its a cool animation
but nothing to do with the fourth dimention

It's a three dimension projection of a four dimension hypercube. The animation represents a rotation in the fourth dimension, so yes, it does have something to do with the fourth dimension.

a 4th dimmensional shape
represented in the 3rd dimmension
on a (almost) 2nd dimennsional screen

HurpDerp I made comment but **** I don't know. Is what the shadow of a 4 dimensional cube would look like in 3d. ********

That's supposed to be an object from the 4th dimension. It's composed of 6 3d cubes, making it a 4d cube. As the cubes move, they deform. However, we're viewing it in our dimension. We can't see things past where we are. That means this is its shadow, not the actual object.
So it's the shadow of a 4d cube.

tell me bro
what exactly is the fourth dimension
you gave the exact same explanation as in the discription
the fourth dimension is,considered by some,is time itself
#235 to #161 - anonymous (06/01/2012) [-]
Basically we are assigning arbitrary numbers to dimensions. Time could be 4th, 2nd, 13th, or whatever. The up/down, left/right, forward/back are most commonly known as the first three dimensions, with time as the fourth. (As an interesting aside, that is why we can never move at the speed of light. Our mass moves through all 11-13 (depending on which theory is actually valid) dimensions at the speed of light as the total. So we would have to have no mass to move at the seed of light. Photons and gravitons (no I did not make that word up) have no mass and therefore move at the speed of light.)

The 4th dimension, in simple terms, is a part of time. It is a part of time for our 3 dimensions, but not for the other dimensions. It basically sets our standard. The actual time dimension is not in an Euclidean space, which the 4d is in.

If a person were in the 4th dimension, they could see all of us 3d people. There would be numerous 3 dimensions, for example, there are many copies of your exact room. The person can see all of these at the same time like we can see the objects in our rooms at the same time.

It's basically just a dimension higher than ours, it sees things and does things much like we do with 2d objects but instead with 3d objects. It could be in or pass through your room, but you'd see it as a 2d object due to our mind's limitations. Like in the illustration, it would distort as you see different views.

alright mate

I had a big argument with someone in here about this exact gif some time last year.

Not a tesseract. Some cool, stretchy, bendy cube-like thing, yes. But still not a tesseract.

How isn't this a tesseract? It's an 8-cell one. There's one of the cubes below. It's hard to track as it moves, but..
