# if you sqaure a line it would make a square and if you squared a square you would get a cube so a cube square is too complex to draw so it could be time? (a wrinkle in time)

The voters have decided that thedoctormerlin is

**wrong**! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.
Only when you draw it in a time macne.

What he means is this.

The 2D version of a line is a square.

The 3D version of a square is a cube.

So what's the 4D version of a cube?

Before we know that though, we have to know (and thus have scientists agree on) what the 4th degree is considered to be to all scientists.

Let's rephrase this mathematically.

A line of value x is squared, result being x

^{2}. The geometric shape representing this is your common square, because the area of the square just happens to be x^{2}. Now take the value of x^{2}and square it again to get a cube. In a situation like this, you multiply the powers(here, x^{2}^{2}, or better put (x^{2})^{2}). The result is x^{4}. However, the volume of a cube is only three dimensional and is represented by x^{3}. You've already messed up your logic, but if it weren't bad enough, you suggest squaring it again- ((x^{2})^{2})^{2}- for the fourth dimension. The trend appears to be that the first dimension is a power of one, the second of two, the third of three, etcetera. Therefore, the fourth dimension (you call it time, but some dispute that time is a full dimension) is x^{4}. However, as you can see, we are up to x^{8}, which while possibly a dimsension is not technically anything we could recognize.Basically, your math is wrong and the fourth dimension is already called time (but some say this is wrong.)

Have a nice day!

... wait what?

The square of a square is not a cube.

You technically can't draw a cube.

The fact that you can't draw it has nothing to do with complexity.

square

), amirite?*so could it be time?

"Square" doesn't look like a word anymore.

Yeah I dont know why this is on the homepage.

OP is from the futer.

Eh...the fourth dimension technically is time, if that's what te point of your question was. It's not a line

^{4}though.I don't even remember making this post...
