      In the Big Book is this: " We have found much of heaven and we have been rocketed into a fourth dimension of existence of which he had not even dreamed." (pg 25 Big Book) I looked up the definition of "fourth dimension" and found this on google: 1. "A postulated spatial dimension additional to those determining length, area, and volume." 2. "This is an invigorating book," proclaimed Timothy Ferris in The New York Times Book Review, "a short but spirited slalom for the mind." Author Rudy Rucker, one of the most talented contemporary authors of cutting-edge math and science books, conducts a fascinating tour of a higher reality, the fourth dimension. Includes problems, puzzles, and drawings.

They are a mathematical tool. When people say we live in "3-dimensional. 4D, meaning the 4 common dimensions, is an important idea in physics referring to three-dimensional space (), which adds the dimension of time to the other three dimensions of length, width, and depth.

In geometry, the fourth dimension is related to the other three dimensions by imagining another direction through space; just as the dimension of depth can be added to a square to create a cube.
