I posted this earlier on another thread, but it was quickly swallowed up because I happened to post it during an exchange between some members who
were debating whether or not alien photos on the thread were real or not.
I will post it here, just to bounce this stuff off of other members more intelligent than myself (there are MANY) and see what you all think. If I
have made any errors in my suppositions/geometry, please let me know, as these are the foundations on which I place a lot of my beliefs.
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 tesseract. A tessersect 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 on a piece of paper and placing 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 by the same principle.
This is why I believe interdimensional, extradimensional, or multi-dimensional beings can exist without any "physical" proof to our 3D minds. We
simply can't comprehend what we don't (or can't ) see.
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 beings.
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. ( At least, not officially.)
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 phsically 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.
I wouldn't begin to know how this was possible, anymore than I would be able to tell you how 4D space functions, but perhaps a 4D being would have no
trouble at all understanding this concept and practicing it.
These are my thoughts on the matter, and if anyone would care to share their opinion, for or against, I would like to hear them.
