How does one define or describe hyperspace and multi-dimensional realities? I have an intuitive knowledge about these, but they are so difficult to explain.
Physicists have been trying to model and prove them since Einstein in the early 1900’s. So many scientists failed to find the perfect equation which fits both micro and macrocosms.
Dr. Michio Kaku has been writing and presenting his views about this topic worldwide. Here is a quote from one of his articles which I feel contains a unique metaphor and illustration.
“Then I understood…
The carp could see rippling shadows on the surface of the pond. The third dimension would be invisible to them, but vibrations in the third dimensions would be clearly visible. These ripples might even be felt by the carp, who would invent a silly concept to describe this, called “force.” They might even give these “forces” cute names, such as light and gravity. We would laugh at them, because, of course, we know there is no “force” at all, just the rippling of the water.
Today, many physicists believe that we are the carp swimming in our tiny pond, blissfully unaware of invisible, unseen universes hovering just above us in hyperspace. We spend our life in three spatial dimensions, confident that what we can see with our telescopes is all there is, ignorant of the possibility of 10 dimensional hyperspace. Although these higher dimensions are invisible, their “ripples” can clearly be seen and felt. We call these ripples gravity and light. The theory of hyperspace, however, languished for many decades for lack of any physical proof or application. But the theory, once considered the province of eccentrics and mystics, is being revived for a simple reason: it may hold the key to the greatest theory of all time, the “theory of everything.” – Michio Kaku
