    The statement that the 4th D (including time) is gravity started to appear on the internet in December 1999. Since then there's been some irresolute controversy ('Gravity is the 4th dimension') pro and con ('gravity cannot be a dimension'). Presuming it's not a revolution, is there a resolution?

    a dimension is a way to seperate things, either space, time or anything else that can keep things apart. gravity is a force, or bending of spacetime. therefor gravity cant be a dimension

    Gravity from my understanding is just the "shadow" of the fourth dimension.

    It is neither a revolution, nor a resolution, but an aberration, or an affectation.
