Dimensions, time, space, and other banterings of science

    proof that all those years in chem & astronomy classes weren't a waste of money. I present a scientific view of human reality, in 4 dimensions.

    One of the biggest mistakes people talk about when it comes to dimensions is 3D. We actually are in 4D space, NOT 3D.
    Look at a sheet of paper. The edge that runs up and down is one dimension. The edge that runs left and right is another. That is called a planar edge (where two or more dimensions meet) and the flat sheet of paper represents 2D. If you pick up a piece of paper and move it around, it's still 2D. If you added thickness to the paper, like stacking a few sheets on top of each other you then have a 3D object. But each one is still 2D.
    If you have any 3D object and move it more than 2 directions at once, like downward & to the left its moving in 3D space. Let's use a ball as an example. If you rotate the ball on its own axis while it's moving downward & left (as its moving in 3D) its now in 4D space. The rotation of a 3D object on more than 2 axis while it moves is considered 4D movement. We can therefore call this 4D space. As you read your computer screen, you are interacting with a 3D object in a 4D space.

    An object must be within a dimension 1+N higher than its own to move. N representing the number of its dimensions. For a piece of paper to move, it must move within 3D space (aka our space). It so happens that we and all life exist within 4D space. For a human to move, it must also move within 4D space. A human cannot fit into nor move within a piece of paper. That is one dimension less than our own.

    Imagine if we all walked only forward or backward, left or right. We are acting out 2D movements. However, if you turn your body as you move, then you are acting out a 3D movement. Volume (LxWxH) is also referred to as our 3rd dimension. So why can't this be 3D space? Because not only has quantum physics determined that we are 4 dimensions, but certain types of matter (like quarks & neutrinos) might not have any dimensions. Or they might have 4 dimensions. Meaning there is 5D space. Very advanced stuff, nuclear physics & other stuff i've had to learn about in college. Boring professors wanting to "teach" us something. Only thing I learned is how some of these professors really need to get a life. LOL

    Scientists think that more than 4 dimensions exist. (We haven't seen a quark or neutrino in person or manipulated one, they are known to exist by nuclear/atomic theory). There may be multiple universes as well (aka parallel universes) and if they interact with our own than hundreds of dimensions could exist. Each dimension being an extension of every hypothetical movement we can make at any point in time.

    Let me throw one more brain teaser at you. Imagine if any object can move in any direction forever. If there was nothing stopping you, you could fly up into the air, into the atmosphere, and into space. You could fly straight up forever and never stop. There are no boundries. Or are there? We live on a ball and every known planet in the galaxy is also shaped like a sphere/ball. Could the universe also not be shaped like a ball? If that's true, then there must be boundries. Imagine if the Big Bang occurred billions of years ago. Matter is expanding outward from the focus of the Big Bang. Won't it eventually run into the boundries of the universe? If it does, will it then reverse or will it push up against the boundries trying to break them. Will all matter end up at the edges of the Universe someday? Will all matter be at the edges of this thing that contains reality? Or are there no boundries? If that is true, what is gravity? Why is there only gravity on the planets? In space there is no gravity. Planets and the Sun exhibit a magnetic effect that we call gravity. It pulls objects towards them. If we left this planet in spaceships someday & started travelling could we not reach the edges of the Universe? Would we travel in a circle? Until we run into this thing first.

    You know people once said the Earth was flat (Catholics might want to read up on their Church history, interesting stuff) and were persecuted because that was contrary to certain religious beliefs. But we now know that there has to be roundness to our planet. Christopher Columbus didn't sail off the side of Planet Earth when he crossed the known boundary of the New World. Will we someday travel trillions of light years and find that the Universe is also round? If that's true, then a boundary exists to life. What if we try to break out of that boundary? Just for laughs, just to see if we can do it?

    If you want to tweak your brain out, read this and especially Many worlds interpretation. This last one is a real brain twister, be very cautious before you click LOL
    I now return you to your normal program, outside the realm of science, quack physics & extremely boring postulations on Big Bang Theory & Big Bang Reversal. Already in progress.

    Watch out for those Neutrinos, they move fast :eek:

    Vote for my new sig if you read this far. It's the anti-scientific thing to do.
