Imagining The Tenth Dimension – flash animation
Wow. Wow. Wow. Oh My God. Whoa…. WHOA!
This animation was one of the most mind-blowingly incredible things I have ever seen in my life. I am going to watch it again very soon now. I’m not religious, or even that spiritual — but watching this video could be described as the closest thing to a religious experience that I have ever had..
I mean, by the end of watching this, you can actually understand the following sentence:
In String theory, physicists tell us that Superstrings vibrating in the tenth dimension are what create the subatomic particles which make up our universe, and all of the other possible universes as well. In other words, all possibilities are contained within the tenth dimension, which would appear to be the concept we have just built for ourselves as we imagined the ten dimensions, built one upon another.
They also have a text-version, which is handy for referencing back after watching the animation (easier random access).
Also, I think I am finally convinced that time may really be the 4th dimension, although to me a spatial dimension is something you should be able to move 2 directions in. But the Moebius Strip analogy really serves to explain why you can only perceive going one direction in the 4th dimension. I think there still might be “extra spatial dimensions” between the 3rd dimension, and what this animation calls the 4th dimension. But I might just be full of crap. :)
But either way… Once you get past the spatial dimensions, it seems that there are only 7 additional dimensions (giving a total of 10). There is nothing past the 10th dimension.
Can anyone think of anything 11-dimensional? Please?
