Okay, so we draw in two dimensions, live in three, and think in four (I guess seeing as most of our thought is based around time…). What would a fifth dimension look like? And a sixth? Or a tenth? Could other dimensions exist outside our own lived experiences?
This may help you imagine how such a strange idea could exist:
“I have no doubt that in reality the future will be vastly more surprising than anything I can imagine. Now my own suspicion is that the Universe is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose.” J.B.S. Haldane, Possible Worlds and Other Papers (1927), p. 286.
It’s a pretty queer place.
The cover of a book written by a friend I made through this blog. James M. Harvey wrote “Singularia: Being At An Edge In Time – A Meditation and Thought Experiment While Crossing the Galactic Core” published by Alchemica Productions in Mullumbimby, NSW – a book based on the idea of the “Singularia” – defined as ‘A noun for which there is no plural form, but which is not grammatically uncountable. Example: information, humanity, consciousness.’ (p. vi.)
“Humanity” is one, and yet it is many. We are part of a universe, yet we contain a universe inside ourselves. Ten dimensions may exist, many universes within universes may exist, but it is all part of the same thing: it’s all a singularia.
This book reminded me that we are all together on this journey for truth and understanding of our place in the universe. Thank you James for contacting me and sharing your story. Check it out: http://www.singularia.com.au/
