The human mind is incredibly limited in its' ability to intuitively grasp concepts beyond those for which we evolved (eating, reproducing, navigating our three-dimensional world). Our minds can't readily conceive of the universe's three dimensional expansion (and relation to the fourth dimension of time). This difficulty becomes even more profound when we consider models that include a greater number of dimensions, such as M-theory's 11-dimensional universe.

Is the teapot in your avatar an allusion to Russell?
It is . Bertrand Russell is one of my favorite 20th-century philosophers.
