The Mathematics of Higher Dimensional Spheres will Blow Your Mind

Think back to your days in calculus, do you remember working in 3 dimensions or maybe even 4? Wrapping our minds around the expanding variables of higher dimensions can be a little difficult, to say the least. When we start looking at even higher dimensions, like the 9th or 10th dimension in mathematics, things get even crazier.

Take for example the problem proposed in the video below. At the end of the mathematical solution, we are presented with the idea that a 10-dimensional sphere is somehow bigger than the box that is containing it. The sphere is bigger, but somehow, it still fits in a box that is smaller. That’s probably a little confusing with no context, so if you’d like to understand and really would like your mind to be blown, check out the video below.
