Question:
I already know the first four geometric dimensions, but I'm not clear on
the 5th and 6th geometric dimensions. Can you explain to me the 5th and
6th dimensions? And how they work

Replies:
If you mean how higher dimension spaces are handled in mathematics, it is
just an extension to 'n' dimension obeying the same algebra and calculus: An
'n' dimensional space is an ordered 'j'-tuple numbers: (n1,n2, n3,...nj)
obeying the rules of 3 dimensional numbers. In some of the operations that
follow it is necessary to take "cross terms" into account, then a new
algebra, tensor analysis it needed. If you are talking about higher order
dimensions that arise in theoretical cosmology, I defer to people more
knowledge than I.
