    Imagine one big cube made up of smaller cubes which are each made up of smaller cubes which are made up of smaller cubes. Or as a library, the library as a whole is the first dimension, then each section is the second dimension, each letter in the alphabet dividing the books in each section is the third dimension, each book per letter is the fourth dimension. You can go even further by adding chapters, sections, paragraphs, lines, words, characters, etc...

    Of course, how you imagine the dimensions doesn't matter as long as you don't get confused when subscripting

    An object is bend, but the shape stays, so that the shortest distance between two points is 0.
