What is a dimension?
A dimension is a direction that a probability wave can extend along.
It is defined by it’s angular relationship to other dimensions (or tangential relationship if any closed-loop is present) and its closedness.
One dimension is a line. If closed it is a loop, large or small. Two and you have a surface, if closed it is a sphere or a torus.
Hmm, so how does a dimension curve, unless there is another “direction” “above” it, into which it curves in order to loop? What should we call these extra dimensions? There is something to develop.
The wave-crest model of the (“The” – singular) electron is (in previous articles) explained as the amplitude of probability poking above a plane of significance which is the level at which we perceive the electron, and this gives rise to the perceived physical boundary in space that we define as the fuzzy location of this particle. You may remember this is how the particle/wave duality of the electron is resolved – if you read that in one of my earlier articles. The electron is fuzzy because the probability of it (actually its “edge”) being there varies with time (time is another necessary dimension for our perception/ experience/ viability but let’s not go there for now), but perhaps also fuzzy because the level at which significance/perception intersects the wave, truncating off a neat little package of electron, just maybe goes up and down.
We can “remove” some of these “dimensions” from our working memory scratchpad – the ones that don’t have to be “real” “plains” can just be trigger values – but for the sake of elegance and simplicity if might be better to stick with them in our scratchpad, even if it makes mentally juggling the interfaces between so many dimensions difficult. Just keep hold of the idea that these are quite possibly all simply notional directions in which probability waves can extend. This accords best with the understanding that everything is simply a thought spoken by God and held there by His existence.
Quantum Spin Liquids – yet another state of matter, long predicted, have finally been found. See this article <– click
How do the effects of quantum spin liquidity upon the electron fit in with a probability wave theory of matter?
Waves can add up. You get constructive and destructive interference with waves. There is no reason a probability wave should be any different. If the presences (plural) of the (single) electron are crests of the probability wave “poking” into the levels of perception we call reality (let’s simplify and say dimensional planes), there is no reason to suppose that each wave is not the sum of a number of different more fundamental waves – the summary wave is the electron, it’s component waves are the quarks (or other more fundamental building blocks).
If you reduce one of the component waves you get a less “prominent” electron crest. If you change the wavelength of one or more component waves, you get a more spread out, less sharply defined electron (or the noticeable effects of the the electron).
Now re-read the linked article where it says – Normally, magnetic fields produce “distinct, sharp lines”, but powders containing quantum spin liquid instead produced “broad humps”.
The (summary) probability waves of the electron(“s”) are smeared out because some of the component (“quark level”) waves have longer wavelengths. Instead of pointy crested waves that make nice sharp lines, you get flatter stretched out humps.
God is love.
1 John 4:8
God is everywhere.
God holds the universe together – every atom, electron, fabric of time and space, dimension, law of physics. By Him all things consist.
The love which is God is the primary force which holds everything in existence.
This is literal truth.
God loves the world. God so loved the world that He gave His only Son.
God loves not just the people in the world but the whole created universe, the Earth Moon Stars Animals Trees etc. He loves it all.
His love keeps it together.
Adam chose to eat the fruit that would lead to death rather than part from Eve. Love was stronger than death.
God knew this would happen.
Abraham loved God so much he was willing to sacrifice his son to God but love was stronger than death and so he did not have to.
God in return loved the world so much that He gave his only Son Jesus on the cross.
But love is stronger than death, and death could not hold Jesus.
Yesterday I saw a beautiful sight in McDonalds.
There was a young couple, about 18 years old. He looked a rough tough working class guy a bit of a thug maybe even. She was no classical beauty, but cute in an ugly-cute kinda way. They were fawning over each other, looking gooeyly into each others eyes and hugging inseparably as they waited for their burgers.
In the other line were the parents of one of them, also hugging and kissing inseperably.
All normal heterosexual good love, the way God made us.
They may not have been saved Christians – who knows. They may not be married – who knows. It was nevertheless refreshing to see that normal attraction has not been supplanted everwhere by the perverse abnormal versions that the New World Order is promoting so heavily.
