- How do people in the video talk about, explore or represent
**higher dimensions**
(analogies, visual representations...)? Be specific -
for instance - Henderson uses x-rays and invisible realities as an analogy...

- What are ways that the researchers explore the
**geometry of the universe**?
Also list any experiments in detail.
