The age old problem,as described by certain philosophers.
And confirmed by is it the Heisenberg principal?
When observed,the outcome is different than when unobserverd.
"If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"
Is an example.
By viewing or being aware of an event,we the humans can and do alter the outcome of said event.
That sounds like subconscious telepathy to me-or confirms the quantuum theory,or both.
We are multidimensional timetraveling beings.
There is no doubt, that a paradigm shift is on the horizon with simulation theory and digital physics presenting more and more evidence that our
assumed physical reality is really just information.
In another discussion someone was pointing out that we only have 4 dimensions the forth being Time however we are on the verge of main stream science
accepting that a fifth dimension exists and I broke that down figured it was worth sharing here for food for thought.
One thing we know with certainty is that our reality exists in a 3rd dimension and with time being the fourth that brings about the animation of
change as information cycles out with each delta T.
However, in quantum mechanics there is also superposition which in itself provides evidence that probability also factors in to particle interactions.
Probability is also known as the 5th dimension, and through superposition we observe and measure probability.
If we look at Carl Sagan's flatlander view of dimensions we know that information propagates into the next geometrical manifold allowing more data;
when information from that next manifold is observed from the lower dimension, the information is truncated. That is in the 2nd dimension XY the Z
axis from the third dimension cannot be measured, so 3rd dimensional observations in the second dimension truncate Z thus all the flatlanders see is
the third dimension described in the constraints that XY will allow.
In the fourth dimension we have quadruplets so the coordinate system is [x,y,z,T] [ T standing for delta-T, or the triangular simplex] and in the
third dimension we can only observe forth dimensional information as [x,y,z] as we cannot observe the quadruplets. Mathematically we can so we have
tesseracts and hyperspheres which are geometrical abstractions in 3rd dimensional space which show how a cube would behave and look if it had
Although we cannot directly see the 4th dimension from it's topology, we do see it's effect as time when 3rd dimensional information changes as
time. In the 5th dimension we have 5-simplex, 5-Cube and 5-orthoplex. Since we are now working with simplexes we don't really assign too many
variable representations and simply extend the mathematical representation of dimensions for each simplex. I suppose we could assign the 5th
dimension "P" for probability if we need to add it's axis. [x,y,z,T,P] or stick with the simplex [3,3,3,3] but for the sake of simplifying
dimensions and demonstrating how information propagates, dropping the T,P relative to the 3rd dimension is easy to visualize and understand... all we
get in the third dimension relative to probability is [x,y,z] and it's effects which is noted in superposition and that type of particle
I wouldn't say the 4th or 5th are spacial dimensions rather larger informational sub-sets relative to how information and math moves with dimensional
Mathematically the 5th dimension is a very valid construct, and if it exists we would expect some type of behaviour in the 3rd dimension which would
represent it's shadow and that my friend is superposition and probability observed in quantum mechanics.
This is also where thought experiments like Schroedinger's Cat come into play and David Bohm's Many Worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics. I
have linked already the UCAL resonator which shows that a supercooled superconductor switch when invoked by a qubit shows the switch as being both on
and off in the same volume of space.
We are far more cut off from the 5th dimension because the fact we are constrained by the 3rd dimension and how that information is truncated.
Here are some articles on Probability.
