Ooh, Battenberg*....now there's an idea. Guess what I'll be picking up from the supermarket after work today. Nom nom nom.

Ummm no sorry you are totally wrong, 'where do you think dust comes from' really ?? :lol:

Science/mathematics has POSTULATED the existence of other dimensions apart from our own 3, 4 if you count time as a dimension, yet they cannot be proven to exist.

Have little read of this...

And it's spelt Particle. Sorry greenstiles but you are talking out of your bum.


Edit: I do not doubt that other dimensions exist. Science has not proven that they do.

I am not convinced. Are the laws of physics something fundamental that humans have discovered or are they formulated from observations of what we see around us?

Let's take the so called 4th dimension of Time. Newtonian time is something fundamental to physics but Kant said it is subjective to people due to memory and I am in the latter camp.

you can read about it here: http://christianhubert.com/writings/Time.html

but my view is we percieve time because we have a memory. Let's say we remember nothing then everything we see is in the present and we have no idea that anything has changed. It is like looking at a roll of cine film. If we have a memory and it is run we see stufff changing so we can formulate equations involving time to exaplain the movement. If we have no memory then nothing moves and so no equations involving time.

The mathematics is there to prove that time travel is possible - if that were so, why are we not inundated with visitors from the future?

insects, bugs, and other small critters and germs have a sensory system but no real memory faculty.... so therefore time for them is imperceivable, yet they exist 3dimensionally in a 4dimensional universe


Time is nothing more than a representation of entropy and thermodynamics.... as matter passes from ordered state into dissorder.....

I am never wrong, i come from a dimension where we are never wrong and we spell particle in 5 ways depending on what dimention we are visiting :| nim nim......also dimension :wink:

For a moment, I feared that line of suggestion would be a prelude to the "if a tree falls in the woods, and there's nobody to hear it..." thing.

Then... time passed.
