To my knowledge there have not been physical tests.
There are dimensions 1-12 and then it skips to the 26th dimension.
We percieve/live in 3spatial dimensions and one temporal dimension, in theory there is a second temporal dimension.
I believe that higher dimensions exist.
Sorry, but, just, no.
As said in the very first post, according to String/M-Theory, there are 11. There was a battle before, about 26, 26, 25, 25, 11, or 10 - and 11 won.
Besides, if there were 1-11 and another, it wouldn't be 'The 26th' - it would be 'The 12th'. They don't just give arbitrary numbers, they
started at 1 and counted up.
If you're still learning, that's fine, but don't tell people something if you don't know for sure - just let them know it's something you've
heard, or are just pretty sure on.
And the others are theorised to be far below the quantum level, curled into each finite 'position of space' - though there's several theories
supposing that the dimensions aren't so much to small to detect, but too large.
It's all interesting and very good stuff to learn about. With enough cosmologists, we might get some big answers - but Quantum Physics is the place
to be if you want to get rich!
Really, Quantum Revolution II - next 30 years, alongside the Space Revolution, it's alll coming down and the billionaire trends and Bill Gates' of
the next century are just about to come into play. Come on Boson-Higgs!