To be a normal heterosexual Christian is becoming increasingly rebellious.
Try and not sell a wedding cake promoting homosexuality if you are a Christian cake shop in British Northern Ireland and you will see.
Tell your moslem friend about Jesus if you work for the British NHS (National Health Service) and see if you would keep your job.
Ever was it so, to be a Christian was to be a rebel.
Real Christians throughout history have been an underground persecuted minority, from the secret arrangements to meet described in the Bible onwards, forced to meet in secret, use secret symbols like the fish graffiti and the hidden cross in the trident symbol, or use the crossed fingers fish tail sign to recognise each other.
Christians have been killed for their love of God throughout history to the present day.
To truly follow Jesus and to live a Christian normal life and to proclaim it and spread the word is rebellion against the fallen world and against the evil that wants to run this world and to draw people away from God to jealous Satan’s death trap.
I have always had a rebel heart, and it led me a long long way from where God wanted me to be. However when I was in Spain, spotting the graffitis of the Christian rebellion, ichthuses and the combined venus and mars symbols that proclaim heterosexuality, was part of my being called to join Jesus’s rebellion against the wrong living that has taken hold in the world, and instead of following the world, for me to follow Him.
When God finally wraps up this world it will be dramatic and terrible in a way beyond imagination: wars, earthquakes, tyranny, persecution and eventually the very fabric of space will roll up like a scroll, crushing into nothing like the other dimensions that physics admits are curled up tiny already.
But this will not be done by God out of hatred. Despite it seeming horrible, ending this world will be an act of love, like euthanizing a loved animal rather than see it suffer, and He has the upgrade ready for us to live in, a new Heaven and a new Earth, where there is no death.
Love is stronger than death.
Join the rebellion, be on the winning side, fight with The Prince Of Peace.
There is an interesting article in The Daily Beast – “How to mathematically measure consciousness” – about the scientific endeavour to understand the neurological basis of consciousness. When I majored in psychology some years ago my motivation was to understand the root or origin of consciousness. I found enough answers to sate my curiousity and have moved on to other questions, but at that time there was little or no neurological address of the mysteries of consciousness. So, I have followed the growth of the still nascent science of neuropsychology with great interest since those days.
It is not my intention to plagarise the excellently written Daily Beast article so I do recommend you read it. The part of the article that I want to comment on is the part that explains that in quantum physics the act of observation changes what you are looking at, and the article draws the parallel with neuropsychology where looking for the neurological correlates of consciousness may, because the subject has to report the experience as the measurements are made, result in the mechanics of enquiry (reporting) changing the phenomenon (consciousness) being studied.
Now this may just be a coincidental parallel, but I can suggest there are reasons why one should consider things otherwise:
Firstly in the quantum case the observations we know of that affect quantum outcomes are (necessarily) those that ultimately report back to humans. It seems there is an inescapable link between how reality works and how we perceive it, and the fact that we do perceive it.
Next let me now draw the spiritual parallel. By Him all things consist. God holds it together, God makes it exist. When (not if) He “lets go” everything will fall apart, space itself will roll up like a scroll – we all know about curvature of space eh? Nice clear scientifically accurate language in the Bible there.
We are, it is written, made in God’s image. He affects reality by causing it and holding it together in existence. As beings made in His image, is it any surprise that our observations of reality affect it? That looking at a quantum phenomenon changes it? Really that should be no surprise at all to any person with even a rudimentary understanding of the faboulous science book that is the Bible.
So, questions such as “Is consciousness a quantum phenomenon?” – which I know you are jumping up and down in your seats with raised hands desperate to ask – are somewhat on their heads. The right question is more like “Are a quantum phenomena a result of consciousness?”
We have a lot of circularity there, so clearly we are in a self-referential trap. Let’s find our way out. We often think about mind body spirit as if we are triune in nature (ho ho ho see some parallels there?). Okay, lets run with that. We need to look away from mind and body (the world and the consciousness) to the third element. Let’s see how it works with God and as we are made in His image maybe we will see how it works with us.
