Simple queries on intersection of hypersurfaces
Posted:
Jul 14, 2009 2:52 AM


Our universe is sometimes conjectured to be a fourdimensional hyper surface. Imagining that it may be a fourdimensional surface of a hyper sphere, I am trying to get a rough picture of the locus of the intersection of such a universe with another fourdimensional universe of the same kind, ie: which is also the surface of a hypersphere.
Would the zone of intersection be a 41 dimensional object by definition (having three dimensions), and yet would it also be a surface?
And I wonder what such an intersection might look like to observers in our universe.
cheers, stargene
