How can I follow in the footsteps of Izzo without an Armored Core mecha!? I decided to take the Crest and add my own style! The name ProCRESTinator comes from the fact that I kept on holding off the construction. This mecha was a huge challenge due to my lack of parts! I had to use minifig legs as joints! I have also feature my theory on how to vizualize 4-D. Of course the picture has to be a 2-D representation of a 3-D representation of 4-D. I am only 15, and have possibly discovered what scientists can't!

My equation and theory of the 4th dimension:
Note to Will Thomas: I know the 4th Dimension has been visualized, but the equations the scientists made simply don't add up for me. I took the liberty of making my own equation. I think it adds up. Look at the pattern: 2 points, 4 lines, 6 squares, 8 cubes... The pattern adds up perfectly. Also notice how seeing a cube at an angle looks like a hexagon, and a tesseract at an angle: 4-sided square for 2-D, 6-sided hexagon for 3-D cube, and 8-sided octagon for a 4-D tesseract! See how it adds up? PS: I too am very, very annoyed about the fact that I have to use a stand due to the lack of stability, but I am so low on useful parts that I have almost no joint parts. I'm actually out of hinge pieces!
Makuta Bane: I know that it can't only be squares. If you adapt this equation to any shape, it still adds up. I just explained it using squarish objects. I have thought of a triangles and other shapes, simple modify the equation a bit based on the shape, and it still fits.
For a triangle you go: 1 point, 2 points in a line, 3 lines for a triangle, 4 triangles for a triangular 3-D shape (Don't know the name), and 5 triangular 3-D shapes for a triangular 4-D shape (Still don't know the name). You see the pattern? You just use basic counting. Depending on how many sides an object has, the number counted by changes. I think you count by 3 for a pentagon. Count by 1s for triangles, 2s for squares, 3s for pentagons, etc.
Makuta Bane (again)
They are not just simply added together. They're merged in a way we can't comprehend because our dimension doesn't support this merging. Look at how 2 points make a line, and how they're added together. Then look at how 4 lines makes a square, and how they're added together. Now look at how 6 squares make a cube, and how they're added together. Look at the pattern. Add together the basis of the previous dimension to find the next one. If 8 cubes were merged a certain way, we get a tesseract! Also think of how people in 2-D might think that that a 3-D cube appears as just a hexagon with a few more lines. We might just think a 4-D tesseract appears as just a bunch of cubes combined. Appearance may fool some, but I have looked beyond that.
My theory already shows the part about how the angle's effect the image of dimension.
Eric Buss: I'd need a reason for this not to add up, because it looks pretty solid to me. I don't know if it's doubted just by the general idea of a 15 year-old coming up with this, but I think I got it.
your theory of the forth dimension is very good however flawed. for there to be a forth dimension the theory would have to applied into all 3-D objects. the reason yours doesn't work is a sphere has the same measurements all around no points, faces, or edges.
I have come up with a different theory: Frequency, since every object in the world has it's own frequency this has to be taken into account, yes?. then this has the relative relation ship between time and the way it moves around the worldspace, this then means that the frequency of every single object is a relative to the objects around it. resulting in each force having a designated force that will always be able measured to come to an outcome that is relative to the other objects around it.
basically my theory does not have to do with measurement of an object but the way it reacts the objects around it.
Smooth work there, yet another whom strives as high as izzo. I build mechs like that too but with technic. unfortunately they wont be posted until I get a digital camera. I cant wait to show my version of the back grenade launcher. I say that because your model seems to have one and I like to see different ways to make the same thing. That's the beauty of legos, there's more than one way to build something! Sorry for the rant, well done with the mecha.
Not to dissapoint to you,but I am a liiiitle sceptic to the 4d stuff...maybe...After all,scientist dont have our fantasy!
To create you need an imprortant thing :Fantasy.
So maybe im not so sceptic anyway.
But I must admit I dont get it.
Good work my friend
you may have found the 4th demension but i guess you were kinda late. way back in 1940 it was stated that the 4th demension was discovered along with 5-infinity. its so simple its just a shape. i myself knew about that when i was 10 so i guess too late...but great moc!
Beautiful, absolutly and simply stunning. The only way to seperate this from an Izzo mech is the photography and a few details only a dedicated Izzo fan would noticed. You my friend (oh no! I'm starting to sound like John Mcain) are the best mech builder MOCpages has seen with the exeption of a few. Congrats on another breath-taking mech, your best yet! (BTW, I'll be posting a variation of Jas's racer on my site with a cockpit idea you might like to use in the future, check it out when I get around to posting it) (and as a last note, you should check out the latest Super Effective on VGcat.com, I think you'd get a kick out of it [and i must thank you, because you're the only reason I got it])
Xiazeran: I was not trying to disprove Phong's theory. I was trying to have an intelligent discussion (via MOCpages) about the problems and strong points of his theory. If that is flack, well, I'm sorry. For all I know, you could be right, and the 4th dimension could be the spiritual realm. We do not know.
Maby... I do not know. This has definitely been an interesting conversation. I guess it could be put together in a different way, but I would like to see how it would be done. I am not sure if somebody has already said it, but I will again anyways. To support the theory, if you look at a line (1-D) it looks like a dot. (no-D). If you look at a square a certain way (2-D), it looks like a line (1-D). Continue that pattern for 4-D, and it works. Because the nature of the tesseract, if you look at it in a certain way it will look 3-D (not that it already isn't). So, just something I have been thinking.
Hmmm. I was not sure it worked for other objects. It does add up, and I give you that. However, when you have 5 pyramids (I think that's what you were looking for) stacked together, it still makes a 3-D object: a bigger pyramid. I am not trying to prove you wrong or anything, just the way I see it.
This looks very nice, but like Nowhere man said, I think the photography needs a bit of work, or maybe just some digital enhancement. I just recently started using Photoshop for my MOCs, and it helps a lot. By the way, Iím not sure what youíre talking about when you say that you left a hole in your argument on Shannonís page. I donít know why you would do that on purpose, but tell me if I didnít catch it.
I like it

Awesome mech, and you seem to be quite a philosopher. (Or how ever do you spell it.)
Very nice. I think the legs look a bit too far apart, but I'm nit-picky like that. That is definitely an interesting theory, you have there. I guess it could be accurate, when you put it that way. However, 3-D does not just refer to cubes. If you have 2 pentagons on top of each other (like THE Pentagon), that would still have 3 dimensions. Still, it's something to think about. Glad you do at least.
4th Dimension? It's already been visualized and explained. You'll [probably] learn about it in Geometry next year. [I has ^^] And the mech is really hot, especially the head. I wish you didn't cheat with the stand holding it up, but it is quite fantastic. ~Will
It does look like an AC. You did a great job, I wish I could see it a little better though (my computer screen shows pictures darker than they are). Overall it's a nice piece of work.....and it's too early for me I think I shold have waited till I woke up to review this....
mwahaha, first commeent~
i getta bonuus~
ok, so sersly tho. i like it, but wheres the head? lol, still good...and makes me wonder...whats 'IZZO'?
ps, why the fourth dimension thing? uzzit hafta do with izzo?
