What does the inside of a tesseract look like? Pascal’s Triangle can tell us.
Higher dimensional spheres, or hyperspheres, are counter-intuitive and almost impossible to visualize. Mathematician Kelsey Houston-Edwards explains higher dimensional spheres and how recent revelations in sphere packing have exposed truths about 8 and 24 dimensions that we don’t even understand in 4 dimensions.
The energy associated with psychic activity is not conserved and does not dissipate. I can hear people’s heads exploding as they read those sentences. Typically when I say things like that, a lot people reject the idea; however, they tend to reject the idea because it seems too counter-intuitive, does not fit their expectations, does not fit their biases, does not fit their paradigm, and other things of that nature. This statement is accurate when you look at the relationship psi has to entropy, disorder, and information along with its higher-dimensional structure. Entropy and Disorder There are many different ways Read More
Wormholes, hypercubes, Flatland, and more – Join Neil deGrasse Tyson as he explores time and higher dimensions with comic co-host Harrison Greenbaum and mathematician John Allen Paulos. To start off, Neil explains the concept of a fourth spatial coordinate. Then, our trio compares our knowledge of a possible 4th dimension to the Flatlander’s knowledge of the 3rd dimension in Edwin Abbott’s book Flatland. Ponder the idea that we’re prisoners of our three-dimensions, echoing the shortcomings of Abbott’s two-dimensional beings. You’ll also investigate the film Interstellar and its use of wormholes and the 5th dimension. Physicist James Kakalios, returning guest and Read More
