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*

Well, yes, it does. Right off the bat we're told that our Universe began as a "Big Bang" that took place nowhere. Nothing about it makes any sense in our context of the physical world as we live in and understand it.

Lady Nightshade, that's how we know we're exercising our brains... you can FEEL the stretch! lol. That boggling feeling, grasping feeling, means the mind is literally and figuratively expanding. This is particularly true when we come to accept paradoxical thinking, flicks a switch in the brain, opens some doors. Some people can't embrace paradox, it's too much of a stretch given the black and white thinking promoted by mainstream western society. But it's within the grasp of most intuitive thinkers I believe. At least if you break through some of the brainwashing.

Hi Leila~! I remember one of the earliest thoughts I drove myself crazy with when I was a kid..was walking through  a portal and getting lost in another dimension...too much Twilight Zone for me I think,,,I was terrified of this~

It's funny what we remember... with thoughts that amaze. I remember the profound discovery as a child that numbers, could go on without end, that you could just keep adding another 1 to it, that you could conceivably count into infinity.... My mother jokes about it to others, how I reacted with such intensity, to the realization that there was no conceivable end to it, conceiving of something that couldn't technically be conceived...

Pondering the mysteries of existence. It grows your mind. Anyway, I don't know so much about multiple realities and all potentials existing simultaneously. I think it's more like the cloud concept of electrons in quantum. When you make a choice, all the other fields collapse. It's the same with electrons. They don't exist unless observed, which in itself is a little mind staggering.

Cormac aka Papa Hatt the troll, in an infinite universe... wouldn`t both and neither choices be true... that they do all exist simultaneously... AND they don't/can't? How can one exclude anything from an infinite universe? Including the impossible.. *smile*

Leila, I see your point though I guess I don't think of the universe as infinite. I currently think of "God" as ALL and we are mental constructs of God. We are being "dreamed" including the "Gods and Goddesses." As we perceive reality, we create it. The dreamed dreaming the dream. (I don't believe I just said that! No wonder I'm insane.)
