Eclipses in 4D

Ideas about how a world with more than three spatial dimensions would work - what laws of physics would be needed, how things would be built, how people would do things and so on.

Eclipses in 4D

This one is easy. Eclipses would never occur in most 4D systems. The 2D ecliptic planes of the sun and moon have to have a line as their intersection, or at least nearly so. This is seldom the case. In those rare systems where eclipses can occur, the frequency of eclipses would be the same as in 3D.
