Physicists Outline 10 Different Dimensions and How You’d Experience Them

Does string theory excite you? Mathematically, it holds up. Aspects about it suggest not one but several different dimensions, ones we’re not generally privy to, though we may be interacting with some of them all the time, completely unaware. Were it true, what would these dimensions look like and how might they affect us? And what is a dimension anyway? Two dimensions is just a point. We may remember the coordinate plane from math class with the x and y-axes. Then there’s the third dimension, depth (the z-axis). Another way to look at it is latitude, longitude, and altitude, which...

We All Walk In The Way Of Hyperdimensional Physics

One must be severely close-minded to think we're in a world with only three dimensions. It It turns out our universe has a few more than three. We can touch length, width, and height. Even though time cannot be seen or felt, it can be measured. Physicists have found ‘hypothetical’ dimensions, which help make mathematical sense of the universe. These dimensions aren’t named yet {11, 26, or more(?)}. Extra dimensions are also known as "degrees of freedom". They appear to be "compactified", or too small to be experimentally detected. This gives rise to a hypothetical particle called a ‘tachyon’ (Star...
