The concept that is viewed as truth is sometimes missing the ingredient of reason.
A fifth dimension is one of light; it must be visible during the negative cycle of light particles.
There is nothing that says what is true “now” will remain “true” indefinitely although all truths are relative to prior knowledge, no one can truthfully say that all prior knowledge have been rightfully interpreted. So because of that we can say what is “true” today can only be validated by our current interpretation of prior knowledge. Had it been possible that all of our prior knowledge were rightfully interpreted than we would not have had to worry about errors that are not solvable?
Descartes famous quote is “I think therefore I am” Moore on the other hand suggested that what is wrong with philosophical skepticism is that it is inevitably trapped in a self - refuting paradox. He argued that the fact that some philosophers have called into question the existence of the earth proved that the existence of the earth cannot be denied.
If it can be proven that all prior knowledge have been rightfully interpreted than Descartes would have been right about his observation as it relate to the existence of the earth. But the fact that it's not possible to prove that all prior knowledge have been rightfully interpreted leaves plenty room for errors.
This planet we call earth has many dimensions and so far human intelligence have only been able to access three. And from that aspect without knowing the “truth” about all the eleven dimensions how can we be sure without any reasonable doubt that Descartes proposition is without fault.
As long as a reason to doubt an answer exist, the answer cannot yet be considered the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Thus, if scientists are able to prove that there are eleven dimensions than Descartes proposition may only be valid because we do not yet understand everything to know about the eleven dimensions that scientist prove to have discovered.
To accept a complete understanding of earth is to know everything that there is to know about the planet earth which would have included all the eleven dimensions we do not yet know anything about. It is only when we comprehend fully what goes on in those dimensions can we accept Descartes proposition as the whole truth nothing but the truth. By accepting Descartes proposition, this proves that we accept the answer to a question as the whole truth even when that question itself is base on pretenses that has no reflection of the truth.
Scientist argued that there could be as much as eleven dimensions among which may be six we know nothing about. And we have the nerve to say the fact that we question the existence of the earth proved that it cannot be denied. Well, this was said long before our times, and I'm sure if Descartes had live to witness the technologies we've developed for experimental purposes he would not have said what he said, because even if he did it would not have been an absolute truth.
In addition, it is a fact that many scientist have agreed that there are more than three dimensions. And it is because of that fact that Tom examples are as follow; “the fourth dimension that is within the grasp of common people is the dimension of time. For us to see something, it must have height, width, and depth, and it must exist presently".
"The trees that once stood where your house now stands have three of the dimensions, but lack the dimension of time. Likewise, the trees that will one day stand where your house now stands also lack the dimension of time".
"A fifth dimension is one of light; it must be visible during the negative cycle of light particles. If something has height, width, and depth, but those measurements are less than zero, we will not be able to see it. Eyes filter reality, as do all our senses."
I think we should have every reason to question the existence of the earth. For the simple fact that there is too much that we do not yet know about it. And the reason for not knowing these things is related to our misinterpretation of prior knowledge.
Some of our mathematical theories may not be that accurate our periodic table may be missing some important elements. E= mc2 may have fault in it because of the misinterpretation of prior knowledge. After all, if we were all that smart why it is then we haven't been able to figure out how the pyramid was built?
