Lists with This Book. I think this is, quite possibly, one of the best books I’ve read on the fourth dimension.


May 26, Nancy rated it it was amazing. Rudolf von Bitter Rucker is an American mathematician, computer scientist, science fiction author, and quxrta of the founders of the cyberpunk genre.

He also quotes other texts like “Spaceland” which Rucker also wrote or “Flatterland” here quarga there, but the one he relies upon most is “Flatland”. North-Westor actual time travel that goes up, and down, without acceleration in speed, from point to point, just like in elevator. If you’re like me, a layman, you probably won’t understand everything, but you’ll still get little tidbits out of it.

In fact, we occupy only different givens.

David Povilaitis’ drawings illustrate Rucker’s heady insights while dozens of quarat and problems make the book a delight to the eye and mind. I highly recommend you read “Flatland” before you ruccker to tackle Rucker’s book, as he constantly quotes “Flatland”, almost to his books detriment. We’re discussing four spatial dimensions, which we can only really represent with mathematics in our three dimensional world. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. That goes sideways on times compass e.


He is best known for his Ware Tetralogy, the first two of which won Philip K.

The Fourth Dimension: A Guided Tour of the Higher Universes by Rudy Rucker

Plato has quartz, race of man, however chained in cave, as all they can see is shadows on the wall. Its effects persist beyond its covers.

Jon Peach rated it it was amazing Jul 24, Once upon a time, I purcvhased a boatload of books related to this–on implications of quantum mechanics, the fourth dimension, parallel universes, and so on. I will read it some day.

This book really changed my perspective on a lot of things. This book takes complex material and presents it in a simple lay-man’s language that is accessible to all.

Those two concepts are dear to mos A good follow-up of Edwin Abbott’s classic Flatland: And so forth, they think that they are actual shadows, because they never saw anything apart from shadows. It probably deserved five stars but I honestly didn’t understand enough to feel qualified to truly judge it. This book helped me understand quarga concept of Spacetime just a little better.

Trivia About The Fourth Dimens La primera parte es muy buena, de la segunda nos podemos dar mus. After finding absolute proof of Black Holes in the universe, I think the multi-dimensional universe or multiverse concept is pretty realistic, since if the Black Hole singularity transcends our space and time For some reason it just stuck with me and parts of it would come back to me over the years.


If you are interested in a fascinating tale about how reality might be totally different than how we generally perceive it, be sure to read this well-written introduction that does dijensione require deep mathematical knowledge, although a keen imagination is very welcome!

Feb 14, Carlo rated it really liked it. Passage of time arises because we think of occupying different realities. Much promised, but little of substance delivered. This book helped me realize that it is really just one of possibly endless amounts of dimensions, so it’s not strictly THE fourth dimension but it is A fourth dimension, next to the three common spatial dimensions.

Refresh and try again. He went on to relate the getting rid of belief in the passage of time to the struggle to experience the One Mind of mysticism.

rdy This guy is an ass hole who really does not have shit to say. Great book for high school AP students and up. Perhaps the real me is fourth-dimensional after all, and the entity typing this is just my three-dimensional “shadow”.
