In the first book of the ILLOREAEN SAGA series, ‘CATASTROPHE! (available on kindle – or UK),it is revealed that the Illoreaen Sensitives could visualize reality from unusual aspects including visualising more than the three familiar spatial dimensions of depth, width and height.
The reality of spatial dimensions beyond the three we are used to, plays a role in the Illoreaen Saga series.
The series are set in the time before, during and immediately after the Toba super volcano Catastrophe. It tells the tale of how a few survivors managed to escape the world-wide destruction and established a foot-hold where humans could start anew.
Herewith a discussion JaYan had with Questa:
‘I’ve been thinking of your demonstration of how you Sensitives can visualize abstract concepts as well as an additional primary direction.’
‘Well, imagine that I was standing at the entrance of the palisade when a flyer suddenly flew past. I can describe the position of the flyer at that moment as flying past at one-and-a-half paces high, one pace to my left and in line with me.
‘When the flyer hits the Giant who was attacking me, I could describe the flyer’s new position, five time units later, as half a pace to my right, two paces high and five paces in front of me, .
‘Similarly I can look back and see that one of MaGan’s sharp-shooters had launched the flyer from his bow, three time unit before it flew past me, from three paces behind me, two paces to my left and one pace high.
‘I have now described the flyer’s route in terms of time as well as the three primary directions. It is sufficient information for my purpose. If I understand your demonstration correctly, you can have knowledge of a the flyers position and route in a further primary direction. Is that correct?’
‘In essence, yes.’
‘How is that knowledge of the flyers condition useful?’
Questa couldn’t answer the question directly, but she knew that the knowledge is sometimes essential.
‘I’ll have to think how to explain our use of this knowledge in words. I’ll answer you tomorrow.’
Please don’t think that I am being awkward. I just want to know,’ JaYan said giving her a friendly smile.
The answer to JaYan’s question will appear in the blogs
From Wikipedia on m-theory the following:
“In everyday life, there are three familiar dimensions of space: height, width and depth. Einstein’s general theory of relativity treats time as a dimension on par with the three spatial dimensions; in general relativity, space and time are not modelled as separate entities but are instead unified to a four-dimensional spacetime. In this framework, the phenomenon of gravity is viewed as a consequence of the geometry of spacetime.
In spite of the fact that the universe is well described by four-dimensional spacetime, there are several reasons why physicists consider theories in other dimensions. In some cases, by modeling spacetime in a different number of dimensions, a theory becomes more mathematically tractable, and one can perform calculations and gain general insights more easily.[e] There are also situations where theories in two or three spacetime dimensions are useful for describing phenomena in condensed matter physics. Finally, there exist scenarios in which there could actually be more than four dimensions of spacetime which have nonetheless managed to escape detection.“
A November 2016 article in Scientific America discusses the similarity of worm holes and entanglement and in a previous issue the mathematics used in string theory was discussed and its use in the mathematics describing entanglement.
I have a problem with equating time as a similar dimension to spatial dimensions when considering movement of a particle (or ship):
I can see that the position of a ship can be accurately described by the known three spatial dimensions and time:
Example: The ship is at sea level (Height) 3 degrees North and 5 degrees East (width and depth or longitude and latitude) on Thursday at 9am.
Movement is another matter: Speed is Distance divided by Time (d/t) and acceleration is Distance divided by Time squared.
Distance divided by Distance (or Distance squared) describes the course of a particle (or ship) in space.
Example: The ship is sailing in a north-west direction. For every sea-mile it moves north it also moves a sea-mile west. I.e. 1 sea-mile west per sea-mile west or Distance divided by Distance.
Similarly Distance divided by Distance squared describes movement along a curve.
If time and spatial dimensions are the same what does Time divided by Distance (or Distance squared) mean?
I cannot visualise the effect. Maybe the Illoreaens can.
Please blog me your opinions and knowledge.
