Is it possible to view the second dimension?

I'm just wondering because we live in a world that has 3 dimensions, and subtracting height means that it would just be a line.(Just my opinion on this topic.) Hope some of you here figure this problem.

This guy explains dimensions very interestingly:

2D

I'd say you can conceptualize the second dimension, but can't really view it. Depends on your definition on viewing something though. A 2-dimensional object cannot be perceived by our senses as far as I know. So you always look at 3D-objects, or even 4D-objects, because without time you couldn't see anything.

Maybe all dimensions known to us are necessary for us to exist and therefore to "view things". You could then only view 11-dimensional objects.

But yeah thinking about dimensions is very interesting, here's another mindblowing concept: relativity; explained by Brian Greene:
