that there is other direction besides left and right?
I was driving a screw and well, that was weird.
forward backward up down yaw in out over under through left past the underpass on route 60 just before the turnpike
lots of directions other than left and right
the fuck are you on?
right so there is a screw in a socket, i dont know proper english term for that, and i was driving it in at work, and for a moment i had this weird brainfart that i can screw it some other way than left and right.
and no you cant turn a socketed screw any other way
What KIND of other direction are we talking about here? Was it a spooky direction?
Normal people don't have random explainable feelings outside human comprehension. You cant tell me anything?
well, uh, not to sound like a weirdo but it didnt really feel 3d, i cant draw it on paper and even twisting the paper that i drew on doesnt really fit it, its like i were to twist the paper inside out (?) does that make any sense?
oh i know what your talking about and it can work but it depends on how long the screw is .
the other direction is hammer. you got turn hand left right and hammer
if the screw is to long you will probably split the wood if you use the hammer direction
it was zink steel and screw wont budge any other way than left or right since its guided by the socket, i tried everything.
i dont really get what you mean, do you have any images?
Kinda like this but make the large circle wrap around the screw and it turns
Perhaps a large portion of your particles did a quantum shift.
Theoretically there are more dimensions aside from ours, that being 3d.
Left right up down (ours)
Now imagine more directions but perpendicular to left and right (forward backward aren't perpendicular to left right they are merely manipulations of left right)
Imagine two more directions at right angles to the four you already know.
alright mate, youve lost me
? maybe im stupid but wouldnt it work normally?
well in my country in tech unis they they teach that left = counter-clockwise = plus direction
I can't relate specifically to the screw but I do get this 4th dimensional spacial hallucination, as I call it, and it makes me feel overwhelmed and nauseous. It is usually related with stress and anxiety and is totally incomprehensible and hard to put into language.
may be true, we had to finish the order soon since we were already after deadline so there was plenty of stress, i didnt feel nauseus then though, only now when im trying to get it
I get what you mean. Trying to wrap my head around some thing that I don't have words for creates this spinning, travelling feeling in my head, as if I'm travelling down a tunnel at light speed. It's like I'm a wheel spinning too fast for its bearings or a train derailing. Then I feel sick.
I often think about that and whether or not it's a good thing to indulge in these feelings.
Ok I can't draw so take a strip of paper and twist it a few times then connect the ends. Now imaging a screw that enters the center but instead of the screw turning the paper mobius screw turns or spins so the threads pull the screw in or out. Since metal can't bend this way I figure this would only happen to a 4th dimensional object.
I can imagine it, it does make me nauseous, but I don't see it having immediate 4D qualities. Just difficult to produce 3D ones. The nausea is probably the most interesting part.
Is there something I'm missing?
Here we go I found one kinda like my description. Like in the image except the arms attaching the gears are also screw threads that bend, which isn't really possible except with ver flexable materials.
Okay, I've got it. I was just thinking of this shape a couple days ago actually. I didn't connect the two immediately, but had a hunch when I saw the word "mobius loop" pass through the front page.
I was working on a theory of mine and the fact that you had the feeling pop up not shortly after confirms another unrelated theory. The fact that you added 4th dimension without this design having any real 4 dimensional qualities is the most interesting part, since I was attempting to use the model in question to create some 3 dimensional description of an event I'm trying to explain.
Got an email?
ooh so you meant something like that, i thought you wanted to put a screw inside a normal gear.
that doesnt really ring the bell though.
goddamnit the hardest part in it is that i dont know exactly how to describe it or what the hell it was
yeah except when it comes to locked screw there is only one plane it can rotate in and when it comes to rotation i assumed it was obvious that left means + (counter-clockwise) and right is -
But dude have you ever driven a screw by wobbling it in all directions dude.
It won't go in very pretty but it will dude. Just need enough pressure and acceleration for it to work.
Whaaaaat duuuuude whaaaat.
You callin me out duuuuude.
Not cool dude, putting a screw in is a simple concept.
The initial post could be "I was hammering nails in yesterday
and realised that maybe you can hammer a nail without hammering it.
Your intial post was to vague.
You could create a rotating head screw which gets driven by spherical rotations.
The screw would be different and the device needed to screw it in would be different.
A tool has a specific job.

One time when I was on cough syrup I thought I saw a new axis and everything was really disorienting and new and open feeling but my eyes could've just been crossed
I wish I could draw it but it's hard to even remember
