Fourth Dimension

Book cover
By: (1853-1907)

Fourth Dimension by Charles Howard Hinton is a thought-provoking exploration of the concept of higher dimensions and their implications for our understanding of reality. Hinton presents complex mathematical ideas in a clear and accessible way, making this book a great introduction to the topic for readers of all backgrounds.

Hinton's discussion of the fourth dimension goes beyond its mathematical definition to explore how it could potentially change our perception of space, time, and consciousness. He challenges readers to think outside the box and consider the possibility of other dimensions existing beyond our three-dimensional world.

While some of the ideas presented in Fourth Dimension may be difficult to fully grasp, Hinton's engaging writing style and use of illustrations help to make the material more digestible. Overall, this book is a fascinating journey into the realm of higher dimensions that will leave readers questioning their own perception of reality.

Book Description:
"Mr Hinton tries to explain the theory of the fourth dimension so that the ordinary reasoning mind can get a grasp of what metaphysical mathematicians mean by it. If he is not altogether successful, it is not from want of clearness on his part, but because the whole theory comes as such an absolute shock to all one's preconceived ideas" - The Bristol Times .

This book was published in 1912. The author is attempting to communicate a very complex interweaving of philosophy and mathematics, and it is often difficult to follow his train of thought. However, it is hard to refute his idea of a four dimensional universe passing through and, in a way, creating our three dimensional one.

For sections 1-9, the reader attempted to describe the illustrations in the text, but as the pictures were getting more complex, a separate PDF file of illustrations was created, copied from the pages of the book. It can be downloaded from the catalog page on archive.org or via the link "Extracted illustrations of the book" on the left side below.
