Diagram from Hinton’s The Fourth Dimension (1904) – Source. quantum flux ufo engine WOW! Seti Signal data shows how to do minkowksi spacetime travel
He first used it an 1888 book called A New Era of Thought, and initially used the spelling tessaract. In Greek, “τεσσάρα”, meaning “four”, transliterates to “tessara” more accurately than “tessera”, and -act likely comes from “ακτίνες” meaning “rays”; so Hinton’s use suggests the four rays from each vertex exhibited in a hypercube and neatly encodes the idea “four” into his four-dimensional polytope. However, in Latin, “tessera” can also mean “cube”, which is a plausible starting point for the new word.
Hinton also promises that when the visualisation is achieved, his cubes can unlock hidden potential. “When the faculty is acquired — or rather when it is brought into consciousness for it exists in everyone in imperfect form – a new horizon opens. The mind acquires a development of power”.
the idea girl says
now maybe all the visible light instructions coming up in the wow! seti signal formula’s will make MORE sense!
I’ve never seen this before. Thanks to those of you who finally put the fourth dimension information on WIKIpedia for me to look at!
I found this today – Dec 3, 2015.
I’ve been STUMPED by the CUBE, MATRIX diagrams in blue book 3! Now it’s making some sense after seeing this. WOW! were going to learn how to do deep space travel in a Fourth Dimension. Awesome! Happy dance!!!!
