THE 11th DIMENSION
How about the eleventh dimension?
Science and religion are poised to come face to face as physicists begin to realize that this planet we call earth and the universe it resides in, are a part of an infinite number of universes all residing in the eleventh dimension.
In the early years of the 20th century, the atom long believed to be the smallest building block of matter was proven to consist of even smaller components called protons, neutrons and electrons, which are known as subatomic particles.
Beginning in the 1960s, other subatomic particles were discovered. In the 1980s, it was discovered that protons and neutrons ( hadrons) are themselves made up of smaller particles called quarks.
In the 1980s, a new mathematical model of theoretical physics called string theory emerged. It showed how all the particles, and all of the forms of energy in the universe, could be constructed by hypothetical one-dimensional “strings,” infinitely small building-blocks that have only the dimension of length, but not height or width. Further, string theory suggested that the universe is made up of multiple dimensions.
As we are familiar with height, width, and length as three dimensional space, and time gives a total of four observable dimensions. However, string theories initially supported the possibility of ten dimensions the remaining 6 of which we can’t detect directly. This was later increased to 11 dimensions based on various interpretations of the ten dimensional theory that led to five partial theories as described below. Super-gravity theory also played a significant part in establishing the existence of the 11th dimension.
