1. What does it mean to associate time as the fourth dimension along with the space being the third dimension.

I am just having a little difficulty in visualizing this concept a little.

Thanks for the reference friend.. :-D

5. hehe, I can do better than that, have all ten dimensions: Imagining The Tenth Dimension

6. What we understand of dimensions of space or time is dependent on how we either look ahead in constructing a theory of space-time, or how a theory of space-time that we have constructed demands that a certain number of dimensions must exist.

Initially, scientists all agreed on three dimensions for space and one for time, but with the advancement of their theories of space-time, that number of dimensions has changed according to "best-fit" scenarios that accommodate for their theories of space-time.

A dimension of space or time is purely a way we can apply a type of measurement of logic to the overall space-time mainframe that we are conscious of.

Physics teaches, officially, three dimensions of space and one dimension of time, because the other theories for space and time as dimensions are all assuming to be on the path towards a grand unified theory, which is beyond teaching abilities in a standard classical education system.
