Imagine if there was an explanation for everything in the universe? Einstein was working on a theory upon his death and it was coined the "Theory of Everything."
Over the last couple of decades, physicists have been trying to make sense of an uncomfortable discovery. Their discovery was that it is utterly impossible to pinpoint the location of a sub atomic atom (and mind you, we're all made up of sub-atomic atoms, folks). Turns out that sub-atomic particles are able to be in more than one place at one time. They do not exist in our universe alone but rather it seems that they flutter in and out of an infinite number of parallel universes.
There's a breathtaking new theory floating around out there called "M Theory." M theory theorizes that we live within 11 dimensions - not the 3 dimensional universe that we've come to accept. (Interestingly enough, mystics and spiritualist have been claiming such places exist for centuries.)
Many of you may have heard of String Theory which appeared in the early 1980's. This theory states that rather than particles being the base composition of solid matter, a tiny invisible string formation is the basis and matter emanates from these strings. If you pluck a guitar string a certain way, the result is a frequency emission. Lots of different plucking results in many different frequencies. String Theory theorizes that the universe is a symphony. Tiny little notes bouncing off the vibrating strings.
After the String Theory folks debated with the Super Gravity guys for years over the matter, they eventually did something unexpected - and they accepted the 11th dimension. When this was done, suddenly something magical happened. String Theory equated beautifully into the 11 dimensions and suddenly everything seems to start making sense.
But there was another change in store and this was a change in the strings themselves. The strings were stretched and combined into one vast structure - a membrane if you will. A grid plane. This new theory, a combination of String Theory and Super Gravity mentality, is called "M Theory." M Theory has been related to Magic Theory, Membrane Theory, Madness Theory, Mystery Theory, Mother Theory.
Now let's take a close look at the 11th dimension. It's a place where rules are abandoned and it's much, much smaller than you could ever imagine. It's one trillionth of a millimeter. Take a millimeter measurement and divide it by 10 - with 20 zeros after it. So what does this mean?
Sit down, folks. It means that this 11th dimension exists only one trillionth of a millimeter from every single point in our 3 dimensional world. Can you grasp that? It's closer than your clothing, and yet you don't know its there. It's a floating membrane universe and it's so very close, we should all be tasting it.
Not only does M Theory and an 11th dimension equate beautifully, it also explains gravity. Gravity's overall weakness has been mystifying physicists and scientists for years. The entire earth is pulling against you, yet you can pick things up and jump up and down freely. The 11th dimension solves this problem for the first time. If the 11th dimension is the natural home of gravity, then it would be as strong as the other forces in the 11th dimension - but by the time it reaches us, its weakened. We see the tail end of gravity and its weakness is finally explained - but only with the introduction of a parallel universe.
As further study would have it, physicists began finding parallel universes in every corner of the 11th dimension within their new equations. Some of these universes are sheets of energy, some are looped like donuts, some are cylindrical and some are round. So who lives there? What does the 11th dimension look like? Imagine a ball of Swiss cheese with holes, loops and intersections in membrane form. Atoms may dissolve there and it, most likely, is an unstable environment for solid stable matter to form within.
M Theory is strange, but does it properly equate into the single most important question - the matter of "singularity?" The big bang, the creation of our universe? Yes, it actually does. You see, universes move through the 11th dimension at forceful rates and collisions are possible. If you have two, rough-edged rippling, flexing, waving membrane universes that happen to collide and hit at different points and at different times. . . their rippling edges agitating against one another will cause the formation of solid matter and radiation to start lifting off. Voila'! What was energy magically becomes solid matter.
When two universes collide . . . reality begins to form as a "byproduct" of sorts.
A complete explanation of the birth of the universe is born. Physicists can now take the laws of physics back to the big bang . . . and before it. Time can now be followed "through" the singularity and all can be beautifully explained through M Theory for the very first time.
If M Theory is ultimately accepted by the entire scientific community, it means that Einsteins missing Theory of Everything has finally been found. It also means that our mysterious universe . . . is actually no special place. Rather it's a very, very small part of a "MultiVerse" where universes coexist with other universes in the process of expansion. It's a bubble floating in an ocean of thousands of other bubbles.
Spiritualists for ages have firmly believed that the 4th dimension is the home of the spirit world and the dead. Theoretically, a four-dimensional figure (spirit) would pass through the third dimension (our dimension) in a changing three-dimensional form. This has the possibility to rationalize the sudden appearance and disappearance of ghosts and other visions reported by humans. A spirit residing in the fourth dimension would have the ability to be near a person or location always, but remain unseen unless it desired to pass through the third dimension.
So whats next for physicists willing to push the envelope? Well, they're going to make a universe - homegrown in a lab. Will it work? In theory, it should. But as of yet, we don't have the answer. However, if it does work, it will grow and splice itself off from our universe. It will begin to evolve as an isolated universe without displacing our universe at all.
Fantastic, isn't it? Life is truly a grand wonder.
Could it be that after all these years, spiritualist teachings and the paranormal turns out to have a scientific explanation? Will fiction be proved as fact? When viewing spirits, could it be that we're peaking into the 4th dimension?
And could it be that we are on the brink of major scientific breakthroughs in the realm of quantum physics? Breakthroughs that may forever change "life as we know it?" And could it be that these breakthroughs come on the heels of December 21, 2012. . . . leading mankind to make an "evolutionary leap" that forever changes "life as we know it?"
Because the ancients that prophesied an impending change to "life as we know it" . . . may not have been prophesying a doomsday at all - but rather, an attained state of enlightenment by mankind. An evolutionary leap - higher consciousness for our species attained through finally understanding our universe.
String theory eventually unraveled for physicists and shortly thereafter, the "Super Gravity" theorists appeared. The only difference between String Theory and Super Gravity was the number of dimensions believed to be within the universe. String Theory supports 10 dimensions and Super Gravity supports 11 dimensions. String Theory theorizes of 9 spacial dimensions and one dimension of time. These are microscopic dimensions that we cannot perceive.
