Carl Sagan Explains Multiple Dimensions


By on 9:00 AM


While the idea of multiple dimensions might not immediately seem relevant to a website about extraterrestrials -- unless of course, the extraterrestrials are from another dimension -- questions about the shape of the universe get thrown around often enough when discussing space that I figured it might be worth it to post a nice little video discussing the subject. And who better to explain a topic as complicated as multiple dimensions than the late, great, master of simplification Carl Sagan.

What's really wonderful about this video is Sagan's ability to take a subject so beyond the minds of everyday people and explain the basic concept in a concise, simple way. Additionally, the way he describes the meeting between the Apple and the resident of Flatland -- and the strangeness of the situation from the square's point of view -- is reminiscent one of my favorite short stories, The Thought War.
