Hyperspace

Homepage | What we Know | Feed Back | Getting Involved

Hyperspace is the space beyond three dimensions. Our three dimensions are planes as they are at right angles to each other. The dimensions above the third can be expressed as hyperspace. There are ten dimensions in total. The first four have names while the others do not. The four dimensions are length, width, height and time.

Figure 1 shows the four dimensions of a cube. First we have its length then its width. After that we have its height. These are the three planes we can see or imagine. The fourth dimension of the cube is time. The cube in figure 11 shows the hyperspace model of a cube. It contains the three planes of space and the fourth plane of hyperspace. Every object has this fourth plane, as an object without time cannot exist.

The fifth and sixth dimensions are planes that are curled up in our universe. The first four dimensions are extended while the others are curled up. To explain where the first six dimensions are let us use a simple example. Imagine an ant standing on a branch. This ant can move up and down this branch so it has one dimension. The ant can also move from side to side so it now has two dimensions. The ant also discovers it can fall and climb up the branch again so it now knows three dimensions. This is where the ant’s freedom of movement stops. He is a prisoner of the higher dimensions. The ant cannot travel through time but he does age so he has a fourth dimensional plane. The fifth and six dimensions are the different ways the fourth dimensional plane can be travelled.

Figure 2 shows the ant's six dimensional hyperspace universe. He can move freely in the first three dimensions but is a prisoner of the rest.

Note: The ant fell off the branch after the interview. J
