...We WERE discussing the differences between the hypotheses of ETH vs IDH. The basic idea is that the ETH, what I call the "Bludgeon our way through space" approach, has some real issues, perhaps unsurmountable ones, but at least we can "do the math" on it. The IDH solves the problem, but we don't know the math to it. It amounts to a semantic solution, kind of like Gravitic Drive. What the hell is that? We've all done this, cheated with semantics.
I want to know and understand WHY this works and HOW it works. I want to know how Reality is strung together to allow this to work. I want to know what the math is. Where is the science to all this? Where is the beef? You've not provided that (not that you are required to.)

The Gut --- Since you are a proponent of the EDH, I was wondering if you were aware of the possibilities of multi-dimensions associated with the proponents of the string theory, that is, all sub-atomic particles a connected by some sort of string force; with as many as 16 different dimensions in our universe. I'm still not convinced about the string theory, yet it still intrigues me about all the mysterys still undiscovered in our universe.

Extra dimensions
Another mathematical result of string theory is that the theory only makes sense in a world with more than three space dimensions! (Our universe has three dimensions of space — left/right, up/down, and front/back.) Two possible explanations currently exist for the location of the extra dimensions:
• The extra space dimensions (generally six of them) are curled up (compactified, in string theory terminology) to incredibly small sizes, so we never perceive them.
• We are stuck on a 3-dimensional brane, and the extra dimensions extend off of it and are inaccessible to us.

As I understand it, the "extra" dimensions in String Theory are extremely small. They aren't big enough to hold anything meaningful:

If there is information that some of these dimensions are actually bigger, could you please cite a source? Thanks.

The only reason I can even post here is because...It is TRUE...you cannot differentiate between where Reality and Fantasy begin or end. Plus...as I have said before...EVERYTHING that I have said is either FACTS that can be looked up...such as my statements about the Washington DC Flyovers by Massive Numbers of UFO's.
Other statements...are of such information that has been already placed in the Public's Consciousness via various forms of Media as well as Direct Testimony of individuals who have stated they have either seen or experienced these forms of activity.
As far as there being a difference of where these supposed Alien Lifeforms come from or how they get here...Folding Space is INTERDIMENSIONAL TRAVEL via creation of a SINGULARITY or ONE DIMENSIONALITY.
There is also the concept of E.T. traveling between MULTIVERSAL ALTERNATE UNIVERSAL REALITIES wich are DIVERGENT CREATIONS of our UNIVERSAL REALITY.
This is a VERY complex subject and I think you might want to look some of this up as there is only so much room on a page! LOL! Regardless...I wish you luck in finding what you seek! Split Infinity
