HempHead: The theory that time has more than one dimension is even more bizarre.

You just became my favorite person ever.  How did I not think of that first?

No, there is one greater.

One of the guys who works for me worked for the original TSR and knew Gygax very well.  True story.

Is it wrong that my heart actually aches with nostalgia upon viewing those pictures?

This theory is utterly ridiculous. There aren't even stable orbits in 4D, so to expect star lifecycles and black holes to be the same is just stupid, lasy thinking.

This so-called "science" is almost as ridiculous as catastrophic anthropogenic climate change "theory".

I'm thankful you're here to offer a poignant and insightful rebuttal to the theory in question. I almost thought there were some valid points and interesting implications within the paper, but once you told me it was stupid, lasy and utterly ridiculous I knew I was on the wrong track.

Would you mind linking to your published research articles so I can further understand your own correct and fully researched theory? Thanks a 106!

ZAZ: It's actually much less than 4D; closer to 22D/7, about the circumference of a turtle divided by its diameter.

One of the bizarre techniques in quantum field theory is working in fractional dimensions then taking the limit as dimensionality approaches 1+3. Some equations blow up when there are exactly 1+3 dimensions. They have a well defined limit as they approach that point.


You idiot, there is nothing weird about that. The sinc functions (sinx/x) blows up at zero (as you so pop-scienceily put it) but has a well-defined limit approaching zero and that is used as the value in practice. Nothing weird at all when dealing with real numbers.

Maybe you should learn a little more before you go around shouting about what is "weird" on discussion forums such as this.

Question for all you scienticians: If this theory is correct, is matter still entering our universe from the 4D universe? Or does the 4D universe no longer exist, the black hole having absorbed all of the matter from the 4D universe and then causing our Big Bang?

Gosling: So if I dive into a black hole, am I 2D when I come out?


yes, it is called spaghettification

So basically the singularity in a black hole tears a hole through space-time.  The resulting rip becomes the big bang singularity of a brand new universe with the material being sucked out of ours seeding the new one.

Infinite recursion, infinite rebirth.  I think this just became my favorite theory of all time.

The idea that black holes spawn new universes has been around for a while.  If you think about it black holes and the big bang are the only places you have singularities in nature so maybe they are the same thing seen from different view points.
