there is no above and below... just NOW..
just becouse someone dreams up some dimention "or names it" does not have any impact on us.. becouse "this is our dimention"?
Point is ... if you was to go to "another dimention" you wouldnt exsist becouse that dimention did not CALCULATE YOU and if you was to view or witness another dimention "egro sum you would destroy it or be destroyed" simple logic

Well, I don't want to confuse you very much. But when you are talking about 2D, 3D, 4D and so on, and how something could exist in a 2D reality, to be completely honest it is only your perception which is built off 3d.
Think of a train on it's tracks as being something which lives in a 2D reality. All it knows is to follow the tracks. It doesn't perceive any direction that isn't on that track. It has 2 directions, forward and backward. Now, we can see that the train is 3d, that it moves in other directions and so on. But from the perspective of the train, it only knows forward and backwards.
So if 2D exists is just a matter of perception. What is your perception of time itself? Forward and backward. But your choices actually change the directions and things you do in time. Go Rob a store tommorow, and you'll be in a dimension where you are in jail. Don't, and you won't be. 2 different "timelines". So you actually move around in the 4th dimension all the "time", but to our perspective it appears as if we are on those tracks just like that train.

Firstly I don't accept that another dimension (be it 5th or 6th) is any different than the 2nd and 3rd It is merely another view point. Sure we cannot understand it or imagine it because we are so used to being where we are.
that is my point...
You can not affect another dimetion, you can observe it only.. if one is to "go into another dimention" then you as YOU would not be YOU you would be something els "becouse of the paramaters of the given dimention"
you are ONLY you becouse of this dimention we are in..

This argument may be infinite.
Don't you find it contradictory that infinity has a name? Just the fact that there is a label or name for it puts it in a box and makes it finite. I have just always found it interesting; it's still just an idea because it is an unknown.
It is contradictory for one reason "god"... thats the contradiction..
infinity is both finite and inifinate.
you need to be alive to witness infinity.. but you are apart of infinity also.. befor you was alive you was nothing "just energy" now that you are alive you are matter with abit of energy" then when you die you become energy again.. noting goes to waste Nothing!! matter is not destoryed it just turns back into energy again.. "infinity"
point im making is that infinity is only relevent if one is alive.. becouse if your dead then what is the point?
would we be debating infinity if we was dead? "i think not"
unless you know something i dont ---
