re: A bit abstract, can you explain what is the yellow circle and the arrow, please?

Yea, sorry about that. The yellow circle is meant to be a sphere, it is to represent the Time-Dimensional object pushing us forward.
The arrow is just meant to show that the universe is going that way.
Does that help?
Cheers.

So with that drawing, what stops us from moving back and forth in time?

Because that object is pushing us. We don't have a say, since the X-Dimensional object is pushing our 3 Dimensional universe, like us 3D humans pushing 2D paper.

If time is uncontrollable, do you think it still has single dimension property? Since you cannot move back and forth already.

Yes, and no. It's hard to explain, in terms of dimensions, I guess it's >3D, but in terms of how we move, we move in a two dimensional plane.
Imagine you're playing a 2d game, you can move your character left and right, they only see going back and forth, unless you call some function to make you jump.
The difference here is that an object is pushing us, instead of a person moving us forward/back.

My best guess, and theory to this, is that the 4D object is pushing us down a slope. But I can't entirely determine the shape, as you know, we can't fully comprehend 4D shapes, and we would only see them as 3D shapes if we saw them in person.

Cheers.

What I tried to say is by your explanation time is only a constant, unchangeable. If that is the case time has no dimension at all and the higher dimensional space-time is obscure and unobservable.
