Talk:Seven-dimensional space

I suggest a move of all except the first and last paragraphs of the lede to 7-dimensional space, and remove those things which can be said of all n-dimensional spaces. No reason for an ordinal dimension. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 08:49, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

There are important uses of seven-dimensional space in physics and mathematics. Now, where do you propose those go? Surely a reader going here would want to know about 7D space's uses? 4 = 2 + 2 04:19, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

Technical tag[edit]

@Jdcrutch: I removed your technical tag because the article is actually quite non-technical by comparison to similar mathematics articles. But can you explain which parts you found unclear so that they can perhaps be improved? --Sammy1339 (talk) 03:08, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

I'm afraid the whole thing is unclear to me, from the lede onwards. I got here by clicking on "Random article", which took me to a page I can't remember (something about a seven-dimensional cube—very pretty designs), but that linked to Uniform 7-polytope, which linked to this article, which I took to be the most basic treatment of the subject that I'd find on Wikipedia, and it still completely baffled me. I was hoping to find something that would help me understand how there can be seven-dimensional space.
I never got past second-year algebra in high school, so probably I'm doomed to be baffled by most of the mathematical articles on Wikipedia; but it occurs to me that there ought to be a way to present the concept of >3-dimensional space so that a layman can have at least some inkling as to what's being talked about. It probably wouldn't be appropriate in this article, but a reader should be able to click through to it from this article by following a logical series of links to ever-more-basic concepts. That seems like a job for a WikiProject, though, and not an individual editor. Anyway, thanks for taking notice, at least. J. D. Crutchfield | Talk 21:01, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
