Imagining the Tenth Dimension

"Mind-boggling" is the right word for this video, which starts slow and ends with an existential "bang". See if you can keep up with it.

Make sure to check out a book by Rob Bryanton - there is a lot more there, what you've seen is only a summary of the first chapter...

Annular Solar Eclipse

"An annular eclipse occurs when the Sun and Moon are exactly in line, but the apparent size of the Moon is smaller than that of the Sun. Hence the Sun appears as a very bright ring, or annulus, surrounding the outline of the Moon."

'Imagining the Tenth Dimension', both the book and animation, are considered to be something he made up as he went along by serious physicists. Before buying the book check out the comments from people with a science background at Amazon.com. It looks pretty but it's not real science!

I second Eric's recommendation, and likewise Anon's word of caution. It is important to note that there are different *theories* of how higher dimensions are composed and related. Considering time as the 4th dimension is one theory, while spatial-symmetry relationships (right/left, normal/mirrored) form another approach. Rudy Rucker's book on the 4th dimension is a good intro to this.
