Why I love posts like these:
To begin, I'd like the reader to know where I'm coming from, I am the kind of guy who just likes to sit back, observe, and think; derive
explanations, models and relations for whatever the train of thought leads to, to the point of OCD.
SO, more from where i'm coming from:
after years of academic exposure to a broad range of sciences: Math, logic, physics, chemistry, phil, etc... Years of documentary, forum and video
exposure to the above mentioned topics as well as mostly every topic category a site like this would have to offer, although some more than others (
information > conspiracy )
Years of dabbling in "meaning of life" sort of food such as philosophy, metaphysics, meditation, spirituality, etc...
A childhood of genuine interest in technology and realistic science fictions, that's me.
SO, where I am:
About to enter finals week, I'm on the edge. I've been coding assignments nonstop for weeks now, busting out hard laps at the pool, playing
master's league Starcraft, and using whatever mental stimulus I can get my resourceful hands on to sharpen my already finely sharpened edge
AND THUS, my current thoughts:
Right here, at a relative maximum of nerve activity, I read a post like this, watch the linked video, and when he goes on explaining the curled
dimensions... I'm able to intuitively see, with my intuition, the existential structure of these extra dimensions. Let me be clear, in my head, I'm
not taking object A (curled dimension) and object B (larger dimension) and drawing a simple "A is in B" relation. No. I'm using my already general
intuition of matrices, wave mechanics, geometry, and everything else, and with this basis, I explore the notion that the physicist is conveying, and I
play with it a bit, everything is SO ABSTRACT, the abstractness from everything abstractly blends together to new abstractness and at this point, for
a short moment, at full thought train momentum, for the short moment that my neurons are able to maintain this highly complex and synchronous
environment, I'm in the infinite. In my head, I'm toying around/exploring the fabric of reality itself. My ability to articulate is nowhere near
anywhere to be able to express just how MIND BLOWING this is. I'm no stranger to string theory, and as far as I'm concerned, it could be an
incorrect theory, HOWEVER, there is a certain sort of universal truth that my intuition can recognize and soak into the subconscious from it, a little
bit of truth, a little bit of potential??... Like I said, articulation is difficult at these levels.
That is why I love posts like these, they're awesome, thank you for your time and effort.
Everybody should dabble in the weird and wacky world of physics.
