Is energy one dimentional space moving through 3D space?
Do I have this right?
1D space moves through 2D space to produce energy waves.
Energy moves through 3D space to produce matter.
3D space moves through 4D space to produce time.
4D space moves through 5D space to produce choice/chance
Light is the observable effect of energy in motion.

Space is an expression of the 3D universe.
Adding time would create a worm-like structure as the object existed though time. So time can be called the 4th dimension, Einstein preferred to think of the space-time fabric though.
For Einstein’s Theory of Relativity to work there needs to be at least 7 dimensions. The math is too complex to go into and too complex for me to understand but using atomic clocks based on air planes and the space shuttle we have proved it is true. Therefore there are at least 7 dimensions.
String Theory and M-Theory the fundamental theories of how the universe is made requires 20+ dimensions to work, but we haven't proven that works or is true.
I once wrote a science fiction story about a creature with access to a higher dimension and I said that higher dimension was an expression of energy levels; mechanical, kinetic, potential, chemical etc. By partially translating themselves into those higher dimensions it makes it very hard to reach, injure, kill or even affect them. However, we really have no idea what the higher dimensions are. It seems that each dimension is a measurement so a dimension of the measurement of energy levels is not a far fetched one.
Gravity is the strongest force in the universe yet it can be defeated by a tiny refrigerator magnet. One theory for this is that it could a force that is being expressed from a higher dimension and so appears weaker. Einstein saw it not as a dimension but a distortion in the normal space-time continuum. His analogy was that if you pretended 3D space and time was a 2D rubber sheet then if you dropped a big weight on the rubber sheet, like a bowling ball, the fabric of space would distort around it. Thus anything that hits the edge of that indentation would be sucked in. If you moved it fast enough it could orbit the item. With next to no friction (like in space) the object would keep orbiting. But, this is a thought experiment and an analogy. It doesn't mean that gravity is another dimension. It is not a far fetched idea though.
Light is a packet of energy with no mass, which is hard to understand. We know it goes through the normal 4 dimensions we experience but it wouldn't have any impact in a dimension of gravity. However, light pressure is one method of propulsion in space; a slow one, but one with a constant acceleration.

you can visualize this dimensional shift using geometry.
A point would be more like the 1D.
A line would be more like 2D
several lines forming a 3D object, like a tetrahedron or platonic solid.
4D being like what another fellow here described, like a wormhole...spacially present. One point of 3D space connected to another through observation or likewise. Or the 3D object, like a person looking out into space...it's the 4th dimension being experienced.
Energy can be any of these levels...the lowest being at the single dimension...and lowest dimension also means lowest vibration. Highest energy being higher dimension or higher vibration. So as you go upward in dimension you are getting more energetic.
So energy can be in any dimension, but the levels will change from one dimension to the next. Energy is characteristic of the dimension it resides. Obviously for 3D and 4D we can generate heat, as it takes 3D interactoin and also time to radiate. Would heat be present in lower dimension? Not likely. Heat is a vibration...infrared, just under the red end of the EM spectrum. That is a high frequency...that tells you something about the dimension/frequency relationship.

Think in terms of pressure:
Multiply by 1 (distance/distance):
p=force*distance/area*distance= k * work (or energy)/volume
p= k (e/V)
K is just a constant of proportionality
So pressure can be thought of as a force applied to a two dimensional surface of a vessel or as energy (in the form of heat or kinetic movement) trapped inside a closed 3-D space of a vessel. Since pressure would be measured on all the sides of the vessel's surface means energy is exerted in at least all three of our dimensions.
If you multiply by 1 again (distance/distance):
Then you have a very rough idea of the basis of Einstein's general relativity equations regarding spacetime warpature:
p=k * energy*distance/volume*distance= K [ mass * (V/t^2)]/ hyperspace]
p = K [mX]/H
K is a constant of proportionality again
V/(t^2) is just the change of volume per unit time per unit time (volumetric explosion)
Now we have a new and very strange way to define pressure. The pressure created in this theoretical 4-D "vessel" is NOT created by energy but something else.
This should help you in visualization. For even better understanding you would need to learn tensor calculus...
Btw, electromagnetic radiation is created just by the acceleration of a charge. It comes in 3-D bundles of energy called quanta.

Somebody might jump in with an attempt to answer your question, but you'd probably have better luck with it over on the physics section of Science and Mathematics.

energy has different dimensions depending its quantum state ex: if the energy is altered at extreme it maybe in another dimension if particles keep decaying energy is at another dimension
