I have a theory which I have realised only recently. Take it for what its worth. When we consider the regular dimensions. We have three dimensions of
space: Length, Width and Height and one dimension of time, but there is one dimension we overlook: Downwards or heaviness. You could say that this is
included in height(up and down) but actually the height dimension(y axis) that we observe ends at the zero horizon, it does not go beyond zero. In
mathematics we can conceive of negative entities like a negative y axis, but there is no such correspondence in the real world.
But there is a negative y axis, in the core of every bit of matter there is something which causes a downwards pull, which we call gravity. This is
the dimension of gravity.
Now imagine the universe is like a cube, with 6 sides and each side is a separate plane. If you wanted to get from plane to the opposite plane you
would have to go vertifically through the cube through the negative y axis to get there, like an imaginary vertical line going through one plane to
the other. If our universe was just like a 6 sided cube(which I don't believe it is, but for the purpose of illustration lets accept it) and we
existed on one plane, to get to the opposite plane one would have to to travel along the dimension of gravity to get there.
If space is not solid, but simply assumes the shape of the objects in it, it means that every object with mass will cause a depression or as Einstein
calls it a gravity well in the fabric of space. Now revisit the cube universe with 6 sides, it follows that it is possible for a gravity well to be so
deep that it touches the opposite side. Hence an object on one side can travel to the other side by creating a gravity well deep enough to reach the
other side.
Now I really have no idea what the real geometry of the universe is, but the same principles will apply, to travel to another plane one would have to
travel through the dimension of gravity. If suppose the geometry of the universe is like hyperspace, then no matter which plane you begin from, you
can travel to any other plane, but again to leave ones plane one needs to go through the dimension of gravity.
I have an experiment, a really crude, trite and simple one, but I predict if my theory is right that gravity is the 5 dimension this experiment will
work.
If it follows that a gravity well deep enough to reach another plane is how one can travel along the dimension of gravity and a gravity well depends
upon the gravitational field of a mass. Then, if a significant gravitational field is generated around the mass it should theoretically disappear from
its plane. It would literally warp the space around it causing it to sink below the zero horizon and thereby making it disappear(we cannot see the
negative y axis of gravity) I really want to try this but have no idea how it could be done as I am not a physicist, and thus own no equipment to even
experiment in creating intense gravitational fields.
I wonder if there have been experiments done similar to what I propose, and if not, how we could set something up to test it.
