“Yet I exist in the hope that these memoirs, in some manner, I know not how, may find their way to the minds of humanity in Some Dimensionality, and may stir up a race of rebels who shall refuse to be confined to limited Dimensionality.” from Flatland, by E. A. Abbott – Flat Land: A Romance of Many Dimensions
There has been a lot of talk over the years about extra dimensions. It has never been totally clear to me how to define that rigorously and effectively. A matter dominated world, it becomes scientifically accredited when it is repeated, or, it has been falsified.
The concept of dimension is not restricted to physical objects. High-dimensional spaces occur in mathematics and the sciences for many reasons, frequently as configuration spaces such as in Lagrangian or Hamiltonian mechanics; these are abstract spaces, independent of the physical space we live in.
The thinking here in regards to the scientific explanation, is that in place of space-time, consciousness becomes capable. The brain, in context of this article, is functioning with regards to how consciousness amplifies it’s use of energy?
The surface of a marble table is spread out in front of me. I can get from any one point on this table to any other point by passing continuously from one point to a “neighboring” one, and repeating this process a (large) number of times, or, in other words, by going from point to point without executing “jumps.” I am sure the reader will appreciate with sufficient clearness what I mean here by “neighbouring” and by “jumps” (if he is not too pedantic). We express this property of the surface by describing the latter as a continuum. http://www.bartleby.com/173/24.html
It always nice to have a smile on your face while you debunk.:-)
