### What is the fifth dimension in A Wrinkle in Time?

tesseract

“Well, the fifth dimension’s a tesseract. You add that to the other four dimensions and you can travel through space without having to go the long way around. In other words, to put it into Euclid, or old-fashioned plane geometry, a straight line is not the shortest distance between two points.”

**Is a Tesseract real?**

But let me tell you this: The tesseract is an actual geometric concept, or rather, a shape that exists in 4D. It’s not just a blue cube from the Avengers… it’s a real concept. But before we explain a tesseract in detail, let us start from the bottom.

## What does tessering mean in the book?

Extrapolating that idea to how humans move through space, “tessering” is a form of traveling — of wrinkling space and time — to get to faraway locations in a very short time. The book uses a fifth-dimensional device called a “tesseract” to whisk people from place to place.

### What is tessering in A Wrinkle in time?

Tessering, a significant part of the fiction of A Wrinkle in Time, is a mode of travel in the fifth dimension that utilizes the shortest route. It can be used in space and in time.

### How do you make a tesseract?

A tesseract is in principle obtained by combining two cubes. The scheme is similar to the construction of a cube from two squares: juxtapose two copies of the lower-dimensional cube and connect the corresponding vertices.
