The Real Nature Of The Universe: Multiply Yourself By Zero

Updated on June 30, 2009

Not only does mathematics fail to explain the details of these incredibly complex realities, but it also points to a fundamental fallacy in our own most basic understanding of the universe around us. It is a mainstay of all spatial concepts that we exist in three dimensions: length, width and depth, in addition to the dimension of time. It is always acknowledged by humanity that in order to pinpoint any event you must utilize all four of these dimensions. To use the three spatial dimensions without the time factor would give you a position without the knowledge of when it was there, and to miss a single spatial dimension would give you a coordinate which would stretch out to infinity along a single axis. None of these possibilities seem to fit the observations of the things around us.

So perhaps it is now fitting that we analyze the entire concept of the four dimensions themselves. What truly is a two-dimensional object? A plane is classically understood to exist in two spatial dimensions, but let us look more closely at this possibility. If something exists in only two dimensions, say length and width, it lacks the third: depth. We have defined something that is, say, a yard square yet it has a depth of zero. But if it has a measurement in any dimension that equals zero, then does that thing actually exist? We can take any conventional mathematical calculation and multiply it by zero and have the result become zero! In multiplying by a single zero we are annulling the entire calculation and deriving a result which is non-existent!

Can anything be included in the field of reality if it is missing any of the four vital and indivisible dimensional coordinates? We have already seen that if an object has three spatial coordinates but no time coordinate then that thing does not exist, since it is not there in time anywhere. It's like saying that I am so high, so wide, and so deep but I'm never ever here. So what is the point of giving my dimensions? I'm not here at any point in time, therefore I don't exist. Spatial dimensions in this case are completely irrelevant.

Similarly, if an object has a specific time fix, say right now, and is missing a single vital spatial coordinate, say depth, it also does not exist. It is just as impossible for something to exist without time as it is for it to exist without depth. Either way you have nothing: just an abstract consruct created by mathematicians only to allow certain equations to equate. It is nothing more than an artifice... a complex mathematical cheat.

All of this leads us to another question. Why must all equations equate? Where in nature is it graven in stone that equivalence must be universally applicable? Equivalence as an overriding concern has the effect of obviating dynamicism. And when we look around the universe we discover that dynamics are definitely the rule rather than the exception.
