The hosting of awareness is something inherent in all things existent. This awareness of which I speak is the same awareness that you are using at this very moment. All awareness comes from and shares the same origin in the zero dimension. Awareness is the source of things, but awareness is not a thing. Neither is it nothing. It is what we might term the soul of the universe, not a material substance.

Awareness is invisible. It is not something that we can touch or measure, yet it is ever present even when we are not consciously aware of anything. Awareness is the observer that is awakened by reactions to objects from within and outside ourselves. These reactions to our inner and outer worlds create information that eventually organizes itself and becomes experience.

Awareness does not need the concept of time and space. It creates time and space when it awakens to stimulus from another. Awareness is all that is necessary for the building of a universe. Nature is the child of awareness.

I am aware of the existence of a universe around me. Other things that are not my being validly exist but I can never prove it unless the world outside me and my own conscious awareness are one and the same. If the universe outside me and my being are ultimately connected and the fundamental awareness that is present in both is one and the same, then both are logically substantiated. The per­ceptions I use to perceive my being are the same as those used to perceive the universe.

What we call the Now—this fleeting moment that seems to move through time and space—is the very embodiment of our human personal awareness. It is always present—a universal phenomenon that can be viewed from many points of reference.

Awareness is non-material. It is not a product of a nervous system any more than it is the product of the evolution of elemental interactions. That thing which makes you aware of yourself and the world around you is not unique to you personally, but the basic property that creates the geometry and form of all things existent. Awareness has evolved an unconscious network of differentiated components that build and project an actualized world into our locally personalized world and the universe about us. The business of physical sciences is showing how this happens in a physical manner.

When we examine the material world for evidence of its history, we discover things that are both previously unknown and surprising. These things exist independently of our perception, just as the world exists independently of our perception. Why is this so if we are all of the same elemental awareness?

Each of us has our own constantly changing version of that which we are aware. It is composed of what we have been taught and what we have learned both consciously and unconsciously.

Primal awareness is the precursor of consciousness. Interactions are observations and they create the world through interaction, which is the same as observation, materializing matter from a field of primal energy, forcing time into existence by slowing the speed of light.

In quantum physics, a virtual state is a very short-lived, unobservable quantum state. In many quantum processes a virtual state is an intermediate state, sometimes described as “imaginary” in a multi-step process that mediates otherwise forbidden transitions. Such is the state of the universe before the actualization of dimensional realities.


The first step in actualizing an outside world is the creation of dimensional awareness. The first dimension has no time and space. It is simply a point that exists everywhere and nowhere simultaneously, as there is no time nor space nor observer with which to measure and define it. It cannot react until it is duplicated and reacts to movement and touch,

The second dimension records the point in motion. Movement creates spacetime, which until that movement took place, never existed. A line is composed of many clones of that individual point. All points are the same point. The prototype line also exists everywhere and nowhere simultaneously.  Space is defined by the measurement of duration. The entanglements of electrons are possible because they exist in the second dimension, everywhere at once without time’s duration. They materialize when observed and remain in a physical timeline,

It is through the ‘observation’ of itself, perhaps by touch, that a point becomes a line. This second dimension is the birth of the finite. It creates a process of a beginning and an ending. It creates an observed, closed system.

The only way a point can be influenced by itself is to clone itself into many points, all of which are the same point, and then move in a curved line that comes back to its beginning location. This creates a closed, circular system or orbit. Only at this moment is there an inside and an outside. What is inside is virtual energy and empty, unused fields of possibility. What is outside is the undifferentiated awareness of the zero dimension.

With the third dimension, we have the birth of the unconscious mind from the formless, undifferentiated primal awareness. This awareness unconsciously observes the two-dimensional closed circle from above and adds the dimension of height to the width and length of the two-dimensional circle, creating what appears to be a sphere by the act of awareness observing a circle from above in three dimensions.

