…what we are is intemporal,
just as what we appear to be is temporal,
and intemporality is what constitutes the Nth dimension,
which, as ‘N’, also represents Noumenon.

‘n’, or ‘nth’, is sometimes used in the notes as an acronym for ‘now’, ‘this’, ‘here’. Mathematically speaking, ‘n’ is a term that means ‘to the limit’, ‘unto infinity’. It’s often used to denote an unknown degree or dimension of existence.

But since all mathematical measurements are necessarily taken from the position of the measurer, who is inevitably now and here, perhaps my usage of the term differs little, in essence, from the mathematician’s. Perhaps the elusive ‘nth dimension’ is, after all, to be found right here and now, in this inescapable present thusness?

The Nth Dimension, although itself no more than a conceptual analysis
of what we appear to be, is one that leads us directly and inevitably
to the noumenal source of our appearance which is, therefore,
what we are and all that we are.
