Lesson 24: Dimensions
This lesson is very cool.
We are going to take you on a journey through the dimensions of time and space. We are going to show you how to picture things in your mind that are impossible for most. For example, we live in a three-dimensional world. Everything in our 3D world has a length, width, and height. We move up, down, left, right, and diagonally. But are there other dimensions? Is there some other way we can move that we don’t know about? What would that even be like?
Can you picture something in your mind that has four dimensions? How about a five-dimensional world? Is that even possible?
It is! And we are going to show you how to take your three-dimensional mind and visualize and make sense of multi-dimensional worlds.
To do that, we must start with some basic geometry and begin working our way into the other dimensions.
In geometry, the dot above is known as a point. It has no length, width, or height. It has zero dimensions.
If you connect two points, you now have a line. A line has one dimension. Let’s call it length. It is easy to see nothing in our 3D world could exist in one dimension.
The familiar shapes pictured above are also known as planes, and they take us into a two-dimensional world. Planes have length and width. When we draw, we make two-dimensional representations of things in our 3D world.
To enter the 3D world, we have to add height. Now we have length, width, and height, and that brings us into the universe we are all familiar with. The picture above is actually a 2D picture, but your mind is interpreting it as 3D. Keep that in mind. That will be very important as we progress in this lesson.
Now here is where things start to get a little different. Are you ready to move into the fourth dimension? Well, it’s not quite that simple. The first three dimensions involve a direction in space. The fourth dimension involves time. To make sense of this, we need to go back to Albert Einstein and discuss what he called space-time.
Albert Einstein showed that space and time are inseparable. You can not have one without the other. So we are actually living in a four-dimensional universe. We have three dimensions of space and one dimension of time. Do you remember in past lessons when we talked about events? Consider a birthday party. To get to that birthday party, you not only have to know where it is located in the three dimensions of space, but you also have to know when in time, in the fourth dimension, the party is going to be. If any of the information is missing, you are probably not going to make it to the party. We function daily using four dimensions.
Let’s now look at a cool way of seeing the fourth dimension of time.
Take a look at the cube above. Although it is really a 2D image, it looks 3D to you. Think of the cube as the entire 3D universe. But you can also picture yourself outside the cube looking into the universe. This is the first step to getting to 4D.
Now let’s think of the cube as some event. Let’s use the birthday party example again, and let’s say it starts at 1:00 PM, October 18, 2050. Again picture yourself outside the cube looking in and watching the birthday party event. It is pretty easy to see the 4D event going on in space, but what about time? To picture that, let’s stack some cubes.
The stacking of the cubes represents a progression in time. View the bottom cube. You can witness the party around one o’clock. View the middle cube. You can witness the party around two o’clock. View the top cube, and you can witness the party around three o’clock.
Picture yourself in the circle outside the boxes. You can move around in that circle in any way you want. You have the ability to move back and forth between the boxes and see what is going on. You can see 1:00, then 3:00, then back to 1:00, then 2:00. You are moving through time.
Now here is where it gets a little tricky. We need to discuss space-time some more. Space-time is the combination of space and time. They are inseparable. So the cubes you are looking at are both space and time. We live in a 4D world, 3 space, and 1 time. This means the next dimension up for us is the 5th dimension. So how do we picture that?
Introducing the Tesseract, also known as a Hypercube.
Look at the image above. Picture the smaller cube in the center to be our entire 4D universe from the beginning of time till the end. Remember, our time is not separable from our space. Picture yourself stepping out of the smaller cube and finding yourself inside the larger cube. You can move anywhere you want in the larger cube to observe any point on the smaller cube. This means you can see any event in space and time in our universe from the beginning until the end of our universe.
Think about that. You can view the end of the universe. So, the end of the universe does not mean the end of everything. Which means it does not mean the end for YOU.
Get ready for this next statement.
Our universe is now all ONE for you. There is only NOW. Everything and every time are right there for you NOW to observe and experience however you wish. You are coming closer to the realm of your Higher Self and Infinite Intelligence.
Give this lesson some time to take hold of your mind and then go tell some people.
