We are little animals with short life-spans that evolved in a such a way that all we needed for our DNA to continue was a relatively good handle on a
three-dimensional world and a strong desire to breed. We don't even see , and can't comprehend even half of the dimensions of spacetime. We see a
very tiny piece of the spectrum of the Electomagnetic Field, and still in only a few limited dimensions.
Other creatures, having to deal with threats from additional dimensions to survive, may have had to evolve to perceive and understand them. And once
you see the "bigger picture," then all of your motivations and actions would probably be not only different, but essentially incomprehensible to
little animals like us.
How could we understand or deal with aliens who naturally move "sideways" through space or time, or instantaneously cross a million light years of
what we perceive as "distance," or who only exist in our perception of reality in a very tangiential way? They pass through, then vanish, and
we're left wondering what the heck happened, when for them it's as simple and clear as going to the refrigerator for milk.
Little animals who try so hard with all of our little squishy brains to figure it all out and have so far only figured out maybe a few fractions of a
percent of what's really going on.
P.S. - Look at the Periodic Table of Elements, for instance. What are all those gaps and holes in it? What are we missing? We can't even figure
out what the universe is made of, what all the pieces are, much less how they work together.
