Making the impossible imaginable


Most of us can conceive of three dimensions. Can you imagine wrapping you head around ten? Not being deeply immersed in string theory, I had never even tried. Check out the fascinating linked flash animation (Via marginalrevolution.com). The fact that I almost get it is an amazing testimony to the power and simplicity of flash to communicate complex ideas. After viewing this, I couldnt help but think of Tom Hulce's Pinto in Animal House where, after smoking a joint, he exclaims "you mean to say that our entire universe might be an atom in some all-being's fingernail?".
