Modern theories tell us that there are ten spatial, or "space-like" dimensions to our reality. My name is Rob Bryanton. With this project, I have.

The thought of any theory of the universe being too extravagant is, to my way of thinking, quite amusing. According to the most popular version of string theory, the six higher dimensions above the four we live in are most likely curled up on themselves, unimaginably small, and all around us.

New theories like these are revealing surprising dualities where the tenth dimension and the eleventh dimension are in a sense equivalent to each other: this may be a fortuitous coincidence since, in the journey we are about to take, I will contend that time really is an illusion, and therefore the tenth spatial dimension is as far as you need to go.

All of these theories tell us that it is the harmonics of superstring vibrations happening in the tenth spatial dimension that create the basic laws that define our reality— Introduction 6 Imagining the Tenth Dimension the strength of gravity, the charge, spin and nature of subatomic particles, and so on.

Whether string theory is ultimately proven to be right or wrong really has no bearing on the journey we are about to take: the point of this exercise will be that by imagining all ten dimensions, we will have imagined a fabric that can account for all aspects of reality.

A tall order! We have grown comfortable with the idea that we live in a three-dimensional world, and that time can be thought of as an additional dimension. We will use the relationships between those first four dimensions to gradually build a mental image of what each succeeding dimension could be like.

By taking our imagination through one level at a time, we will arrive at a construct much larger than what we could ever hope to imagine all at once, building one layer upon another until we get to the tenth dimension. A point, in geometry, has no size, no dimension, it is purely a descriptor which indicates a certain value or location in a system. In other words, a point is just a pointer. The first dimension, for our purposes, is any straight line passing through two points see Illustration 1.

But what we have also drawn is a representation of a two dimensional object. The first line we drew has only length or rather it represents only length, for of course if we were to look at One — A Quick Tour of Ten Dimensions Imagining the Tenth Dimension 9 that line with a microscope we would see that it has not only length but a good deal of width as well , so that line represents a one-dimensional object.

While the book is an attempt to popularize the notion of multidimensional geometry, it is also commonly One — A Quick Tour of Ten Dimensions Imagining the Tenth Dimension 11 described as a clever satire on the social, moral, and religious values of the day. What would a three dimensional creature such as ourselves look like to a two-dimensional Flatlander?

To a Flatlander, we 3D beings would be able to pop in and out of their two- dimensional world as if by magic, and our texture and form would be quite inexplicable.

In the same way, we humans would find the 2D information that a Flatlander sees to be a useless and confusing jumble of lines all in the same plane. Now picture this. An ant marching from the left to the right side of a newspaper page could be thought of as a Flatlander walking along in a two dimensional world. What if we want to help that ant get to his destination sooner, so we fold the newspaper to make it meet in the middle?

Suddenly, the ant is able to finish his cross-paper trek much more quickly and go on his way.

When we folded the paper, we took the representation of a two-dimensional object and moved it through the third dimension. If there had been Flatlanders living on that page, the ant would seem to have suddenly disappeared from one location, and magically reappeared at another. By using this mental shortcut, imagining dimension three as what we move through to jump from one point in dimension two to another, we have a tool which will be useful in imagining the higher dimensions see Illustration 3.

One answer would be—its duration. By now most of us have gotten used to the idea that the fourth dimension can be thought of as time. But because we perceive things in the third dimension, we in a similar way to the Flatlanders in the dimension below us only see a three dimensional cross-section of our fourth- dimensional bodies when we look at ourselves in a mirror.

Time is a line which joins or passes through two points. But those points are of indeterminate size, which means they can be of any size we choose to imagine them being. So what we are also imagining is that the fourth dimension is what joins the entirety of three-dimensional space to a corresponding but different three-dimensional space elsewhere in time. To say it another way, the universe we are in now is slightly but unquestionably different from the universe we were in one minute ago, and those two universes are separated or joined by a line drawn in the fourth dimension, which we call time.

We are going to argue here that time really is just another spatial One — A Quick Tour of Ten Dimensions 14 Imagining the Tenth Dimension dimension, and that the dimensions above it can be easily imagined using that line of reasoning see Illustration 4. All I can do is ask those readers to please set aside the conclusions they might be jumping to about the usefulness of this text and to continue to examine the line of reasoning being followed.

