### Life by the Numbers

*Seeing is Believing* video: Modern artists and mathematicians are trying to grapple with the 4th physical dimension. Mathematics helps define
space and helps present visions of our world to us. and *Shape of the World* video: Viewers see how mathematics has become a
tool to explore the heavens as the cosmos is charted.
The people in the video:

Actor Danny Glover: Narrator, Art Historian Linda Henderson, Artist Pablo Picasso, Mathematician Dufret, Mathematician Tom Banchoff, Artist Tony Robbin, Astrophysicist Rob Kirshner,
Mathematician Robert Osserman,
Physicist Albert Einstein,
Mathematician George Riemann, Mathematician Jeff Weeks
- How do people in the video talk about, explore or represent
**higher dimensions**
(analogies, visual representations...)? For instance - Henderson uses x-rays and invisible realities as an analogy.

- What are ways that the researchers model and explore the
**geometry of the universe**? For example, Riemann and Einstein used a
higher dimensional sphere.
Also list any experiments in detail.

- What are connections to the theme of
**local to global**?
