How to measure the dimensionality
of the universe

How can you tell if the universe you’re living in is two-dimensional, three-dimensional or somewhere in between?

With the help of a two-dimensional crab and a three-dimensional crab, I’m going to explore a method that works for these crabs’ continuous universes.

Next time, I’ll be adapting the same method to measure the dimensionality of the graphs of Wolfram Physics, so that we can finally tell whether they’re three-dimensional, like our own universe.

If you’re looking for more on Wolfram Physics in the meantime, check out my second conversation with Karen Wong of The Meaning Code.

We talk more about space and time in Wolfram’s universe and, as ever, about what it all means!
