The physical world has at least four dimentions
The standard three in which we have unlimited movement
plus "Time" in which we have restricted movement.
I have heard of a fifth dimention but can't recall it at present!

BTW this problem would be solved alot easier if the ACME insant Hole
had a "This Way Up" note on it.
