The Multidimensional View

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Within the known universe there are answers to many of our questions, but our perceptions are only limited by our assumptions and capacity to grasp the possibilities. Science and indeed all of us can only consider and compare related to our stockpile of knowledge and apply the laws science has so far proven. The problem remains that answers to complex questions may well reside in another reality, another plane of existence unlimited by own narrow-minded abilities.

Assumption and arrogance are two traits that cloud or disarm the truth. We, by our nature, limit reality and therefore the discovery of further knowledge. Thinking that humanity is alone as intelligent beings, thinking that we are created in the image of God or that we are in any way superior to other life forms is presumptuous. Our intellect is one dimensional and limited. Our discoveries and knowledge of the universe are slow coming because of our superior attitude.

From the beginning of time humans have developed intellect and understood our environment through our senses. Most of our beliefs are based on what we can see and touch. We rely on our physical world for conformation and understanding; if you can’t see it, it doesn’t exist. Over the centuries we have devised religions in an attempt to place ourselves in the scheme of life, to give purpose and direction to our lives. The concept of the spirit and soul was the first departure from the physical. Since then we have barely touched on the idea of dimensions other than our own. The ideas are there, the possibilities, often expressed in popular culture: movies, books and the like. But in a scientific sense we are so far from discovering these possibilities, our technology so rudimentary in comparison.

Thought itself is misunderstood and a field only touched on by the fields of psychiatry and philosophy. Like all human endeavour the results of inquiry are based on our logic and placing the subjects in neat little boxes. This is a gross limitation and of course a consequence of our limited evolution. The possibility that thought itself has substance and a direct affect on human circumstance is only just being considered, and at the fringe of academia. These ideas are more often associated with cults or ‘New Age’ theories, even though they have roots in antiquity.

In this sense ‘Science’ is the disciplinary hand of knowledge, trying to keep answers contained within its set of rules and codes, without considering the vast possibilities of reality. Even reality itself is questionable, with assumptions the ruling paradigm. Evidence to support the power of mind into reality is plentiful. How many visionaries have proved that if something can be imagined, it can become real in a physical sense? Jules Vern, Leonardo DaVinci, Isaac Asimov and an endless stream of science fiction writers have proven this to be true.

The power of the mind is the key to understanding the connections our lives have on many different levels. Humanity has only touched on this area of exploration and many answers, I believe, are awaiting discovery in dimensions not considered. Life is a miracle of complexity that we have yet to unravel, and without an open and unbiased view, science cannot move forward faster than snails pace. The idea of multiple dimensions could open and explain so much of what humanity seeks. Truth has many layers and no doubt many surprises for we mere humans. Life is possibility in action.

      You got it exactly right Tony. We have put restrictions on ourselves and have limited the universe to suit our undeveloped minds. It is said that we only use one third of our brain. How can we possibly begin to understand the universe whilst being so inadequately equipped. Only when we have learned to use the full power of our minds, will we truly be able to understand the depth and diversity of the universe. All the answers are right in front of us, we just can't see them. Great hub, awesome and up, thanks.
