Treading into the past or future is possible. What science can’t, you can…read on to know how!
In theoretical/pure mathematics, dimensions can be more than we feel and see around us – length, breadth and height. For simple people like me, the interpretation is that there’s so much un-utilised space that needs to be acquired!
This to my wondering mind (though mathematically not be correct, as I have just picked the idea of another dimension for fun – so consider it for fun’s sake alone, don’t place it at science’s altar and massacre my humble humour) means lots of space around me where I can keep more trash that usually surrounds my three-dimensional existence.
I may prefer to throw away all unused inventory into fourth dimension and further. So that when guests arrive at my place it’s neat. Also, at times when I would not want to be searched by some acquaintances, I may just walk away into another dimension.
The extra dimension – well if not the worm holes as in space – would also help me save time – as I may just step into office in a few seconds, perhaps – rather than facing the usual traffic. How about walking to and fro between two locations instantly – that’s going to be super-management! Say you are attending a meeting in the board room but there’s some parcel-delivery at your locked gate back home. You excuse yourself for a minute, walk-through that extra dimension to your home receive the parcel and come back to the discussion table in a minute or lesser.
Again, don’t go by the mathematical definition of dimensions, purely. Here we are merely considering possibility of such short-cuts in a world of story-telling.
Just imagine, if we really had the option of ‘escaping’ away from this ‘reality’ – it may be Alice’s wonderland or H G Wells’s walk through “The door in the wall…” then what kind of life we would be living! It’s living multiple lives simultaneously. Precisely, coming to the point, it’s the ever-wondered time-travel that myths and science have always considered a possibility – through beliefs or through equations.
My lack of depth in pure maths never stops me from discovering concepts. I have a powerful tool in literature that surpasses calculus. It’s called imagination. And I have already experienced a fourth dimension. It takes me away from this 3-D reality I live in. It’s called ‘thinking’. You just need to get deep into your mind – dream, imagine…and believe you me, you can travel any place, any time, any direction in time. You won’t need a time machine to do so. I don’t need one anyway! Happy imagination!
