If you’re interested in spiritual philosophies and have read a bit about it from one or more sources, sooner or later you are bound to come across people speaking about dimensions and how we are supposed to ascend from the third to the fourth to the fifth and so one. But what are these dimensions. I recently watched a video, see link below, about the holographic universe theory. The theory basically says that our 3D universe is a projection of sorts of an image on a 2D surface. But it’s an image that when looked on from a 3D perspective wouldn’t mean much to us. And it made me think about what dimensions really are. And what I realized is that dimensions may simply be a way of organizing information.
The best way of explaining this is by starting at zero dimensions. At this level all information is seen at one. It’s can also be seen as a state of nothing, because in this state there are now distinctions between states. There is only the one state of infinite potential. And in order for there to be something there needs to be a difference. One thing is something different than another thing. So at zero dimension we are aware of only nothingness and everything is seen as one. But when we become aware of the difference between everything and nothing. A contrast appears, and we start to see all the points of possibility that exist between everything and nothing.
By doing so we move from a zero dimensional view to a one dimensional view, where all the possibilities we are aware of are organized linearly. What this means is that we have one point of view, universal consciousness, that only sees the state of everything and nothing in zero dimension. And then we have multiple other points of view that can move in a “line” between all and nothing, only seeing one point at the time. This allows universal consciousness to see both the whole and points of possibility that exist between all and nothing. But it still just one point or one piece of information that can be seen at the same time. Universal consciousness experience all of the other views as well as its own view. But experiencing multiple views seeing only one piece of information, is not the same as actually seeing several pieces of information at the same time. And that is where the second dimension comes in.
What happens is that we start to see each individual point of information as information in two places at the same time. We essentially imagine new lines going out from each individual point. And each individual points are projected out at different lengths on this imaginary line, so that now rather than seeing the points as singular points of information on a line, we see them as multiple points spread out in a 2D space. In 2D space an individual viewpoint can see multiple pieces of information at the same time by turning around on the 2D plane. And because one piece of information can only exist at a certain distance from the original 1D line, there is a lot of empty space in all the places where there is no information, which also means that buy looking at points at an angel it’s possible to see many points from a single viewpoint in 2D.
Changing our point of view from the second to the third dimension, works pretty much in the same way. We imagine that there are lines extending out from all the points and all the empty points between them, in 2D space. And every point, containing information, in 2D space is the projected to some location along this imaginary line. By creating a viewpoint in this space, we are able to see even more information at the same time. So essentially dimensions works as a way of seeing more and more information at the same time and in different ways in order to experience different point of views. And buy projecting information out along imaginary lines from the third dimension, it’s possible to create jet another point of view in fourth dimensional space.
One aspect of all this though is that each time we move up a dimension we get more and more empty space, meaning that the reality we experience become less and less dense. This is why there is so much empty space in our universe, seen from a 3D perspective. And seen from a 4D perspective, it would seem even more empty. This is why consciousness viewpoints in higher dimensions might have to change from a less materialistic way of life to a more idea based one, because they wouldn’t be able to interact with points of information in the same way we do.
The Big Bang
This theory can also be used to explain the Big Bang and the constant expansion of the universe. Universal conciseness from its main point of view sees everything as one or nothing. By looking at the contrast between these to it can create a point between the two and it can go on to create even more new points between the first new points and all and nothing. This is a constantly ongoing process that can go on endlessly as the same time as we start to experience these points in higher dimension. As more points are created the first dimension become longer, and as a result the second, third and all other dimensions above also become bigger. So the universe starts off from the single point of all or nothing and expands out from there.
I believe it’s also likely that multiple universes can exist. It’s possible for universal consciousness to make a new point between all and nothing. That is different than the first point that was created between all and nothing in our universe. And the points of information that is created in this line is different and leads to a different kind of universe than the one we live in. This can be done an endless amount of times, which would mean that an endless amount of different universes could exist. Some could be very similar or almost identical to ours, while others could be completely different.

What we touch. What we smell. What we feel. They’re all part of our reality. But what if life as we know it reflects only one side of the full story? Some of...
