    Space, at least, has been shown to be, to a high degree of precision, Euclidean. Of course, that's only an first approximation anyway, since mass bends space. In other words, it's none of the above.

    Just like there's an up from every point on a sheet of paper, the other dimensions are equally everywhere. The best theories at the moment say that those other dimensions are too small (much smaller than an atom) to perceive.

    All the time. Period. Anyone who says otherwise just doesn't get it. On the other hand, the math that does apply may be too complex to really be practical, may be unknown, or both, in which case a less mathematical description may be enough.

    I can't answer your last question at the moment.

    do you mean like picturing a square? a tesseract has 16 points, 32 lines, 24 faces, and 8 cubes... do you know that?
