The 5th Dimension

Monday, 09 April 2012   |   Creativity Games

3dThis week we're reimagining.

Game:  There are 3 random words below.  Use one or more of them as inspiration to suggest a possible 5th dimension and a unit of measurement for that dimension.  Aim to be humorous or witty.  (see below for more info)

  • cat
  • snore
  • briefcase

Challenge:  There is no challenge this week.

Strategy: There are the normal 3 dimensions and it has been suggested that the 4th dimension is time.  According to string theory there should be a total of 10 dimensions (or more depending on what you read).  Kinda hard for me to get my head around so I figured, let's have some fun with it.  I can't really find a good definition for dimensions so I'm going to propose the following.  A dimension is a plane (theoretical or physical) ,within which, things can exist.  Things tend to exist across multiple dimensions (height, width and depth for instance) and measuring the items existence on those planes gives coordinates that can be used to describe it's existence.  Playing about with perspectives is great for spurring creativity and this game is meant to be purely silly (ie not scientifically sound).  Think about different characteristics of things for which we could propose a plane exists and that we could measure  the objects existence on it.  A fun way to get some new angles of thought.
