Some 71 pages ago, this thread started with a question on belief in an extraterrestrial or extradimensional being existing and whether or not it would
be belivable to a skeptic.
I admit freely that I have not read all 71 pages of dialogue, so please forgive me if this is repetitive, but even as a skeptic (of sorts) myself let
me explain why I believe other dimensional beings could exist without our knowledge.
Visualize a pencil point moving a given distance in an unchanging direction as it traces a line. Move this line at right angles to itself and it
blocks out a square or rectangle. Move this square at right angles to itself-up or down, that is- and it traces a cube.
Now, for a cube to move at right angles to all it's dimensions, a new region of space is needed- a 4th dimension. In such a higher space the cube
would trace out a hypercube, or terrasect. A terrasect is a four dimensional figure bounded by 8 cubes, having 24 faces and 32 edges.
Hypothetically, since we are not in 4D space, some 4th dimensional being would find it as easy to understand a vehicle disappearing or the withdrawl
of an orange without breaking the peel as it would be for us, as 3D beings to see the possibility of taking up a pencil from the center of a drawn
circle and place the point outside the circle, something that would "mystify" a being living in 2D space on the paper.
The moment our pencil leaves the paper, it enters 3D space. It literally "disappears" to someone living in 2D space, and would be considered
Correspondingly, a movement into 4D space from 3D space would appear as "magic" to us.
This is why I believe interdimensional, extradimensional, or other dimensional beings can exist without any "physical" proof to our 3D minds.
As hard as it would be to describe our world to a being living in a 2D world, so it would also be for a 4D being to describe their world to us.
This is what I believe, in a nutshell, and I hope it was in some way at least a plausible explanation for the POSSIBILITY of other dimensional
Space-time travel for extra-terrestrials is based upon a similar principle, using what I would call a "shortcut" method we as a race do not have
conscious knowledge of.
Another analogy, if I may:
Imagine there are 2 people living in 2 buildings that are back to back. Mr A. lives in the building that has it's entrance on 5th Ave. and Mr. B.
lives in the building that faces 6th Ave. They both live on the 7th floor, and both of them have a living room wall at the back of their respective
This means that they physically live only a few feet from each other.
However, if one wants to visit the other, they would have to leave their apartment, get in the elevator, go to the ground floor, go outside the
building, walk a block, find the entrance to the other building, go inside, get on the elevator, go up to the other man's apartment, knock on the
door, go inside and sit in his friend's living room, only a few feet from his own.
The way one neighbor would have to travel to see another is similar to how we view space travel- the actual physical crossing of enomous distances in
But imagine if they could find a way to cross those few feet of space without damaging the walls or themselves, in a multidimensional vehicle perhaps,
and the problem of time and distance are solved.
Forgive me again for being so long winded about this subject, and I hope this hasn't been repetitive to other threads posted here.
I wanted to add my 2 cents and ended up spending a whole quarter, but it's the only way I know of to explain my beliefs/theories on the subject.
Thanks for your time.
