How Many Dimensions Do We Live In?

It is not 4.

Let me explain.

We normally say we live in 3 spacial dimensions and 1 dimension of time.

All dimensions appear to not be similar, why is Time different to space?

Let us come back to that question later, and look at the spacial dimensions first.

Let us eliminate the ones we don't live in, one by one.

To be complete we should start with 0 (zero) dimension first.

Zero dimension means nothing there. We obviously live somewhere else so that we can define "nothing" as being something different.

In mathematics we can define this nothing with no dimensions as a point.

Although nothing can live there, we can still define it, it is abstract not 'Real'.

Now let us go to 1 dimension.

This can be defined (represented abstractly) mathematically as a line.

We can imagine abstractly that something (a being, also 1 dimensional) can live on this line, but it can only move (if it could move) forwards and backwards. It would be unaware (blind) of anything outside of its dimension, no notion of extra dimensions of side to side or up and down.

We can also represent this dimension in our ('Real') world with a laser light, we just imagine that the light has no other dimension other than length.

Now if anything existed outside this dimension it could enter and exist this dimension at any time. From the point of view of the abstract being it would appear as apparent random events in time, interfering in their dimension.

Because we know that we live in higher dimensions, we can demonstrate this with our fingers, by entering and exiting (squeezing in and out) of the laser light.

We therefore do not live in a 1 dimensional world.

Now let us go to 2 dimensions.

This can be defined (represented abstractly) mathematically as a plane. We can imagine abstractly that something (a being, also 2 dimensional, an area) can live on this plane, but it can only move (if it could move) forwards and backwards, and side to side. It would be unaware (blind) of anything outside of its dimension, no notion of extra dimensions of up and down.

We can also represent these dimensions in our ('Real') world with a bowl of water, the surface of the water is the 2 dimensional plane, we just imagine that the water has no other dimension other than length and width.

Now if anything existed outside these dimensions it could enter and exist these dimension at any time. From the point of view of the abstract being it would appear as apparent random events in time, interfering in their dimensions.

Because we know that we live in higher dimensions, we can demonstrate this with our fingers, by entering and exiting (squeezing in and out) of the surface of the water (dip our fingers into and out of the water).

We therefore do not live in a 2 dimensional world.

Now let us go to 3 dimensions.

This can be defined (represented abstractly) mathematically as a volume. We can imagine abstractly that something (a being, now 3 dimensional) can live in this volume, but it can only move (if it could move) forwards and backwards, side to side and up and down. It would be unaware (blind) of anything outside of its dimensions, no notion of extra dimensions of .... (in and out, I will explain in another Tea Break Book).

We can also represent these dimensions in our ('Real') world with ourselves, the surface enclosing ourselves (volume) is the 3 dimensional volume, we just imagine that we have no other dimensions other than length, width and height (which we unfortunately do).

Now if anything existed outside these dimensions it could enter and exist these dimensions at any time. From the point of view of the abstract being it would appear as apparent random events in time, interfering in their dimensions.

Because we don't (normally) know that we live in higher dimensions, we can demonstrate this with ourselves (our fingers), but to be fair we must close our eyes and be blind like the other beings in their worlds.

Now if there were no other dimensions we could simply move forwards or backwards or side to side or up and down freely and have no interference with any other dimension.

Now move freely in any one of those directions.

What happens?

You have hit something, a chair, a table, a wall, a door or gone through a window!

You open your eyes and say something like "well they are just 3 dimensional volumes just like me". (Unless you went out the window, and you won't be saying that!).

But they are not like you! You can define them by their surface (like you were defined) and say they are 3 dimensional volumes (which they are), but they are not made of the same stuff as you are (just 3 dimensions), they have something different about them that is different to you, a different dimension.

We therefore do not live in a 3 dimensional world.

Now how can we demonstrate this by entering and exiting (squeezing in and out) something into these volumes, that make up this different dimension? of the volume (dip our fingers into and out of the volumes).

This something (like in the previous dimensions) must not change the existing dimensions.

Now a physicist would say something like "quantum fluctuations from a higher dimension come into and out of our dimensions etc." remember : -From the point of view of the abstract being (the physicist in this case) it would appear as apparent random events in time, interfering in their dimensions.

But there is a simpler answer, just add the missing dimension in the first place (that was always there, but you ignored it).

The missing 5th dimension is the Density of space itself.

[I jumped Time as it is already considered the 4th dimension, back to Time later].

Whatever the space of the volume is made of, that defined your abstract self (volume), (and the other volumes), you can squeeze more of this into the same volume, therefore adding Density to that space. [I explain how this is done in another Tea Break Book].

Now all the objects have all 4 dimensions.

Now as you travel forwards you can also travel into the missing dimension of density.

Because we are part of our world and macroscopic we don't normally experience travel into different densities (unless we dip our fingers into and out of water).

At the atomic and sub atomic scales things are always travelling through different densities of space. Quantum fluctuations are merely different densities of space that are dynamic. (Another Tea Break Book).

Now back to Time.

Time at first appears to be separated from the other dimensions, but it is not separate. I explain Time in another Tea Break Book, but to summarise here, each spacial dimension has its own Time.

So as you travel along any dimension you travel with the components of Time for each Dimension you travel along, but because we are composite macroscopic beings we see Time as one complete thing in our world. We do not see all the (dimensions of Time) components individually. In the same way a child would see all the (dimensions of space) together when they see an object in our world (it does not analyse each dimension (separately) that creates that object).

Time is something dynamic, but just as important is that space is also dynamic, as is the 5th dimension. They can all be explained by one fundamental dynamic unit, that I call the 'APE', that encompasses all the dimensions together.

A quantum of space if you prefer. Quantum fluctuations (of energy) do not appear and disappear in and out of our world from another dimension. They are already here, they are just changes of the density of these dynamic 'APE's and their interactions with themselves. Energy and Matter are also different densities and combinations of 'APE's.
