Further excursions "beyond the infinite" can be taken in my DA "Paleo & Sci Illo" gallery:[link]
How do you describe the indescribable? Who does one depict the unimaginable? This image is my hint at addressing such questions. These were raised in Kubrick & Clarke's "2001: a Space Odyssey". In the original script the alien "monolith" discovered was to be a tetrahedron, the first geometric solid. Later the 1:4:9 shape was used in the movie. This represented the squares of the first three prime integers.
Were there to be a remake of this film or its sequels I would envision CGI effects to take the original concept one step further and extrapolate the tetrahedron into higher dimensions.
What I depict here is the three dimensional shadow of a five(?) dimensional solid as it resides in space-time as we understand it. All sorts of quirky things are going on. Some of the light refrated through it are redshifted away from us, some "surfaces" (branes?) are blue shifted toward the viewer. Time itself may not be passing at the same rate in all facets. The point-of-view of this image, puts the viewer "inside" the solid. It should be considered a field of influence extrapolated away into infinity with this complex at its nexus. It would make for a spectacular star gate.
