The Fourth Direction & Klein Bottle Theory!
We move up & down, left & right, back & fourth... But what comes next? If you think time is related with the fourth dimension then the new directions would be before & after. Then in all dimensions the 'time' direction is always the following one (ex. time moves in the direction of the 3rd dimension to 2 dimensional beings). This is why we can't move through time, because we don't move in a 4th direction. Actually the fourth dimension could serve as the 'time' direction for all dimensions, but it really doesn't matter.
A Klein Bottle is a figure with a single closed surface and no interior. The bottle is what you get when you connect the sides of a Mobius strip. It is impossible in the 3rd dimension without intersecting. But maybe it is possible to be a perfectly fine object of the 4th dimension which means that 'time' may not actually be the direction of the 4th dimension. Most importantly, whatever the 4th direction is, we can't get there... YET, so it doesn't really matter. Perhaps this 4th direction is the direction we go to get to heaven or hell (which could be contained in bubbles of curved space). Hopefully these following picture should be demonstrative, and interesting.

This grid picture of the Klein Bottle which should explain more:
A mathematician confided That a Mobius band is one-sided, An you'll get quite a laugh If you cut one in half For it stays in one piece when divided. "A mathematician named Klein Thought the Mobius band was divine Said he "If you glue The edges of two You'll get a weird bottle like mine" Three jolly sailors from Bladon-on-Tyne Went to sea in a bottle by Klein: Since all the sea was inside the hull They found the voyage exceedingly dull.
