: : ***There is only one dimension, we call it 3d, we do have theories of 2d (flat), and 4d (space/time) : : but these are nothing more than an attempt to explain phenomenon in our reality that we do not want to accept the real answers about, 5d (god) is another good example. If there were such a thing as other dimensions, they could only fit into a dimension with more "sides" or aspects. : : A 2d object can fit into a 3d space, but not the other way around. It is not impossible to imagine the reality of our universe, this is all there is, there is only one overall reality, there is really no such thing as a 2d object, or a 4d plane, or a 5d anything. Everything that exists has mass/form, and can always be said to have length, width, and hieght. these three measurements create depth, no matter how small any of the measurments are, like the thickness of a piece of paper, makes it a 3d object. : : Space is nothing more than the sum of the 3 measurments (volume). Time is nothing more than a constantly changing present. Any intelligent awareness can see change occuring, thus the illusion of time, when in actuallity it is nothing more than the movement of change occuring in the present. We can see the effects of this movement, and by the nature of its directions can often predict what change is occuring, but never is there a time when you can go back to something that has already occured in the changing present, nor go ahead to change that has not yet occured. : : Speed is something which is often used to "prove" that time exists, but this is nothing more than arriving at a point in the present change that is ahead of what we percived it would be when we got there. The whole thing with the rocket equation is a slowing of the rate of change in the present of a given body in relation to the rate of change occuring to another object in the same present. : : So, it is my belief that all effects we can be aware of are contained in a single reality, or dimension, it is our manner of trying to seperate them theoretically which allows us our illusions. : : There is also a big problem with this label of 3d when applied to the universe as a whole, for even by saying "whole" we concieve of there being a limit, or sides to it, but the universe in its actual endlessness cannot fit into this type of category, thus only "parts" as we designate them can be measured and labeled with dimensions, and it is this that we must realistically consider before we can begin to understand our true reality. Then we can begin to consider the problem of the reality of nothingness, which is the volume of reality where nothing exists in the current present, and which I would hope will provide some direction in fully understanding gravity, and eventually enable us to harness the power of its effects for energy and space travel.

: : In your opinion what do u think are the chances that we will be able to harness negative energy to open "worm holes" and have the ability to jump to other universes,if there are any n 1 day become "gods"

My opinions of a single reality devoid of differing dimensions would make wormholes impossible, the whole premise behind those holes are that the universe is a closed system/has limits or borders, thus making it positively curved. There are others that say negatively curved/infinite but I never can understand where they can get a positive or negative out of an infinite volume of nothing/space. The way I see it is that the universe goes on indefinitely in all directions from any point, thus there can be no curving or warping because it has inexhaustable volume (what is there to curve toward or against?) The deal with the big bang is that the matter is supposedly expanding like the dough rising theory, which is fine by me, I believe that is entirely possible, but the space it is moving through is not expanding, it is simply (not) there already. I guess since it is nothingness you could call it empty volume possible to be partially filled with material or something like that. Basically I think the idea of space being curved or flat is ridiculous because in these cases space is being shown as a "thing" when it is indeed nothing, thus cannot be curved or have any other properties of any kind. As far as I know of, gravity is the only known effect we do not understand, so it is my hope that when it is finally understood fully, we will be able to harness/focus/magnify it for the purpose of a non-depleting energy source as well as being used as tracks for propulsion thru space. Do you know much about the theory of worm holes?
