' consider your reflection as the other side of yourself that's been caught at the same time as you have. There in front of you is a friend you can count on, who have each other's interests at heart. When you leave the mirror, there's no telling what your other half is up to and your other half won't know what you're doing, either. When you get back to the mirror and have a chat about it, you can agree to go off and do what needs to be done next to get on with getting a better life out of the time available. Then you can throw a glance at each other when you next catch yourselves in the moment, and maybe give a quick wink. It's okay, you know. Everything's fine.
Glass is liquid, silver reflects a pure light. Combined as they are in mirrors, this meld gives us a 3-D doorway. Here in 3-D flatland we have no chance of 4-D security clearance, there won't be an access code coming along in this lifetime.
Think about it. Our link to 4th dimensional living space was right there in front of us all along.
Go behind the pics to find out where they came from.
To answer your comment, Matt, time isn't a spacial dimension, it's just a measurement of cycles with meaning to us because we have a life span which we segment into pieces to give an order to our existence. Animals don't need it, we just end up taking the measurements for them.
Living as 3-D beings means that we are stuck with looking at 2-D space, so we only ever see a flat picture in front of us which our brain, understanding as it does the role of photons in making things visible, interprets light and shade as it fills up the picture. This understanding doesn't stop the picture in front of us from being flat, and we cannot access matter beyond the surface electron layer, we're not allowed. This is why we can't put our hand through walls, or draw a 4-dimensional object which isn't just a 2-D interpretation of what one might "look like".
Science suggests that dimensions are sorted at right angles to each other, so explaining why they can't be 'seen', along with the curled-up-in-little-packets theory that just wants to tuck them up out of sight, out of mind.
Once we get ourselves to a point where we can "think 3-D" then maybe we can make friends with our Universe in ways we'd never thought possible?
