It refers to a hypothetical dimension beyond our three-dimensional world, and its synonyms include "space-time," "hyperplane," and "extra dimension." Albert Einstein's theory of relativity introduced the concept of the fourth dimension, which led to the development of various scientific phenomena such as wormholes and time travel. Other synonyms for the fourth dimension include "tesseract," "parallel universe," and "multiverse."

  • Perhaps the first to approach the fourth dimension from the side of physics, was the Frenchman, Nicole Oresme, of the fourteenth century. In a manuscript treatise, he sought a graphic representation of the Aristotelian forms, such as heat, velocity, sweetness, by laying down a line as a basis designated , and taking one of the forms to be represented by lines (straight or circular) perpendicular to this either as a or an . The form was thus represented graphically by a surface. Oresme extended this process by taking a surface as the basis which, together with the latitudo, formed a solid. Proceeding still further, he took a solid as a basis and upon each point of this solid he entered the increment. He saw that this process demanded a fourth dimension which he rejected; he overcame the difficulty by dividing the solid into numberless planes and treating each plane in the same manner as the plane above, thereby obtaining an infinite number of solids which reached over each other. He uses the phrase "fourth dimension" (4 ).
