In such a universe, the particles and forces we are familiar with are anchored to a four-dimensional membrane, or "brane", with three dimensions of space and one of time. Crucially, the brane floats in a higher dimensional space-time called the bulk, which we are normally completely oblivious to.

I prefer the old-fashioned name of 'hyperspace', to the new 'bulk' name.

Now make an educated guess... What's the purpose and shape of the 4th dimension?

You cant describe the "shape" of a 5th dimensional object from a 3rd dimensional point of view. And yes it would be a 5th dimensional object sense you at speaking of the whole of the 4th dimension.

Perhaps it accommodates the range of the infinitesimal to the infinite without three dimensional constraints, rendering a solid object from our perspective to be in constant infinite motion. Or to occupy the totality of space-time as a framework of reality.... "...always in motion, the future is..." "... the capacity to fold space..." "...the avalanche has begun, it is too late for the pebbles to vote...."

Damn that's good!

It seems that science will be the key that will awaken humans to its spiritual side. No, I'm not talking about religion here.

I think the cart is a bit in front of the horse on this one … lets wait for some verification of the results before we proclaim relativity dead. If I had to guess, I would say we are dealing with an instrument error rather than a rewriting of the known physical laws of the universe.

But we are not proclaiming relativity dead. On the contrary, we are theorizing that in fact that theory is simply not pertinent outside our dimensional framework. A good allegory may be inferred from the conceptualization of a two dimensional universe and how many of it's laws (those of 2 dimensional planar geometry) are seemingly 'broken' by three dimensional reality... movement would be a good example.

Science clearly does not know everything. Admitting that ignorance extends in this direction is no surrender of established scientific dogma.

I just read this in my subscription I get
Very interesting ideas hidden within the article.

Science, especially physics, is where we make assumptions. For example, we make assumptions that this theory is correct and then we get evidence, either to prove/disprove it. Theories are shaped, finetuned...and that is what I believe we're in the middle of today. All of "modern" physics such as the relativity ideas...theories such as M Theory are all being shaped. I think it's not the GUT, but it's a path leading to it. People say Einstein is wrong, he's not wrong...he may have just been thinking rather small..only 3 dimension..or maybe we just need a bit more tweaking and prodding until we have what we need to describe all the dimensions, all the realities...everything.

Now coming on to this bizarre oddity. People I've questioned believe it's a's not possible but here I see people not being able to open their mind. I hope, and to be honest, am wanting to believe it's from another dimension..if it is, I can't say and I'm sure none of us can at this point.

Now let's look at it. OPERA's team have spent 3 years trying to grill every single aspect to disprove what they've seen. No experimental error has cropped up yet. The whole point of LHC is to break new frontiers and if this is indeed from another dimension, we've definitely made some groundbreaking here...and it'll actually help to validate some modern theories.

Not only will it help to validate M Theory, but could show us a way to why gravity is weaker than the rest of the forces due to dimensions...

But let's remember, just because Weiler can make a model to bring us out of this trying to leave special relativity intact, doesn't mean it's right.

My fingers are crossed through and edging greatly to the extra dimensions, bulk and neutrinos leaking from the branes/bulk though

What's the purpose of the first 3? They are positions to us. The 4th and so on..would be definitely important..but we can't see it..but maybe other creatures or life could
Yah never know mate.
