Journey to the 4th dimension

There is an incredible series of videos called Dimensions available online that explore the 4th dimension using mathematics. The first half of the series is extremely accessible and allows even a mathematically inept person to understand the shape of 4 dimensional space. The second half of the series delves into complex numbers and spheres where the material is a little more complex but overall the creators of this series have simplified the concepts using excellent visual tools. Personally I think learning complex mathematical concepts has been made infinitely easier by the Dimensions series and I cannot wait for the next series.

I am still mesmerized myself. I watched all the videos straight through. I hope more educational videos like this are to come on the net. It has the ability to cast complex knowledge far and wide.
