      This is a really good question. We, humans, associate space with time, even if we don’t consciously realize it. When you think of space (the other dimensions) you think about moving in it, traveling on a car or walking. But that needs also the concept of time, as movement is a path in not only space but also time.

      The human experience is fundamentally connected with time, so it is really hard to define anything outside of it. But if time stopped, well you’d still have a completely static universe, with all there is in it, like a photograph. Things existing frozen, but still there. Whether that has any use or not is a very hard question: What is useful? What is not?

      Again, this is an awesome question, and sometimes we think of stuff like and they lead to a new project or a new idea that then we try to figure out and think about more precisely.