If in doubt, look to God – He created it all so He has the answers. More pointedly, not only is He “The Answer” in that very general country pastor homily kind of way (nothing wrong with that by the way), but He is the answer (the specifc one we are looking for) to our science question. God is a consciousness and He has a soul. As well as in Genesis hovering on waters, God’s soul gets a mention in Leviticus 26:11 – And I will set my tabernacle among you: and my soul shall not abhor you. This world and our minds are two sides of the same coin, they interact so intimately in a circular way you have to look outside that reality/mind circular loop for the cause of it’s existence. If you look to the soul to provide that answer you are reminded to look to that ultimate soul that we are made in the image of.
We are not a flesh image of a flesh God, our minds which arise created and sustained by God – the world of quantum phenomena and its atoms that comprise that flesh and emergent minds – are not mind images of God. That which truly comprises us is our soul. Our soul is that which God made in His image. We are soul images of God.
Our soul is that which powers and sustains our particle of mind/quantum interaction that we so easily mistake for our essence.
We are IN this world but we are not OF this world.
Things that get said more than once in the Bible are really really important so note this extract from John 17 (KJV) well:
13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
He is talking about YOU. You, the bit that is really you, not the body that if you lose an arm or a leg you are still you, not the mind you that dies every night and is resurrected every morning, but the soul you, the real you that powers the mind-body illusion of you that scientists are finding it hard to study. As God powers this world “illusion” that we are in (no the world is real because God makes it so but you get my drift), so those images of God that are our souls power the mix of our minds and the quantum phenomena that science is trying to grasp.
And here’s a thing: When you consider a child affected by Zika virus with ancephaly or anyone with mental or physical disability – and have the temerity to question why God made that child or to think about murdering a foetus by abortion that in world terms might be considered imperfect (and just who among us is perfect eh – cast the first stone!) – look beyond the mind and body to the soul and see the real value of that person and know God has a purpose for them that you cannot fathom, so show some love and respect to God’s creation of that brother or sister of the triune you and your triune creator.
You and they are more wonderful than you think, you are indeed more wonderful than your thinking, and more wonderful than you are capable of thinking. Fortunately you are not your thoughts, you are your soul. You are exactly as wonderful as God spoke you into being, and as His image, exactly as wonderful as Him.
Once you understand gravity in quantum terms – oh by the way the gravitational waves fit kinda nicely don’t they – then it’s not too hard to understand inertia in a similar fashion.
Stuff is in place A. That is it’s probability wave has the greatest amplitude – at place A. You want to move it to place B. The probability of it being at B is lower, because it isn’t there yet. So you are working against probability when you move it from A to B, you are having to change the probability at A to less and at B to more. That requires some kind of action, which generally means the expenditure of some kind of energy.
Gravity is stuff tending to move to where stuff already is because there is a higher probability of stuff, any stuff, being there already.
Inertia is stuff wanting to stay where it is because there is a higher probability of if being there than where it is not.
Space (a bunch of dimensions) can be curved by stuff. The stuff tends to be/stay/move-to where it already is, probabilistically speaking, and so does the space.
Accelerating stuff means you are drawing it away from where it probabilistically “wants” to be, so you are also dragging the space “away” from where it probabilistically “wants” to be. So it keeps popping back to where it was a bit as well as being where you are moving it to – it stretches. So does the time dimension. Acceleration stretches (dilates) time.
Einstein was pretty much right, and the quantum gravity and inertia theories I have explained here both support and explain phenomena that Einstein predicted and physicists have since detected – time dilation, curvature of space, and very topically this week, gravitational waves.
“Laws” of physics are really good things generally speaking, but remember, an awful lot of what appears to be a physical law is just the artefact of a high probability. The bible says (Luke 1:37) “For with God nothing shall be impossible” and God doesn’t even need to re-write the laws to make things happen, He just needs to arrange things so that the highly unlikely thing happens to happen by chance anyway. We call such things “miracles.” You are one of those. Miracles and the supernatural are not things that are outside physics, they are just things that are hard to explain using physics, but they are not impossible in terms of physics at all, because it’s all underpinned by probability.
