Although I have seen through space, it is not empty. It is full of dimensions. The ancients thought it was full of three dimensions. Then Einstein and Hilbert taught us that it was really four dimensions. String theorists first thought that it was full of ten dimensions. Witten made that 11 dimensions with M theory and Vafa made it 12 dimensions with F theory. Soon there will be an acceptable, to the physicists that rule this realm, a 13-d theory, probably named with another letter of the alphabet. Once physicist start doing things a certain way, they hardly ever stop, especially when it comes to naming things. Personally, I think there are 26 dimensions, not because there are 26 letters, although in the Hebrew tradition (eg. The Book of Creation), god formed the universe out of the letters of the alphabet. However, the 26 dimensions are slao predicted by the original string theory. All these extra dimensions are used to form matter and forces. In fact, there are 22 extra dimensions for the creation of force and matter, just the number of hebrew letters. Fortunately there are eniugh leters in the English alphabet for physicists to work their way up 26-D one D at a time.
