Dimensions simplified

The normal dimensional theory or better said the logarithmical dimensional theory is prevelant in both studies and entertainment. It could be described in simplified terms as following. One goes from a dot(0D) and doubles the dimensions. Thus creating two dots and interconnecting them, becoming a line(1D). This again gets doubled and all dimensional corners are connected. Creating a square(2D), which again gets doubled and all corners are interconnected. Creating a cube(3D), which you should imagine getting doubled again and all corners(16 in total now) are interconnected creating a hypercube(4D), also known as a tesseract.

In simple dimensional theory there is a linear approach. The biggest difference between the two models is that in a logarithmical model any level of dimension always contains the lower order dimensions as a copy. Whereas in a linear model they build upon each other. This also eliminates the idea of travelling to other dimensions, as they are all a part of the same super-dimension.

Dimension Simple figure Corner(s) Angle(s) p/corner
0 dot 1 0
1 line 2 1
2 triangle 3 2
3 tetrahedron 4 3
4 hyper-tetrahedron 5 4

To imagine the hyper-tetrahedron take a normal tetrahedron(which looks like a pyramid but with a triangle as base) and add within the center an extra corner interconnecting the original 4 corners.

This approach has several interesting real world implications that can be demonstrated. Each figure has the lower dimension simplest figure, as its shadow. E.g. a tetrahedron shaped object always makes a triangle shaped shadow. And a triangle(as seen from a theoretical 2D world) would always have a line as a shadow. And thus a hyper-tetrahedron would always have a tetrahedron as its shadow.

This means that we could theoretically live within a 4D, 5D, or higher dimensional world without ever knowing because everything is a shadow of its upper dimension. With logarithmical dimensional theory there are such weird behaviors as; observed resizing of objects when you move them through their higher dimensional axis. These have never been witnessed in reality. Whereas with a linear approach there is no limitation on possible higher dimensions because there are no implications in any way on its own dimensional level. And thus seem more plausible.
