Could Visual Reorientation Illusions be 4d Related?

Discussions about how to visualize 4D and higher, whether through crosseyedness, dreaming, or connecting one's nerves directly to a computer sci-fi style.

You might enjoy this vid I made before I had ever heard of a VRI.

Well that was fun. Well done. :)

I’ve seen some of your other videos with regards to 4D animations on your other YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoFTI5DQgTCSm-Lz-VI8JKQ

It would be awesome to see some sort of an animation which would show a VRI and how it could be 4D related.

The turn is an instantaneous one. It is like looking at a Necker Cube flip, but one is actually inside the cube, and it is 3D all around you.

I made a picture kind of explaining it:

If we are actually 4D or higher, and we are surrounded by 4D or higher, but could only see a 3D “slice” of our surroundings at any time, but could see that 3D slice from different directions because of those other available directions, could VRIs be the way that we can do that? Rudy Rucker created a Neck-A-Cube model that would help to peer into 4D and it relies on a necker cube type of “twinkling arrangement” similar to the VRI.

VRIs made the news recently in this article:

If that universetoday link didn’t work, this might:

I’m hoping that someone can help to put all the pieces together and explain how VRIs and higher dimensions could be related.

I joined Twitter yesterday to learn more about VRIs.

As far as I know, VRIs involve the firing of Head Direction cells in the brain.

I have been following researchers in the field of spatial navigation and hope to learn more about the phenomenon.
