Objects move through three dimensions in space. But a wide range of experiments that manipulate atoms, molecules, and light can engineer artificial matter in ways that break even that basic law of nature. Such matter can behave as if it were extended to four or more spatial dimensions or restricted to just one or two, as determined by experimental design.
