You may use this forum to post long articles or links to other higher dimensional websites.

I have copied Alkaline's list of links here, into one page rather than lots. Feel free to reply to suggest new links to add to this list, but I will delete your post after adding it to keep it tidy.

My web site (polygloss) has moved: it's now http://www.os2fan2.com/gloss/index.html ,

One might look at 'time as a fourth dimension' in http://www.os2fan2.com/gloss/pghtime.html
The dream you dream alone is only a dream
the dream we dream together is reality.
