Einstein in his theory of relativity talked about four dimensions. Three being length, width & height and Time (or time-space) being the fourth one. After wracking my brains for considerable amount of time, I decided to forego the attempt to understand what it means. So, let me keep it simple. Let me reduce it to three. Hence, as I see it, we all live 3D lives, where time, space and mind act as three dimensions like length, width and height.
Time – Major concern. Scare and always valuable. Each one of us is equal before this dimension. When we have it, we don’t value it. But when we don’t, we crave to have more of it. We are governed by time as a dimension of our life.
Space – No, please do not relate it with square foot area. Any ways that has become very expensive everywhere. Here what I mean is mental space. Space to do what we feel like doing, saying and embracing. Space to think, act, rethink and react. This second dimension of life decides what we are and also what we shall be.
Mind – We are what we think. Mind connects us to the world outside. It is the bridge between outside and inside. Mind is that dimension which decides how we lead our lives. It is both the cause and the effect.
I can’t think of the fourth one. Let us call this unknown variable as ‘X’. Perhaps that’s what people sometimes call as God. Time-space intersection which leads to curvature in our 2D life adding some gravity to it.
