The Book of Creation was written by a bunch of men, kabalistic rabbis in this case, presumably under the inspiration of god and with revelation from someone who called himself Abraham, claiming to be THE Abraham.

The evidence for the authenticity of its revelation is its correlation with modern physics, and in particular string and superstring theory.

String theory only allows for 26 dimensions to exist. Any other number and the theory has infinities. This is a closed string theory that can only support forces, presumably the unified field, not matter. That bothered physicists. Even more bothersome is that tachyons can exist on the string. These are particles that travel faster than the speed of light.

So finally Max Green found a 10 dimensional string theory using supersymmetric particle partners to eliminate the infinities, in which fermions or matter can exist and no tachyons could exist. That was the jumping off point of modern string theory, which has since produced several 10-D theories (along with a 9-D theory) which Witten of Princeton unified in a 11-D theory that resulted in two 10-D worlds connected by a compactefied 11th dimension.

Vafa of Harvard, Witten's student, has derived a 13-D theory as well. Vafa also has a creation theory in which strings unfold into 4-D spacetime as other dimensions compactify. The compactification of 16 of the 26 dimensions into 10 dimensions has not been demonstrated yet. So the Book of Creation is predicting some physics that does not exist yet.

So the fermionic theories appear to be of variable dimensions. But no one has ever derived a non-super symmetric string theory in other than 26 dimensions.
