So, you animate with 2D stuff.

Actually I use a 3ds Max plugin called Illustrate! to render 3d objects so that they look 2D.

Fourth dimension is not animating. Fourth dimension is real but its too hard to explain. I saw documental video about 4th dimension today but im too lazy to post link. There can be also unlimited dimensions.

At the risk of repeating myself, "The fourth dimension, time, is the 'key' component in animation."

Ppl like to claim that timespace is not the 4th dimension simply because it is not Euclidian. So what? I contend that being non-Euclidian is what makes it the 4th dimension.

BTW, even when Euclidian-like 4th dimension proponents try to explain their theories they have to resort to using ANIMATIONS (see tesseract rotation), which CANNOT exist without a time component.

Finally, Minkowski time-space-as-4th-dimension is the theory most easily allied with Einstein's special relativity. And Doctor Emmet Brown consistently refers to the 4th dimension as being time. You wanna argue with THE COMBINED GENIUS of EINSTEIN and DOC BROWN?

Good luck with that future boy!

Lol. Dumb? This from someone whose rebuttal consists of linking to youtube videos?

Speaking of dumb, your "Also 4d cube" link is known by more knowledgeable people than you as a tesseract rotation.

In fact, I mention it by name to support my argument. Then you link to it, wholly unaware of the fact that it supports my argument. Priceless.
