5th Dimension?

Been thinking about it. After years of bashing my head off of the wrong points of focus, I think I finally got it in a short, albeit obscure, abstract. Quoted from another page:

I THINK this is how it should look, to quantify an actual 4D plane:

Let’s work with this new theory, if it’s new at all.

The only thing I dont get is how the sun would emit time.
While the earth does get a delay in seeing the sun, this is from light travelling not time.
If one were to slowly walk to the edge of the solar system, their watch would still read the same as if it was next to the sun so “time lag” would be unreasonable.
By the length of a light wave do you mean from end to end or 1 wavelength?

I may have confused the subject. Lightwaves are exactly as you define them, but I personally think they are what quantifies a 4th dimensional plane. The speed of light is constant all across the universe, so working with that it means that from point to point (In this case the surface of the sun to the surface of the earth) would equate to one 4 dimensional plane in terms light years.

But the travel has to happen along the time axis, which is from the point of origin to the point of destination, determined by a 3D spatial location. If I walk from Ottawa to Beijing, my path of travel is a 4 dimensional pathway. I am a 3 dimensional object (Or group of objects, so to speak), and so is Beijing, but we are one through my axis of travel, a 4th dimension. That dimension is created by only one thing: The progression of light travelling from the Sun, and its origin is the sun, being 5D as denoted by it’s sphere shape.

Even Earth can be 5D if you look at it properly. Light travelling from the surface of the Earth to the eyes is still a 4 dimensional measurement, you just modify the point of origin.

These are just ideas I’m trying to hash out, thanks for pointing those flaws out.

So is it more of time as measured by the speed of light rather than light itself?

I wonder if the 4th dimension can be measured in a length, since you put it that way. Since the speed of light is constant, I imagine a good formula for measuring it’s length is this:

l = r^2/C^2

…Whereas l is the length, r is radius and C is obviously the speed of light. If we divide the radius by the speed of light, we have the length of a 4 dimensional plane. I think. I’m no “calculusor”, if I may, but I think that if there’s no resistance to light traveling that should be the set formula. Of course, measuring a 5th dimensional plane is really just another surface area measurement in my book, haven’t thought about it in depth.

I am at the library, I’ll look some stuff up. Any thoughts?

Light quantifies time in the same way that inches quantify distance: there are other standards by which to judge time and distance, that’s just the one you chose to use.

This helped me understand the theory behind dimensions quite a bit.