As we imagine dimensions higher than four, we are going to picture a simple and symmetric cycle that continues to repeat as we move up from one dimension to the next. We saw that we could sum up dimensions one, two, and three as a line, a split, and a fold. If dimension four is a line, what would that mean if dimensions five and six were a split and a fold?

Take a long thin strip of paper, add one twist to it, and tape the ends of the strip together, forming a loop. By the time your line meets itself along the loop again, you will have drawn on both sides of the paper. To us, time feels like a straight line, moving from yesterday to today to tomorrow. But as we move along that straight line, our choices, chance, and the choices of others are constantly branching in the fifth dimension.

When we look back in time, it still feels like a straight line to us, but that straight line is an illusion. One — A Quick Tour of Ten Dimensions 16 Imagining the Tenth Dimension If you again imagine yourself as that fourth-dimensional creature that is a long undulating snake, how would you represent the multiple choices for action you face at every moment?

Now imagine this: choice and circumstance represent the place in that shape where the branch occurs, and at any moment the number of branches any one of us could take must approach an infinite number. As you read this text, your fifth dimensional self might now have two main branches—one would be the version of you that continues reading into the next paragraph, while another would be the one who decides to take a break and go do something else.

Of course, those are not the only options for what could happen in the next few seconds, so the available branches would really be much more complex than that see Illustration 5. How would we get to the world where human evolution had progressed differently and we all still have tails? If a time machine were possible, we could wind the clock back to whatever the precipitous events may be which those situations hinge upon, change the events, then travel forward in time again to see the new result or, at least, one of the very many new possible results.

But another much quicker path for our time machine would be like our ant marching across the newspaper: if we could fold the fifth dimension through the sixth dimension, we would be able to jump from one possible world to another without having to travel the long way back in time and forward again. Likewise, the sixth dimension would be what we move through to jump from one fifth- dimensional point to another see Illustration 6.

Imagining the Tenth Dimension

A point can be used to define a location in any dimension. Here we have given four co-ordinates to establish a point in the fourth dimension: three of the co-ordinates define the location in space, while the fourth co-ordinate defines the location of the point in time.

Likewise, the fourth dimension is a line joining two points in time, but it can just as easily be used to describe a specific moment in time, so we can also sometimes find ourselves imagining the fourth dimension as a point rather than a line.

Now we get to the seventh dimension. One — A Quick Tour of Ten Dimensions Imagining the Tenth Dimension 19 One — A Quick Tour of Ten Dimensions 20 Imagining the Tenth Dimension The seventh dimension joins all of the possible universes our big bang could have generated to all of the possible outcomes at the other end, and treats the entire package as a single point.

What will happen at the end of the universe? There could be many other fates we can imagine for our universe as well, some of which could be the result of unlikely coincidences, and some of which could be the result of the interventions of some unimaginably advanced civilization in the far distant future. What makes the seventh dimension different is we now take the concept of all of the possible beginnings and their links to all of the possible conclusions for our particular big bang universe, and view this all simultaneously, as if it were a single point see Illustration 7.

So, for our universe, we could indeed say that a point in the seventh dimension represents infinity. What could possibly be the next split from what we commonly know as infinity?

First of all, we should back up a moment and look at the seventh dimension a little more closely. We described the infinity of possible timelines for our universe as being a point in the seventh dimension. But that would only be part of the story, because we should then be imagining another point in the seventh dimension and drawing a line to that point to complete our description of that dimension. What would that second point be, then?

It would be the multiplicity of timelines that, when perceived as a whole, represent some other completely different universe that would have been generated by some other set of initial conditions. We exist in what seems to be an impossibly complex universe where an astounding number of forces and events have aligned to create the extremely unlikely result of intelligent life as we know it today. For instance, if the force of gravity had been slightly different at the beginning, the result would have been a universe that quickly flew apart and never created stars, or a universe that immediately collapsed back in upon itself.

