any dimensional cube
benji10 (22)

The program will create a cube in any dimensions and display it. repl.it will only allow up to 5 dimensions though. Press "p" to toggle perspective which could change the whole view. Press "space" to only show verticies. My second repl. Have fun!

Aww, I wanted to finally see a 1 dimensional object. ahh whatever, definitely worth the upvote! Good work!

@StudentFires a 1d object is just a length (i.e. a line)

xxpertHacker (768)

@CodingCactus Nope, a line is 2D. That is what I can't get about 1D. There can't be 1D objects. 1D is more of a concept.

CodingCactus (4087)

@StudentFires no, 1d is one dimension like height is 1d
i believe

xxpertHacker (768)

@CodingCactus Lies, the 1D line is still 2D, we can measure the width of it. It's width needs to be 0 or NaN, then it would be 1D, but also unseeable.

That 0 is totally incorrect.

xxpertHacker (768)

@CodingCactus That is how it is in mathematics, but math is just a human constructed conceptual system that can be used to assist us with physical, natural objects.

Those are the conceptual dimensions.

@StudentFires ik about the 0, it's just a picture off the internet, but I think of 1d like one of the edges of your garden or something?

xxpertHacker (768)

@CodingCactus Here's the thing, look at this character:

It is a line, right? Of course it is!

But... we can measure it's width, thus it is a thin rectangle, thus 2D.

CodingCactus (4087)

@StudentFires yes, but what is the width of one of the lengths of your garden?

xxpertHacker (768)

@CodingCactus Well, I don't have a garden, but a normal 2D object's length can be measured, it is an attribute of the object (garden), but it cannot exist on it's own. It is a real thing though.

Thus we wouldn't be able to see it.

@CodingCactus Like I said, stuff gets complicated fast.

CodingCactus (4087)

I give up. Some of my brain just fell out of my ear, so i'm going to stop now.

@CodingCactus To a being of the dimension, eg: square 2D being, or 3D being, cude, the object would appear totally normal to the being. As we are 3D beings, everything <= 3D is "normal" for us. We aren't supposed to perceive objects of 0D < nD > 3D .

@CodingCactus good that my 5D cube looks like that one! I didn't actually know what a 5D cube would look like.

@benji10 I don't blame you, it's not every day you look at 4D+ objects, is it?
