A few weeks ago, a listener wrote in with this question: "Can you please give me a brief description of the space-time continuum? As you probably know, we live in space, which Lucky Me - Various - Nouveautés Hiver 2006 a 3-dimensional thing.
The fact that space is 3-dimensional means that you can move in three different ways. You could think of those as side-to-side, up and down, or forwards and backwards. Scientists usually assign letters to those directions: x, y, and z. So if you move 4 steps to the right, you would move 4 steps along the x direction or the x "axis" as scientists call it. Cryogenics - Create - Space Time Continuum you move 4 steps to the left, you would move 4 steps along the negative or opposite x axis.
Of course you can also move diagonally, but this is really just a combination of two or more of those three ways of moving.
So if you took one step forward and to the right, you would be moving along the x axis and z axis at the same time. Stand in the Place Where you Live Let's imagine that the middle of your living room is the centre of the universe. This location is called the origin. We'll also say that if you move Cryogenics - Create - Space Time Continuum or south from that spot, you're moving along the x axis, if you move up or down, you're moving along the y axis, and if you move east Cryogenics - Create - Space Time Continuum west you're moving along the z axis.
We could write the coordinates or location of your current position like this: 0, 0, 0. It doesn't matter as long as we're consistent with our measurements. The direction we assigned to x, y, and z also don't matter, as long as we keep them the same during our discussion. We could have just as easily said that z means left and right instead of x. Space-time adds a 4th dimension to this idea. Jump to Navigation. What Is the Space-Time Continuum? Everyday Einstein explores the 4 dimensions of the space-time continuum.
