Welcome to Part Five of the Higher Dimensions Series, where we explore some of the strange and delightful curiosities of higher dimensional space. Currently, I have completed Parts One, Two, Three, Four, and Five, with hopefully more to come. If you have not already done so, I encourage you to read the earlier parts before continuing on with our current expedition.

For the first time, we will be encountering a more practical implication of the bizarre phenomena we’ve been seeing. Granted, I mean practical with regard to applied statistics, not so much to the mundanities of everyday life. Those of…


Welcome to Part Four of the Higher Dimensions Series, where we explore some of the strange and delightful curiosities of higher dimensional space. Currently, I have completed Parts One, Two, Three, Four, and Five, with hopefully more to come. If you have not already done so, I encourage you to read the earlier parts before continuing on with our current expedition.

Today we will be entering the world of probability theory to try and shed a bit of light on some of the bewildering phenomena we have encountered in earlier parts of the series. My mind was completely blown the…


Welcome to Part Three of the Higher Dimensions Series, where we explore some of the strange and delightful curiosities of higher dimensional space. Currently, I have completed Parts One, Two, Three, Four, and Five, with hopefully more to come. If you have not already done so, I encourage you to read the earlier parts before continuing on with our current expedition.

Today we will be exploring a phenomenon that is somewhat related to what we saw in Part One of our journey. If you recall, that is where we examined what happens to the distance between the origin and points…


Welcome to Part Two of the Higher Dimensions Series, where we explore some of the strange and delightful curiosities of higher dimensional space. Currently, I have completed Parts One, Two, Three, Four, and Five, with hopefully more to come.

If you have not already done so, I encourage you to read Part One before continuing on with Part Two, especially if you consider yourself to be unsure of what I mean when I say higher dimensional space. We build up some concepts and tools there that will be very helpful for our journey today. Anyway, in Part One, we saw…

I took a course in linear algebra and it completely blew my mind. It introduced me to what has become one of my most cherished intellectual pleasures: thinking about higher dimensional spaces. When I tell people how excited I get when I think about higher dimensional space, they tend to think that I’m a weirdo, but they also tend to interpret…
