Hello, gorgeous readers! To begin today’s blog, let’s start with the Mobius Strip. You can make your own! It’s easy! Take a simple strip of paper. Normally, one could fold the strip around to make a ring such that the end corners of the strip would align so:
Just twist one end to create the arrangement
and make a ring.
If my explanation makes no sense (which it normally will not), Google Mobius Strip. Some genius will make it seem like arts and crafts. In any case, you’ve just made a one-sided object, reader. Make sense? If it doesn’t try drawing a line along the Mobius Strip down the center. You will cover all of it without taking your pencil off the strip or going around an edge. Now, on to business.
I have made a wondeful discovery. It seems farfetched, but it could be the answer to many problems in physics. First, consider the Zero Dimension. How does it work? It’s an infinitisimally small point. The reader should be able to recognize a point, and that its expansion to another point creates the First Dimension. First dimensional constructs called lines can be expanded to other lines to create planes. Planes can be expanded to form volumes. Volumes can be expanded to create what we will call “shifts.” And so on. Those are all familiar concepts. Now consider going the other way from the Zero Dimension. That’s right: negative dimensions. I prefer the term “Antispace.”
Much like how negative numbers had to be accepted as the numbers that counterpated positive numbers to produce 0, we should treat Antispace as the form of spacetime that combines with traditional spacetime to produce points (The Zero Dimension). Let’s start small. Consider a line and an antiline. Say that a particle could travel either path. At this moment, the particle will collapse to nothing. Keep in mind that nothing exists. Well, that’s a nice concept, but how do antilines work? They expand on the Zero Dimension, as geometry would tell us, except they are arranged the “other” way. This is called hypersymmetry. The “other” way is clearly impossible to imagine. The reader should view the situation like the Electromagnetic Spectrum, where the are wavelengths above and below what he or she can see. Now that we’ve established antilines, we can make antiplanes, which have “another” orientation. In fact, for every traditional spacial-temporal dimension, there is a “negative” counterpart. Keep in mind this idea could (and indeed will) involve the other kinds of opposites as well, such that there can be ^-lines, <-lines, >-lines, etc. (C.. 1.) For the best physical example I can give of negative dimensions, consider what you did above with the Mobius Strip. Of course you didn’t travel into “other” space, but you still reduced the sides of the object, similar to reducing dimensionality.
As much as I hate to admit it, PrinceJonathan Pruitt may have mentioned something credible. He once asked in my class about the 2.5 dimension. Everyone laughed, especially since the idea spawned from his playing Viewtiful Joe. I, as well, thought, “Proposterous!” Today I have come to reconsider. A 2.5 dimension is simply the “bending” into the third dimension. While it is true that dimensions are dimensions and are much like integers (Ha! We can say integers now that there are negative dimensions!) in the instances where travel breaks into higher spacetime, the transitions are fractional dimensions. Imagine the 0.5 dimension for a second. Along a 1-dimensional line, we could travel two ways. In the 0.5 dimension, we could travel only one way. Never the other. This leads me to believe the Universe as we see it should be labeled 3.5-D, as we can travel through time, but in only one way.
These ideas open up the field for not only imaginary dimensions, but also ethereal dimensions. As some of you may know, ethereal numbers have the property that when multiplied by 0 they do not equal 0. The first ethereal is u (the Arabic symbol noon, if I could type it). 0 x u = 1. Let’s dive into our memory banks and pull out the old formula F = ma. Say a force of 1 N is applied to a massless object, such as a neutrino. What happens? Typically, we would say it doesn’t move, but by this classic formula, we see that it moves with an acceleration of u. This is into an ethereal dimension, mind you, and since the ethereals behave like 0 in some regards, it appears no acceleration occured.
We now have an interesting model for our Universe. It resembles a giant “cone.” Well, that is if we use only binary oppositivity, but you get the idea. At the center is the Zero Dimension, and from it frow 11 dimensions both ways (or 26, or infinite, depending on you dimensionality theories). When creation of a universe occurs, it inflates both ways. This explains why we don’t see antimatter naturally. It exists in Antispace! We have the power to artificially “oreint” matter to go the “other” way, so as to create antimatter. It is well known that matter and anitmatter obliterate each other upon contact, but what really happens is the return to the Zero Dimension.
Today, we united many new ideas with old ones to give ourselves a reasonable new idea about how our Universe works. If something puzzled you about this blog, post a confused comment or send me a message and I will explain. Until next time, thanks for reading my crazy ideas!
