I think i get how your trying to explain it, and yeah i think your right. Each dimension is a point on the diagram and each can hold data. Using this method of drawing out an array you can draw any dimensions (well over 60,000) although why you would want to who knows lol I find this diagram easier to grasp than that of a table which can only easily show up to a 3 dimensional array ie
Array(4)
_
|0|
|1|
|2|
|3|
|4|
-

Array(1,1)
_________
| 0,0 | 0,1|
| 1,0 | 1,1|
------------
etc

There's a tutorial for multi-dimensional arrays I wrote.

Also, you're wrong. In an array, only the last dimension holds any actual data. The rest are simply place holders. In a cell 1,1,3. The 3 is the data, 1, 1 only tell you which row of numbers to look at.

I will, from this day forward, always refer to 3-dimensional arrays as 'giraffes'.