Physicists tell us that if the constants that define our universe had varied outside of surprisingly small ranges the results, to our way of thinking, would have been catastrophic. Even within those ranges, the result could easily have been a universe that was similar to ours but still made up of a combination of elements or physical structures which did not readily support life as we know it.

Most would be completely different in ways that we can only begin to imagine, and many would unfortunately be unstable, short-lived or boringly uneventful. In fact, most would have physical conditions which would immediately cause a human being to cease to function. This, then, would be a way for us to imagine the additional dimensions that will get us to the tenth.

If a point in the seventh dimension represents all the possible past and future versions of the universe we live in, as generated by the very specific conditions of the very specific big bang that started our universe, then a line in the seventh dimension could be drawn to a point representing some other infinity that results from some other big bang.

That line could be drawn to absolutely any other unrelated universe, or it could be one One — A Quick Tour of Ten Dimensions Imagining the Tenth Dimension 23 that is closely related to our own. We can imagine that travelling along that line, then, might show us a chaotic collection of seemingly unrelated infinities, or it might be an exploration for instance of the infinities that would have resulted from varying one specific parameter, such as the force of gravity. Still, no matter where we were on that seventh-dimensional line, there would also be branches splitting off from that line that we could explore, and as soon as we choose to also consider one of those alternate lines we are entering the eighth dimension see Illustration 8.

How would you instantaneously jump from one line exploring these different big bang universes to another completely different line? You would fold the eighth dimension through the ninth dimension.

To an observer on one eighth-dimensional line of infinites resulting from a particular range of big bang conditions, you would suddenly pop out of existence. To another observer in some other completely different range of infinities associated with a separate line of big bang universes, you would suddenly appear as if by magic.

By now we are imagining a seemingly infinite number of infinities! The same dizzying order of magnitude jumps that we go through as we try to imagine the size of the solar system, to the size of a galaxy, to the size of the universe, have been compounded again and again as we rise up through the dimensions.

And in much the same way as it is impossible for us to simultaneously imagine the scale of an atom as we imagine the scale of the solar system, the only way the mind can grasp the immensity of what we are building here is to imagine it one layer at a time see Illustration 9.

And so, finally, we arrive at the tenth dimension. Effectively, what has happened to us is our beginning and end point of any lines that we attempt to draw in this dimension have become so all-inclusive that the two points are always right on top of each other, and our line is effectively the same as that dimensionless point we first imagined. As we had set out to One — A Quick Tour of Ten Dimensions 26 Imagining the Tenth Dimension do, it is now more easy for us to imagine the tenth dimension as the uncut fabric from which is constructed all possible universes, all possible beginnings and endings, all possible branches within all possible timelines, but without the nuances added by the geometries of the dimensions below.

But consider this: if strings vibrating in the tenth dimension create the physical reality we experience in the dimensions below, when there is no vibration of those strings, is there nothingness in the dimensions below? From that perspec- tive, the tenth dimension as described in these pages starts to feel like more of a fit see Illustration Speaking poetically, the tenth dimension is like white noise, an endless field of all colours and vibrations blurred together.

Because it encompasses all possible realities without delineation between those realities, it is like a void. Where things do get interesting is when we cut cross-sections out of that formlessness to view some specific aspect: like our two-dimensional Flatlander viewing the feet of a human creature visiting from the dimension above as ten lines that become two, there is no way for anyone in a dimension less than ten to perceive all of the possibilities that the tenth dimension contains.

In any dimension lower than ten, all that can be viewed of reality is cross sections. Instead, they are waves of probabilities. The part of this theory that takes some getting used to is it has been demonstrated that it is the act of observing those probability waves which collapses them into one specific state.

Since the discovery of the Higgs Boson in , completing the Standard Model of particle physics, the idea of looking at such extensions has become more central. But what if it is our perception as a quantum observer that makes us believe that time flows only in one direction?

I'm really starting to agree with people like Elon Musk who are saying "how do you know you're not in some kind of a virtual reality right now? It is for this reason that I like to refer to the fifth dimension as our "probability space", and this relates very nicely to a theory which is now gaining acceptance: If it tickled your fancy, you could place that first observer at, for example, years ago.
