Multi-dimensional models, higher dimensional constructs. How many dimensions are there.

These are brief thoughts of mine on the various different ideas of multiple dimensions floating around out there. I have seen theories of 7 dimensions. Theories of 9 dimensions. Theories of 11 dimensions. Theories of 13 dimensions... etc. There are physics dimensional theories like the 11 or 12 dimensional models in string theory. In physics we supposedly live in a 4 dimensional world, the first 3 being spacial and the 4th being time, with speculation of additional dimensions we don't currently 'live in'. There are New age dimensional theories, and in many we are seen to be living in 3D and many think in a process of global ascension to 5D!

Basically, it doesn't matter whether one is a so called 'expert' in physics or in a spiritual tradition, the 'experts' don't agree.

I definitely believe we can use these theories as metaphors for greater understanding, but I also think it's impossible for us to truly understand the dimensional constructs that exist beyond any where our consciousness is currently housed. We can grasp tentatively. We can think, hey this sounds probable, lets jump on this. However, personally, I believe that while consciousness is constrained within a dimensional limitation understanding the dynamics beyond that expanse of consciousness is always going be just our best guesses.

I find these models can be good ways of interpreting possibilities, and I believe in an infinite universe, there are infinite dimensions and systems of dimensions to be found. So I think ultimately everyone's theory is correct, however limiting yourself to that theory I think is an error in one's spiritual development.

I think when you get down to it, how one perceives the infinite universe says more about the construct of their current consciousness than the construct of the infinite universe itself which would have infinite constructs.

 

Then again... it's just a theory. *smile*

Hi,

   This incarnation I decided to be musician and composer, but every now and then I really love to talk with others about theoretical physics and the nature of realty.

   A dream within a dream or reality within reality? If anything is possible is everything possible?

   Is our consiousness really limited by our physiology or is it limited by our spirits just not being "big" enough or "wise" enough to be able to handle the unlimited power of the Universe?

 

   I am really looking forward to more discussions here!!

   Thanks so much for adding it here!!!!

Thanks miyoko. :)

Brian, cool, I enjoy the mystery in life, and exploring thoughts around it.

Ive always thought of dimensions like the pages of a book. When you open a book and let the pages hang down towards the floor, they are one next to another. Hard toexplain without a visual. But, when the pages "crash" into each other, or touch each other, this is when we can see into the next dimension or realm. Either way, that is one bad ass picture at the top... mind boggling, and mind opening at the same time ;)

Miss Abby, Escher, the artist of the top image was an amazing fellow of days gone by, who created many mind blowing images. :) I'm a fan of his. I like your book metaphor. :)

There's an interesting little book around called Flatland. It shows how 3 dimensional beings would appear to be "magical" to the 2 dimensional beings in Flatland. It's quite instructive when one is considering the effects of multiple dimensions.

'Coincidence' is so thick in my world right now that it's almost cloying... lol, just uploaded this to my own website..

Leila, I find this very interesting...I have always thought there are different dimensions, that so called 'ghosts' are not that at all, but people who are appearing to us from another dimension..as they seem to drift in and drift out...wavering for a minute in our dimension. I once saw two flying objects about 8 miles from our house while driving home...one behind the other, looked sort of like planes but all rusty colored coming down, down to the ground...I thought whatever they were they must be going to crash..then suddenly they just disappeared in the air right in front of my eyes~! I felt that they must have been from another dimension. Perhaps that is the reason for so many weird things that happen in 'our dimension'~!

Hi Andrea, I can't think of anything to recommend off the top of my head, but if I come up with something I'll be sure to let you know.

Lady Nightshade, for certain, it's quite possible that we encounter beings from alternate dimensions and are able to only perceive part of them that cross over with our own dimensions.

It's also possible that changing our own brain wave states allow us to access alternative dimensions, such as dream and trance states.

mike, lol, I'm quite happy with it too. *smile* thanks for commenting. :)
