• Three honest questions: 1) How can science define the beginning and end of infinity, especially as the birth and death of our own universe? 2) How does existence's extension beyond that necessitate higher dimensions? And 3) In the 7th dimension as illustrated here, what is the difference between A) various points along a seven-dimensional line and B) the points along the eighthï»¿ dimensional line to the "side?" Why are multiple dimensional directions needed for different infinities? Thanks :)

• 1)With this project, I don't propose to define the beginning and end of infinity, I propose that both "before" and "after" the universe are a return to the same state. 2)Thereï»¿ is much that remains unexplained about our universe (for instance 96% of the universe is undetectable dark matter and dark energy). Extra dimensions is one way of exploring answers to these mysteries. 3)Watch my latest video, Imagining Ten Dimensions in Two Minutes and see what you think: watch?v=hf2CxZPl7KI

• the problem with this is that you're assigning time as a dimension, a dimension resides in space, and time moves through all of them, you're assuming by this,ï»¿ that a 2 dimensional being is static in time and can't move with it, which would be untrue. the fourth dimension would be multiple objects inhabiting the exact same space, at the same time, a fourth dimensional art gallery, for instance, could have one point of observation at the center, and a walkway around to see all the art in that spot

• Actually, with this approach I'm saying that a 2D flatlander would use the 3rd dimension to change from state to state, so "time" and "anti-time" would be the two directions in the 3rd spatial dimension for him, just as those are the labels you and I can use for the 4th. But those are not the only labels, and no matter labels we apply we have to remember that we're talking about the dimension which is orthogonal to theï»¿ 3rd: a Minkowski space where our past, present and future are simultaneous.

• so... not actually time as you would normally think of it, justï»¿ extra movement through dimensions, yes?

• Right. If you're thinking of the fourth dimension as an "arrow of time" that's not so useful. If you're thinking of the fourth dimension in the way that Einstein described it where "the distinction between past and future is only anï»¿ illusion", then you're much closer to the truth. And Minkowski's "Block Universe" concept is the same idea - a timeless 4D space where past, present, and future are all just points within this large pseudo-Euclidean 4D Minkowski Space that we find ourselves within.

• Saying "length, width, and depth can exist without time" is acceptable as an abstract concept, but how could a particular physical object have length width and depth but no duration? Wouldn't you agree such an object couldn't exist? I dealï»¿ with this in more detail in my videos Imagining the Third Dimension and Imagining the Fourth Dimension.

• Just curiosity here, not trying to argue or anything, but how did you get the data that 96% of the universe is undetectable dark matter and dark energy when they are undetectable? how do you measure it? ï»¿

• So, what is the 8th dimension; exactly? ï»¿

• wouldn'tï»¿ there just be infinite dimensions ?

• This uses a little of bate & switch tracts by using time rather than space. M Theory has to do with extra spatial dimension (NOT EXTRA TIME Dimensions: that's the bate & switch at work here). If you're easily fooled by a hocus pokusï»¿ routine then you'll be gullible for this. In the end these guys neither know real M Theory, nor have they proven their case. Plain & simple their after the advertisement dollars.

• my mindï»¿ was blown by the 3rd dimension

• mind blown gifï»¿ doesn't do this video justice

• Could movie files on a computerï»¿ be a way of visualizing the 4th and 6th dimension? Movies are a linear progression of different points, so hitting play on a movie is experiencing it in the 4th dimension, and then the movie file itself is a single point of all the possible frames in a movie expressed in a single file, so, the 6th dimension? .

Obviously movies don't have freedom of choice so there would be no 5th dimension for it, but the parallels are definitely there.

• This is an invitation to see an alternative to String Theory!

Where the different dimensions are just future possibilities in our one 3D Universe

Based on the postulates:

1. The Î¨ probability function represents the forward passage of time with the future coming into existence photon byï»¿ photon.

2. Is that HUP âˆ†Ã—âˆ†pÃ—â‰¥h/4Ï€ that is formed by the w-function is the same uncertainty we have with any future event within our own ref-frame that we can interact with turning the possible into the actual!
