2 dimensions is flat like playing cards. I think we are in that 2d plane.


well, if you are going by traditional definitions, the 1st dimension isn't considered nothing, it is considered a single point, this would lead to the 2nd dimension being the playing card you are describing...

what you are talking about is not directly related to height, width, and depth, so the second dimension doesn't HAVE to be that card shaped object. (even the card is technically a 3 dimensional object. we cannot actually perceive 2D as it would be invisible to our 3D awareness)

OP, valiant effort but it is far more simple than you think.


Surviving Hermes Trismegistus is the wisdom of the Hermetica, 42 books that have profoundly influenced the development of Western occultism and magic

darkbooks.org...

The esoteric belief systems are far more valid and wide spread than anyone thinks.

I made a thread explaining this further.

Sorry all those "magic" haters Douglas Adams was on magic's side

You have to consider that nothing is nothing so how do you get 3 dimensions from nothing.

i see what you are saying it just to complicated for me to understand that. And i want it to make sence.

now that is the question that has believers in a higher power/God...

this is why I felt your 2nd dimension was an energy that exists both outside and inside our universe, and was the catalyst for our universe coming into existance.

something caused our universe to be created, and it had to have been an infinite energy source to accomplish what they say happend in the 1st second after the BB

just to add, according to my understanding of the Big Bang theory, there was nothing before space came into existance, this is why there was hyperinflation that caused the universe to expand so quickly in the first moments after the BB

I think you need 5 dimensions for the big bang.

the problem to me is that people think 3D(height/width/depth) and assume those are the first 3 dimensions and everything else is after that...

but what if they are actually dimensions 6, 7, & 8?
with 5 dimensions before and after those 3, that we just cannot detect.

personally I do not believe that time is a dimension. I think its a manmade concept of perception.

Ever had a moment where time has seemed to slow down for you? be in an exciting moment in a sporting event, or at the moment of a vehicular accident?

did time slow down for everyone during that moment, or was it just you?

time is all perception...

Love your idea about this! I disagree with the premise of this thread but this type of thinking is needed none the less!

Many truths can be found in literature and Frank Herbert shared many with the Dune series



Because of the one-pointed Time awareness in which the conventional mind remains immersed, humans tend to think of everything in a sequential, word-oriented framework. This mental trap produces very short-term concepts of effectiveness and consequences, a condition of constant, unplanned response to crises.

Liet-Kynes The Arrakis Workbook




The thing the ecologically illiterate don’t realize about an ecosystem is that it’s a system. A system! A system maintains a certain fluid stability that can be destroyed by a misstep in just one niche. A system has order, a flowing from point to point. If something dams the flow, order collapses. The untrained might miss that collapse until it was too late. That’s why the highest function of ecology is the understanding of consequences.

Pardot Kynes in "Appendix I: The Ecology of Dune"





Either we abandon the long-honored Theory of Relativity, or we cease to believe that we can engage in continued accurate prediction of the future. Indeed, knowing the future raises a host of questions which cannot be answered under conventional assumptions unless one first projects an Observer outside of Time and, second, nullifies all movement. If you accept the Theory of Relativity, it can be shown that Time and the Observer must stand still in relationship to each or inaccuracies will intervene. This would seem to say that it is impossible to engage in accurate prediction of the future. How, then, do we explain the continued seeking after this visionary goal by respected scientists? How, then, do we explain Muad'Dib?

Time exists because somthing came from nothing. we have clocks that tell us the time it means that there is a start and an end to everything. How does everything start.

exactly, and if we have determined for the sake of this discussion that the 1st dimension is nothing(outside our universe), then that means 3D has to be somewhere starting after your 1st dimension(most likely somewhere around 3D-5D)

Time is relative to the observer though...

our existance on Earth gives us the static rate of time as we know it. We built the clocks that show us time, but time existed long before the first clocks were ever built.

time also moves at different rates depending on its position to gravity, this is why there is time dialation near the event horizon of a black hole. my understanding, is that the further from a point of gravity that one travels the slower time moves

3d has depth
4d has time
