mean a multidimensional RIP.
BTW, all the post WASN´T an answer in strict sense. It was more of an approximation, and it raises even more questions, wich we can´t answer . Quite
hint: we ARE the hole...
Basically it's a bunch of fancy words ...
It doesn't matter how many dimensions you put up there, any 3+n D universe, *MUST* exist in the 3D universe. No buts ... what these theories are
basically saying, is that you have 3D space, and then you have time, and speed etc ... so, any matter can increase in speed, and decrease in matter
... that is, there x,y,z variants can decrease ... but they can never become "non-existant" in the 3D Universe. Even if we use 0 in our every day
math, 0 is a paradoxical value ... space isn't a vacuum, vacuum isn't zero material.
So, back to basics ... whatever ... you can't have speed, without space ... nor can you have time, without space. All these are derived from matter,
which is the fundamental thing ...
Another thing, about matter ... which is rarely talked about ... if an atom is a football field, then it's nucleus is the football in the center of
it. And an electron is a fly, flying around it. What I am saying is, that distance in matter and between matter is mostly "seemingly" empty space
... but since we know, there can be no empty space ... viola.
Another thing, about the Universe. I do not know God ... maybe there is one, maybe there isn't. But, nothing in our known Universe, is a question
about the existance of God, or not. Religion is just politics ... God, being the political authoratitve entity. However, to a scientist ... it
should not concern him. All we know, is nature around us ... so whatever is out there, we *MUST* try and explain it from the known universe around
And what do we know, about the Universe around us? THERE IS NO SINGULARITY. There is nothing, that *just* happens, and then stops happening ...
whatever we consider, to be a singularity ... is just a point, in that paraplex of time. So whatever is, must have been ... and must continue to be
However, if we'd discover that we are alone in the Universe ... that would be a pretty good evidence for the existance of a singularity. But
everywhere around us, on this planet ... our known Universe. Because even if we can look into space, this planet is our only *known* universe. And
in this Universe, everything is in multitude ... everywhere, there is diversity ...
And we can only measure anything in the Universe, with a measurement stick that we know. To go and say "multiple dimensions" is just as good as
saying "god almighty". Because it's something "we do not know", and we're just grasping straws, to explain the unexplainable. But it doesn't matter
wether you "feel" tht "Big Bang" explains it better than "Genesis" ... in both cases, you are using the Unknown to explain the Unknown ... and that,
ladies and gentlemen is just "crap". It doesn't matter who is the high and mighty fella that proclaims it.
Because it's just a bunch of big fancy words, that "appear" plausable in the ear of the listener. Just as much as the book of "genesis" does to the
religious. The person who "believes" it, just finds it more comforting to believe in something, even if it isn't graspable, rather than sitting under
a big and empty sky, constantly afraid that one day he might fall down into that big empty nothingness. or up ... yeah, whatever.
