Regarding 5-D spacetime:

You may find alternate 4-D universes to be a bit easier to grasp.  I
recommend checking out Greg Egan's *Dichronauts*, which is set in a
universe that has two spacelike dimensions and two timelike dimensions.
(Our own world has three spacelike and one timelike dimension at least.)  I
still can't quite visualize what the main characters look like, although
I've been getting better with practice.

I also heartily recommend Egan in general, but that's the work that has the
most relevance to the topic.
