As for an argument...not me. But I do know some of the laws of phyisics concerning Einsteins Reletivity Theory. In space you have 3 dimensions, up & down, left & right, forward & back. The agreed 4th dimension is time. Time changes space. The continum is a straight flow of time. Doesn't matter what space it changes, the space is still there just different. Billions of years ago, Earth did not occupy this space. But the same space is still here and time changed space. The theory goes that if any of the laws of physics concerning space and time are changed or inverted it would stand to reason that there are other dimensions. This is a disruption in the continum. There is no proof of this. Read Einstein's theories and Quantum mechanics, there many notes concerning space time continum. You may want to direct your questions in the Black Hole Theory Forum. That question belongs there.