And what you may ask underpins probability?
I’ll leave you these quotes, which if you think deeply about the stuff I’ve been writing about, I think you will see are apposite:
(so many times this passage is quoted by people, but look deeper into it, think about the physics, the probabilities, and what God can do with His knowledge. This passage is not ONLY in the bible just to cheer you up)
James 4:14 – Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
1 Corinthians 14:33 – For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
Colossians 1:17 – And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
Recap – you already know this –
A particle is only probably somewhere, albeit tied down by it’s Planck length, it is mostly somewhere, but it is a probability wave – particle-like only insomuch as as the crest of that wave pokes up noticeably. All the other places it also is, but rather less so, well that’s the quantum foam.
So how does this speak to gravity?
A large mass is a place where there’s lots of stuff. That is to say a place where lots of stuff more probably is than is not. So, why does other stuff want to be there? – Why does gravity pull? Why is mass attractive?
Well think about it. A large mass is a place where there is a high probability of stuff being.
Now here’s another little bit of stuff.
And there’s that place where there is a high probability of stuff being (a mass).
A high probability of stuff, ANY stuff, being there. Our little other bit of stuff for instance, is more likely to be there, because there is already a likelihood of stuff (ANY stuff) being there (THAT’s what a big mass that exhibits gravitational attraction, IS).
So the the probability wave of our little attracted particle is more likely to crest closer to where all the other stuff is, so it does just that, it moves toward the mass, it hones in toward where the probability of it being is higher. With each Planck length tick of the time dimension the temporo-spatial coordinates of its probably wave crest gets closer to where the other wave crests are, and synergistically they wind-up the probability and it accelerates, jumping proportionally closer with each Plank tick.
The reason why accelleration is a squaring of velocity, is connected with the right-angle relationship between the dimensions things can move in. Dimensions like time and space are of course just potential directions that things can probabilistically pop up in. Our particle at any point on the time line (T-axis) is a set distance from the centre of mass (z-axis), and so has (conventionally) only to count the density (probability) of its fellow in its x and y axes of the “shell” around the centre of mass where it currently is. The progress as it steps along z toward the centre as t passes contracts the available surface area of the x-y shell according to the inverse square law, so acceleration toward the centre (increased probability of being at the centre) increases as a square. G is always measured in metres per second per second. Acceleration per second per second – i.e. squared – is just an artefact of the way the area of a nest of spherical shells around a point contracts, like bringing the spots on the shrinking balloon closer together, thus making the likelihood of spots being near each other, higher.
The quantum theory of gravity is just a self-fulfilling prophecy. The more stuff is likely to be somewhere (and demonstrably this probability is so if the stuff is there), the more all stuff is likely to be there, so it in that direction the crest of its probability wave moves, accelerating as it goes along.
As always, the way things are arranged is elegantly simple.
You may ask where does a guy with not a huge amount of training in physics get such ideas. Well…
Romans 1:19-20 (KJV)
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Are there other dimensions? – Yes.
Are there parallel universes? – No, not as such.
Up-down, left-right, forwards-backwards, yesterday-tomorrow, and all the other directions you can’t so easily see or describe because (mostly) they are very very tiny are dimensions. These are real. All the ones you can’t so easily see or describe, they are the “other dimensions.”
Every thing, every atomic particle is a probability wave. That electron is mostly probably here but it is a bit probably there etc. Things are fuzzy, smeared out probabilistically. Oh, so all the things are a little bit everywhere. A universe is a pattern of where all the bits are. The universe we live in is the one where all the bits are most likely where they are now. All the other combinations of less likely positions are the “parallel” universes. They exist a little bit because they exist probabilistically rather less likely but nevertheless to some extent, alongside (parallel in time), but we don’t usually see them because we are seeing the most likely arrangement of all the bits.
Parallel universes, to the limited extent they exist, are not in other dimensions, they are in the same ones we are in, but they are separated by probability, not by time-spacial dimensions.
