“The Four Dimensions in our everyday life” was the title of a fascinating lecture delivered by Hon. Nina Nováková, a member of the Czech Parliament, at an event hosted by UPF Prague at the Peace Embassy on 28th June 2024. 

Ms Nováková remarked that there are four dimensions in the observable universe: three spatial dimensions - length, width and depth, and one time dimension. This dimension is unidirectional; time is constantly passing but we do not know when it began.

In addition to the physical environment characterized by three dimensions, man has a more internal dimension: desires, a will and the ability to reflect on the future and make goals.

An emphasis on science alone is limiting and narrow if it fails to include internal dimensions and human responsibility. Some scientists do try to understand the whole, as Einstein did for example.

Viktor Emil Frankl from Austria was a neurologist, psychologist, and philosopher who founded logotherapy, a school of existential and humanistic psychotherapy. Logotherapy identifies man’s search for meaning to be the core motivating factor in life. Frankl, a Holocaust survivor developed logotherapy based on his own experience of making sense of his suffering even in the worst conditions.

We can use the fourth dimension in our search for the meaning of human life, inner values and the existence of the origin of the universe, concluded Ms. Nováková.

It is an indispensable part of our life, without which we would lose our human value.

The lecture was conducted in an interactive way and was well received by the audience.
