Actually it is VERY interesting you should bring this up....I love this "Spatial Theories" and occupy much my time to it =D
First off, I shall begin by giving you an E-book written in the 1880s called "Flatland"
An interesting book about a 2D being who learns how to travel to other Dimensions, and tries to explain this all to his fellow "Flatworlders"
Now....first off I'd like to say, we are at the very least 4th dimensional beings
There is no way we aren't, or else we couldn't percieve time in any way....but as it is theorized, in our universe, time and 3D are the same, even
though they are seperate dimensions they really can't be seperated. For instance, you see the light of our sun as it was 8 minutes ago
There's actually many ways to prove we are 4th dimensional beings, and one of them that I sorta came up with is this.
A 1 dimensional being can only see points, for instance, two lines cross, he percieves ONLY the point at which they cross.
A 2 dimensional being can only see lines, if a square or cube or anything passes through his dimension, he'll only see the line at which it meets his
Likewise a 3 dimensional being can only see 2 dimensional objects, the square and such, but he can MOVE around these objects to view them from
different angles. Much like the "flat" pictures on your Television.
We are fourth Dimensional beings, because we can "grasp" time but not see all of it, just as each dimension can only "grasp" its actual dimension.
We can not only see in 3d thanks to our 2 eyes...but we can feel it in more ways than just touch. We are immersed in an Up Down left right forward
Now it is even possible we are Multi-Dimensional beings, and are able to percieve all dimensions but just haven't identified the others.
Anyways, I see what you are getting at. I am not sure if it would apply to anything above the 3rd Dimension, because once you leave that you leave
actual physical space. However have you heard of the M-Braine theories? I think that's what they are called.
I guess it ties into string theory, and basically when these Braines collide they BOOM create our universe. I tried to read some up on it but it
seriously hurt my head
Also I was reading today an article that seemed to go back to us being a flat universe. As in, we are on a table. It was talking about the center of
the universe, and "where is it?". Basically we know we aren't the center of the universe, so that rules out a sphere (something to do with the
sphere having ALL points seemingly the center) and further suggests we are a flat universe.
Which actually would probably do the Braine theories some good too.
Anyways, I think the Braine theory is the closest thing science has to what you just stated, so I'll be looking for a source on it.
Oiy I can't find anything to do with it, but I found this odd site that has to do with "Why is there anything at all?" and a bit about god blah
blah. How everyone believes in God, but people interpret it differntly. JamesG this is directed to you. Your god would simply be the big bang...but
anyways...well look at the site...I think it's a scientific one, I know it's not religious, I'm just not certain WHAT it is...
