This is a cosmological question. If time is the fourth dimension, does not
gravity pull us through that dimension? That is, the high gravity of big bang
(all matter in a single point), so what pulls us forwards in time? If there is
no Big Crush (I read that the latest WMAP data indicates ever-expanding
universe), and time is another dimension, how can we be pulled towards it in the
fourth dimension? Does anyone really understand these dimensions?
