I got this idea from another thread, but decided to start a new thread because this post was slightly off topic. Bear with me, this is quite hard to
explain, and this isnt hard and fast science, just some thoughts.
imagine a one dimensional creature, he can travel forwards and backwards along one line. but say this line was curved.. like a piece of string.. he
would then be able to follow the string, and go on forever in one direction, yet keep passing the same points. He is confined to the piece of
a two dimensional creature would be able to move north, south, east, and west with respect to his current position. he can travel only on one plane..
much like a sheet of computer paper. he is confined to the paper. but say we were to roll this computer paper into a tube. he could travel forever
around the roll of paper, but he would also have boundaries, or the edges of the paper. we could give him a ball to live on, and he could travel
endlessly in any direction he chooses, on the surface of the ball. yet he would not be able to look above the ball, or into it.
if we drew a line around the ball for the one dimensional creature to live on, he would not be able to see the two dimensional creature, unless the
two dimensional creature obstructed the line that the one dimensional creature lived on. In this case, the one dimensional creature would only be able
to see one point of the two dimensional creature, not the whole thing. the point that the 1D creature would see would be the spot on the 2D creature
that the line intersects.
the two dimensional creature would be able to see the 1D creature fully, and other 2D creatures.
humans are 3D creatures, we can travel forward, backward, left, right, up and down. we can see one dimensional creatures, and two dimensional
creatures in whole. we can also see other humans (3D creatures) if we were to intersect the line, the 1D creature would only see one specific point on
us, but wouldnt know what to make of it. he would be perplexed by what he sees, and would not be able to explain it. If we intersected the 2D
creatures plane of existance he would see merely a line, the part of our body intersecting his plane.. since he can not leave his plane of existance
to see up and over to see the rest of us, all he sees is what intersects his plane of existance. he would not be able to explain this. us crossing
into his plane of existance (placing our hand inside the ball he lives on for example) would seem like paranormal activity to him.
If we continue with the analogy, 4D creatures can see us fully. yet we can not see the whole four dimensional creature. we can only see the three
dimensions that this 4D creature is crossing. he is, in effect, crossing into our plane of existance... just as we can cross into a 2D creatures plane
Another point i would like to make has to do with traveling in the different planes. i will try to make this explanation shorter since i already
explained how the creatures percieve thier planes.
If a 1D creature wants to get from point A to point B, then he MUST follow the string he lives on. Yet this string could be in a figure eight and
point A and B are nearly ontop of eachother. The 2D and 3D creatures can see that the points quite close, and the "higher level" creatures can get
from point A to point B quite quickly, yet the 1D creature MUST follow the string. even if this string is several hundred miles long.
Same goes for a 2D creature. Lets take the ball he lives on. Lets place point A and point B on opposite sides of the ball. the 2D creature must travel
along the perimeter of the ball, but "higher level" creatures ie. humans, can clearly see that it would be MUCH quicker to travel through the ball,
rather than around it. The 2D creature has no perception of up and down, so all he can fathom is going around.
To continue the analogy again (this is where it gets confusing in my own mind)... 4D creatures would be able to travel to places that seem EXTREMELY
far off to us... like other galaxies... within no time. because they have one more dimension on us. it is obvious that they can take the shorter
route, but we MUST follow our three dimensional world to the other point, just as the 1D creature MUST follow the string, and the 2D creature MUST
follow the perimiter of the ball..
My thoughts are that paranormal activity is interaction in our world with "higher beings". We can only see what our 3D world will allow us to see.
This could mean that paranormal activity is higher beings, or even everyday occurances... such as clouds, or earthquakes, anything you can imagine...
are just fragments of a whole "higher being". these are the only fragments that our 3D world will allow us to see, much the same as the 2D creature
only seeing a line of my hand, as i reach into the center of the ball he lives on.
This analogy can continue onto 5D, 6D, ect..., but i hope you all see the point by now. because my brain is pretty burned out from trying to explain
*EDIT* to clarify a few things.
