I don't believe that we, as four dimensional beings, can envision what the fifth dimension will look like if we are indeed exposed to it. Think of
it this way... if you were simply a two dimensional stickman inside of a circle (draw it out if this helps), you would see nothing but what is inside
the circle because you cannot see "over" the line that surrounds you. If a higher dimensional being were to peel Mr. stickman off the two
dimensional plane he would then not only see what's over the line but would be able to move over the line and seeming disappear to his friends and
family still stuck in two dimensional world. This example helps illustrate the differences between spatial dimensions. I highly recommend a book
titled "HyperSpace" by Dr. Michio Kaku. He explains this as an example of how higher dimensions might be "envisioned." He also explains that
current theoretical physics theories point to more than four dimensions we currently are aware of (xyz and time) and goes so far as to mathematically
predict 10 dimensions.
As we dig down into "matter" we find that everything is composed of atoms which are composed of electrons, protons and neutrons which are again
broken down into smaller and smaller particles ad nauseum. What we (as human beings) are finding out is that "matter" is an illusion of sorts. It
is a culmination of directed energies arranged geometrically. Energies are separated by frequency and amplitude. Why is it that we can see only the
visible spectrum of light? Because this is how our own energy (our bodies) are arranged. Do you believe in radio waves? I'll bet you do. Why?
You can't see them. You can't feel them. Yet we discovered they are possible and quite useful to boot.
We are just beginning to discover what
the "REAL" world is really composed of: Conscious energy.
(Another excellent resource that ties much of this together is a book on crop circles titled, "Secrets in the Fields: The science and mysticism of
crop circles." It is the best book I've found on the subject and VERY comprehensive. You can find it at your local library if you can't afford to
buy it, but it's well worth the money.)
Anyway, can we see or even imagine what a higher dimensional world might look like? I don't think so. What do you think?
As for the Mayan calendar reference... I agree. This is not sole cause for alarm. It does NOT signify the end of the world, just the end of an age.
But coupled with other sources of information such as psychic channeling, the abboringines (sp?), the Hopi Indians, Revelations from the Bible, and
the technological state of the world (exponential growth), it gives me a feeling that something BIG is on the horizon. Could be Judgment Day and the
return of Christ. Could be a dimensional shift. Could be both. My point is not that we should exert great amounts of effort in trying to find proof
of what is to come but rather to open up to the signs of the times and work to re-examine ourselves, our relationships with each other and our faith
That's all for now.
