Living in a world of three-dimensional space, we can hardly conceive of phenomena of higher, or lower, dimension. What would a two-dimensional universe be like? How can we even attempt to picture objects of four... five... six dimensions? If we can visualize them, does that mean they are real? Such as the concepts explored in Beyond the Third Dimension, which investigates ways of picturing and understanding dimensions below and above our own.
