We are 3 dimensional beings who perceive our universe as a 3 dimensional universe but time is considered a fourth dimension. If we can perceive time wouldn't that make us 4 dimensional beings?

That's a great question. While I'm not an expert, I would say the quick answer is yes. However, the most interesting point (to me) is "If we can perceive..." Most of us agree that is indeed how we see things, but time can be understood as an invented arbitrary device (I know, I know, you can argue this point for days, but consider how animals view time, or perhaps how Navajo Indians regard time and you get the idea that our perception is tied to our belief in reality -- in other words, we are participants in creating reality). What we choose to believe becomes our measuring stick for perception. Personally, I see myself as multi-dimensional. Well-rounded. Ha!

So I guess it comes down to a persons own perception of their reality. I wonder if a persons linear perception of time vs a nonlinear perception of time makes any difference in a persons dimensional existence rather they are aware of that difference or not. On the other hand time as we understand it is something we have made up and therefore has no real effect on our actual physical existence... Or does it? I am no expert either but its something to think about.

To a pig, I would imagine, it's always time to eat. When it gets dark, it's time to sleep. And so on.
