# Is it possible to somehow simulate or implement higher dimensions (more than 3 dimensions) using a programming language?

If it is possible can someone please provide some idea that how it can be implemented?

we sure can make more than just 2 or 3 dimensional arrays, for example a 4 dimensional array; to explain it easily itās a 1-dimensional array containing 3 dimensional elements so to speak, each row contains a 3 dimensional array (this is the easiest I can explain), for a 5 dimensional array, same counts but itās a 2-dimensional array that has 3 dimensional arrays inside it, so each row, col contains 3 dimensional arrays.
hereās an example of a 4 dimensional array in c#:

Although I cannot think of any application of it.
hope this helps!

Like a tesseract? It's kinda mind boggling but amazing at the same time. And obviously yes, you can create one by yourself.

itās hard to visualise something which does not exist, i tried to explain it as best as I could but a tesseract, no, this is how we visualise it in the human world, a computer doesnāt behave in the same way.

Joery De Loose, thanks for your answer, you said right that multi dimensional arrays are not necessarily practical to apply anywhere because we live in a 3 dimensional world, but they could be useful designs or models to store lesser dimensions .
For example- we might make a model of an animation. An animation consists of time varying images or frames, i.e. an array of images.
Each image is a 2 dimensional array and each element of array may represent a color.
Furthermore a color might have multiple components ,like- blue, red, green, black and white.

for this we can already use jagged arrays which is an array of arrays which should in practise be better.
