A room in 4D would work the same way, just with an extra direction. Going back to 2D vs 3D again, let's look at a 2D man in a 2D room. In his universe, he is completely enclosed by thick, opaque walls, but we can still easily see him. (he doesn't know this, though. even though we have a clear line of sight, he us unable to even look in our direction, or even conceive of the direction from which we are looking at him. kinda makes you wonder if 4D people are watching you right now ). To prevent this, he would need 3D walls that stretch outside his universe, that he could never build, see, or even imagine.

From our perspective, of course, he would be precariously close to falling to his doom, were he not locked into 2D space. In the same way, a 4D person looking at you might have the impression that you were constantly on the brink of falling out of the universe, even if all you see is solid ground or walls in all directions.

Of course, I can't begin to actually visualize a 4D room. The best I can do (so far) is understand why I can't understand it.

Exactly, I understand the mechanisms of how it would work, but I can't begin to picture them. I could easily work it out mathematically and tell you what those numbers mean for our 4D man, but I cannot begin to translate that math into anything meaningful to my mind's eye. Any analogy we may make between the 2D/3D relation we understand does not do justice to the infinitely more complex 3D/4D relation, so to me it just feels like a cop-out answer. Admittedly, it's probably the best we'll ever be able to do but it just isn't a satisfying answer for me.

yeah, but the stuff i said happened for real, those guys really are in a mental hospital, one of them keeps seeing spiders everywhere. Now, i dont live in the US so maybe some dealers call acid to something that is not. How do i know that what im getting is quality and is in fact acid?