Up-down, left-right, forwards-backwards, yesterday-tomorrow – here are two lovely pieces of music you can dance tango to (or just chill out):
They should point you to some wonderfully curated music (not “tango” but you don’t have to play a “tango” to dance a tango, do you).
If you’re in London (the most hip rad kewl (chose epithet dependant on age and cultural background) city in the world, especially anywhere near Dalston or Haggerston, go to the Tango Serendipity website. Then get yourself along to Steve’s tangos and classes – up-down, left-right, forwards-backwards, yesterday-tomorrow… enjoy, learn, relax, change and grow in many ways. You can be part of the coolest thing in the coolest place anywhere in the universe right now. Take it while it’s there don’t grieve when its gone…. you know how that goes.
God Bless y’all 🙂
Acts 17:28King James Version (KJV)
28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
Psalm 27:5King James Version (KJV)
5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
We are spiritual beings. Often said, but seldom understood. There is a widespread recognition by atheists, and even some non-atheists that we have some ineffable quality that is more than the sum of, greater than the synergy of, and not fully explicable by the deconstruction of the synthesis of, our consciousness and memory. That essence of us, each as individuals, is something outside the embodiment of self-awareness that psychology has tried to address, and more recently has tried to explain as something that can be atomised by salami slicing to death the emergent nature of consciousness back into sub-thoughts, sub-processes and self-referential internal communication. Not to say these internal dialogues and assemblages of thought do not provide the internal mirror that bounces our thoughts back and forth like the mirrors in a laser before consciousness emerges like a coherent beam, but we instinctively “know” there is more to us than that.
Who are better placed than the owners of consciousnesses with the intimate lifelong experience of being self-aware to possess the insight to realise, however dimly, that there is more to a living human being than just a dead computer looking in a mirror as it pulls itself up by its own bootstraps?
That is the recognition that we are spiritual beings – we each have a soul. It is mighty fine to say consciousness is illusory, but if there is nothing other than the so-called illusion that can be experienced, and no comprehensible and satisfying explanation of why a set of processes results in a conscious alive embodied feeling existing experience, then it I will argue that the alleged mirage that they would say is my experience of living has more reality than the intellectual desert that it graces. I would say I have empirical evidence of being it, which trumps such ephemeral theories.
So then, if the soul is not something that is explicable in the physical chemical processes model offered by neuropsychology, perhaps that is because the soul is not made of things that impinge chiefly in those mundane 4 dimensions (X, Y, Z and time) that we best perceive. Physicists would say there are more dimensions than those, and both I and the Bible (see Ephesians 3:18) agree with that. The soul is not of this “flatland” world. The thing that is really the unique living hub of each of “us” merely intersects and interacts with this world. We are truly, as they say, “in the world but not of it.” Our earthly bodies are, not what we are.
There is a gateway between these other dimensions and the ones we most easily perceive. The rolling of dimensions is referred to in the bible, physics calls it the curvature of space, the universe we are in being sort of meta-hypersphere. All that is fine, it explains quantum entanglement and lots of lovely stuff, but that’s not what I’m about today. Today’s thing is about translation. That geometric matrix of spatial coordinates manipulation that transposes like an architectural drawing presentation being redrafted from first angle into third angle.
Translating your soul so that it no longer intersects our mundane world is what going through the gateway is. The gateway is Jesus. In Him we live. Jesus is God. God is everywhere. He doesn’t need to move, to translate from intersecting to non-intersecting. Because He is there and here, He is the conduit for us to ride in and out of our set of dimensions to the others. He is the way. A way, like a highway, a road, a gate. The gate is narrow, He is the only way.
The bible is not unscientific mysticism, it is an account of truth. Truth that is very very hard to grasp even to our modern scientific minds that are just starting to see how complex and strange the universe really is, and hard to recognise because it was written in the language of people who as farmers and fishermen thousands of years ago did not have the words for physics and math and topology we have. Get past that and you can see that the supernatural is completely explicable and consistent with science. It is not magic or nonsense. Jesus said it simply and plainly. He is the way the truth and the life.
