Here's a question y...Hi Ryan, great blog entry! Here's a question you asked which I think I have answer to: what's the difference between the ninth and tenth dimension?<br /><br />First of all, a reminder that string theory says there are 9 spatial dimensions, and it's M-Theory that combines different versions of string theory together by adding a tenth spatial dimension. When physicists say M-Theory posits 11 dimensions, they are talking about ten spatial dimensions plus one of time.<br /><br />In my way of visualizing, time is not a dimension, it's a direction within the spatial dimensions, so there's no need to count it separately. Hence, a 4D hyperspace and time/anti-time as two opposing directions within the fourth spatial dimension are really two ways of thinking about the same thing.<br />http://imaginingthetenthdimension.blogspot.com/2008/03/hypercubes-and-platos-cave-full.html<br />http://imaginingthetenthdimension.blogspot.com/2008/12/arent-there-really-11-dimensions.html<br /><br />So the difference between the 9th and 10th dimension? The 10th dimension is the indeterminate background. Any attempt to break the perfect enfolded symmetry and observe a particular aspect of the 10th dimension spills you into the other dimensions.<br />http://imaginingthetenthdimension.blogspot.com/2009/04/polls-archive-31-whats-before-and-after.html<br /><br />I believe that our feeling that there is only one past and only one future is because that's all there is room for in any particular version of the fourth dimension. With my approach to visualizing the dimensions, the branching outcomes and parallel universes that could result from chance and choice can only be simultaneously perceived from the fifth dimension and above.<br /><br />http://imaginingthetenthdimension.blogspot.com/2009/01/holographic-universe.html<br /><br />I've posted a link to your blog entry in the Interesting Links section of my blog.<br /><br />Thanks!<br /><br />Rob Bryanton<br />Imagining the Tenth DimensionRob Bryantonhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18215892812705188148noreply@blogger.com
