A mistake in the definition of dimension. We usually think of dimensions as spatial things, this is what you are talking about. A dimension however isn't a thing so much as a relationship or an aspect of a thing. We live in three dimensions because we need three points to describe where an object is. X, Y, and Z axis if you will. If we somehow believed that the coffee cup on your table was different at 4 PM then it was at 1 PM then we would need 4 dimensions to describe the place of anything, exactly what time it was there being the fourth. The number of points needed to plot a thing is it's number of dimensions.
Let's take Velocity or speed for example. They have 2 dimensions. Length (A spatial dimension) and time. You need to plot both the length and time it took to travel that length to plot it's speed. Hope this is making sense.
So while inside and outside may very well be a dimension the question is what is it a dimension of? And is it important in anyway? I could use height when trying to decide how much carpet to buy, but that would just be a silly waste of calculation as the area of the floor only needs two dimensions to calculate, the added third dimension being useless information.
OK physics lesson over

I would like to point out the movie MEN IN BLACK.
the first one...where they "find the galaxy" they deliver it to the alien species... and the camera pans out from the car in ny...to the us...to earth....to the solar system keeps panning out...and it is nothing more than an alien playing marbles.
It would be amazing what is after quantum physics. Life within life. One again (inside and out)
sort of like when alice fell in the rabbit hole, and discovered life within life.
Bacteria within us, cells within our bodies, creating life from life. etc.
Another thing i thought was, we think of cancer in our bodies as a disease a plague to our bodies, to yourself. So we try to rid it from our bodies. It is small and microscopic in comparison to the whole body.
Now what if humans, was cancer to the planet earth? And the Galaxy within the universe, is trying to rid this virus from one of its cells (earth)
ok lets say it like this
cancer super small, is in our body and kills us. we try to take it out to live and thrive and CREATE life.
Humans on earth is killing its body, so it creates cancer/virus's to kill humans off so it can thrive and create life.
The universe needs earth to thrive and live, but its plagued, so it does things we might perceive as science to "balance it out" and keep the "system clean"
kinda far fetched and "out there" and im sure i lost a lot of you...but it happens in the smallest forms today, we can observe plants growing, evolving to "fight and kill of" things that kill it...is it so absurd?

There is a way, but I can't tell you or I'd violate the ATS TAC, but let's just say that it is possible to produce and to experience, a neurological Bose Einstein condensate, bring the complete awareness of the entire sphere of consciousness into absolute oneness with the Akashic Field, outside of time. That such an experience IS available, whether you yourself can have access to it or not, blows the mind just to KNOW that it's all TRUE. It IS true, and the materialist reductionists or materialist realists are incorrect, and Newton is incorrect, even Einstein - since there IS this other dimension, outside of time, in the light of life, and it's all one, of infinite intelligence, and of infinite and unrelenting love. It's there. And all the religious and mystical traditions all have this same experience, or a taste thereof, in common, and its the very thing which has given rise to all the mystical traditions of human history down through the ages.
What is most interesting, is the way in which the human mind and it's rider, consciousness are hard wired FOR this experience, even if only at the time of "death" - which means it's always there, in the background, like the blue sky is still there on a cloudy day.
So it's worth imagining, that timeless dimension, because it actually IS accessible to human conscious awareness..! That's good news!

I found your post very humbling, and personally I can relate it to our human experience. It was a very refreshing read. It's nice to see my own thoughts mimicked in the words of other people every once in a while

I don't mind telling you that at this moment, that went right over my head...perhaps after some sleep I will re-read it and it will sink in!!