Hmm, the life. Don’t forget that bit eh? There are a lot of ways things can connect, behind the scenes. Like two points on a plain, that are really the ends of one line that curves below that plain.
When Satan comes and wants to cut you off from Jesus (oh yes, he is coming to get as many as he can), from the life of your actual soul, to bring you true death, remember, Jesus can whisk you away into Himself, BEFORE it even happened, because He is everywhere and every-when. He has told you this, in his book, how salvation works, and has given clear instructions how to get it.
Romans 10:13King James Version (KJV)
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
My thanks to Maasbach radio for playing some very nice music as I wrote this tonight, and as I finished writing it for very appropriately reminding me, it’s a two-way street. Once you live in Jesus, He lives in you. You can then be here and not get cut off by Satan. The intersections are permanent once they are done through Jesus. Eternal death is no longer a possibility.
John 10:9King James Version (KJV)
9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
There are many UFO / Aliens sites, books and videos that claim the US government or various secret agencies and organisations are reverse engineering alien technology taken from crashed alien spacecraft or bartered or donated to use by aliens from other planets or dimensions.
I think its time to give a somewhat different than usual Christian perspective on this.
Firstly do entities or creatures from other worlds in terms of aliens as they are conventionally thought of exist, and are UFO’s their vehicles? Secondly are we getting technology from them by reverse engineering or copying it? Finally if these two things are not true, then what really might be happening that makes a lot of people believe these things?
As Christians we know that the evil one is known as a prince of the air. We also know that he works by deception, doubt, lies, and undermining us in any way he can. We know there are such things as demons, which are entities. Most Christians also think that humanity is unique and that life may even be unique to our home Earth.
Given this fairly firm underpinning of knowledge and fairly reasonable empirical theory, how should we interpret the conventional notion that there are UFOs flying around with beings from other worlds that are intelligent like us but that spontaneously become alive and evolved in the same we did but separately from us and are more advanced than us.
The evil one would like us to believe in evolution rather than creation, so getting us to believe it has happened elsewhere and indeed may be commonplace serves his purpose. He would like us to believe we are nothing special, indeed if we believe we are an inferior species that undermines us a bit and makes us feel insecure so that suits his style just dandy. If in the process he makes us think we have manipulative secret organisations in our society that are using the technology from the aliens in sinister ways and keeping secrets from us, he sows discontent and doubt and even paranoia. He can use belief in aliens in a many ways to give false fears and false hopes.
He with his demons can easily create illusions and manifestations that give rise to false sightings, unpleasent and inexplicable encounters with beings, and numerous real physical effects, all agreeable with the underpinning reality of the universe that there are indeed many dimensions and there are indeed other beings in them. Its just that these other dimensions are places God created and the beings are the angels and demons, not a bunch of aliens.
You are using a computer device of some kind right now, because you are reading this on one, or someone used one connected to a printer to make the piece of paper you are reading this on. The chips inside that computer were developed from transistors, which were developed from the discovery that a wire in contact with a crystal of semiconductor like Germanium or Silicon could be used as an amplifier and a logic gate in the same way a thermionic valve could be. Bell labs in the 1960’s did not copy an idea from aliens when they invented the transistor. They developed the ideas that started with the cats whisker crystal radios from 1906 and thermionic valves from 1904. Humanity created by God deserves the credit for the transistor, not non-existent aliens.
UFO’s and aliens are a very clever deception being used by the evil one to promote godless ideas of evolution, undermine the idea we are in any way special, make us feel inferior, instil false fears, sow mistrust amongst us, sow confusion, divide opinion, create false hopes, and distract us from the truth, which is that God is real and Jesus is our Lord and saviour.
Oh sure, UFOs and aliens are real, in the same way the evil one is real, and they really have the stamp all over them of the one that is putting them out there for us to believe in.
The only reverse engineering is the psychological engineering the evil one is using these fake aliens to do in people’s heads, turning them away from Jesus.
Now go to tune into some nice inspiring Christian radio, and be happy that God made us intelligent in His image, able to create things like transistors that we can use to glorify him and dispel the evil one’s false ideas.
