Dear students of the 4th Dimension,
Please find a link to a book below, published 08. 08. 08. which I believe will be of great interest and importance to you all.
The Tome of Seus contains several allegorical threads, one of which pertains to scientific matters. The book gradually reveals the fourth dimension of space to be the scale or radius of the expanding universe, thereby presenting the fourth dimension as being no more complex in nature than the three dimensions that we are already familiar with.
In a nutshell: to specify a point in space from here on Earth, the coordinates x, y and z (relating to 3D space) must be quoted. For an observer standing outside of our expanding universe, the additional dimensions of r and t must be considered, where r is the radius of the universe at t, the time that the point is determined.

In the course of writing his book: Relativity, The Special and General Theory, Einstein considered the concept of an expanding universe, as hypothesised by the Russian mathematician Friedman and supported by the research of the astronomer Hubble. However, Einstein went on to dismiss the theory because, based on a single measurement made by Hubble, he calculated that the ‘Big Bang’ occurred only 10 to the power of 9 years ago, which is far too short a time. What Einstein failed to consider was the simple possibility that the rate of expansion might not be constant. Had he used two measurements, separated by a gap of several years, he would have arrived at an entirely different conclusion.
You may be interested to read that the author of The Tome of Seus has encoded many other messages within the text.
I do hope you will find the time to read this manuscript, enjoy deciphering the allegories and consider introducing others to this book, thereby playing your most important of parts in the proposals for our future that Tome of Seus presents.
With heartfelt regards,
Dougal Benet on behalf of the author
