« Previous Day Next Day »

As Elwood ages, I am reminded daily how much I am going to struggle when his time comes to cross the rainbow bridge. The biggest downside of the big dogs is their comparative short lives, we knew that when we adopted him. But it is still going to wreck me when the day comes.

Explaining the "ten dimensions"

This is far from a concluded reality of modern science, but for various reasons I found myself looking to better understand the dimensions beyond the 4 that I can completely understand. This write up was very simple and helped me understand what they each do, in theory.

How does it work? No idea. This only gave me a surface level of the 'what' for each dimension, absolutely nothing for the 'why' or 'how' - which is exactly what I wanted, but I can imagine others who might be looking for those two elements of context as well.

When someone mentions "different dimensions," we tend to think of things like parallel universes – alternate realities that exist parallel to our own, but where things work or happened differently. However, the reality of dimensions and how they play a role in the ordering of our Universe is really quite different from this popular characterization.

To break it down, dimensions are simply the different facets of what we perceive to be reality. We are immediately aware of the three dimensions that surround us on a daily basis – those that define the length, width, and depth of all objects in our universes (the x, y, and z axes, respectively).

Beyond these three visible dimensions, scientists believe that there may be many more. In fact, the theoretical framework of Superstring Theory posits that the universe exists in ten different dimensions. These different aspects are what govern the universe, the fundamental forces of nature, and all the elementary particles contained within.