Light itself, the photon, is one-dimensional and has no experience of time and duration. Light gets to its destination as soon as it leaves. We are in the 4th dimension. This dimension gives duration and time to light and we perceive light as traveling for many light years to reach us, but the photon does not experience time and duration. This is relativity. By the same process, electrons, being in the primary dimensions, can be many places at once and are not fixed until they interact and are observed. This is quantum mechanics.

The fourth dimension emerges as the duration of time is observed and merges with space as duration—and spacetime is added to the primordial soup. As we live in the 3rd and 4th dimensions, our awareness seems to be locked into these dimensions, though more elementary existences—such as waves and particles— exist in the many dimensions.

In 1993, the physicist Gerard ‘t Hooft put forward the holographic principle, which explains that the information about an extra dimension is visible as a curvature in a spacetime with one fewer dimension. For example, holograms are three-dimensional pictures placed on a two-dimensional surface, which gives the image a curvature when the observer moves. Similarly, in general relativity, the fourth dimension is manifested in observable three dimensions as the curvature path of a moving infinitesimal (test) particle. Hooft has speculated that the fifth dimension is really the spacetime fabric.

If this is so, then we may live in the 5th dimension as well, but we cannot perceive it with our senses, as we cannot perceive any of the larger dimensions by virtue of our physical senses.

What Is Entanglement Anyway? Chris Fields


Entanglement or non-separability is the core idea of quantum theory. It is a simple idea: the universe is not a bunch of independent parts, but is rather one entity that evolves through time as one entity. That’s it. The problem is that this means there’s no such thing as causation. This is very hard to wrap your head around. Quantum theory is extraordinarily accurate, and our knowing quantum theory is why we have things like cell phones and computers. But what is quantum theory, really? Why is entanglement its primary prediction? This talk will explain what quantum theory is. It will show that quantum theory has nothing to do with tiny particles, wave-function collapse, or Schroedinger’s cat. Quantum theory is about how observers obtain information about the world. It is, in particular, about how observers who have memories and use language obtain information about the world. It is, in other words, about how you and I interact with perfectly ordinary things like tables and chairs and each other. You will leave this talk with a new understanding of quantum theory, and a new appreciation for entanglement. Chris Fields is an interdisciplinary information scientist interested in both the physics and the cognitive neuroscience underlying the human perception of objects as spatially and temporally bounded entities. His current research focuses on deriving quantum theory from classical information theory; he also works on cell-cell communication and cellular information processing, the role of the “unconscious mind” in creative problem solving, and early childhood development, particularly the etiology of autism-spectrum conditions. He and his wife, author and yoga teacher Alison Tinsley, recently published Meditation: If You’re Doing It, You’re Doing It Right, in which they explore the experience of meditation with meditators from many walks of life. Dr. Fields has also been a volunteer firefighter, a visual artist, and a travel writer. He currently divides his time between Sonoma, CA and Caunes Minervois, a village in southwestern France.

Dimensions: Building Blocks of the Universe

Einstein recognized four dimensions, length, width, height and space-time. Since our eyes only see three in three dimensions (they cannot see space and time) comprehending the additional dimensions is both difficult and theoretical. Modern scientific theories call for at least ten dimensions, possibly as many as twenty-six or even an infinite number of dimensions. Though there is little agreement among scientists as to the natures of the additional dimensions, they are confident that there are more than four. Ancient Vedic texts speak of sixty-four dimensions long before modern science and mathematics was envisioned.


In zero dimension there are no measurements, but the zero also contains the point or the dot. It is the zero  point. No numbers are needed to identify its position. The point is infinite in that it is present everywhere at once with no time, spacial measurements or observation needed. Zero dimension is thus infinite, as is the first dimension of the point.


The first dimension gives birth to the line. The line contains an infinite number of points. The line is symbolic of the future. The awareness inherent in the zero dimension creates a symbolic future, that forms a trajectory. Two dots are needed to define a line. Any other of the infinite dots on that line can be located on that line using one number. We can observe the distance to the second dot to the zero dot by using the distance between them as a unit of measurement. On a ruler, the first dots can be at 0 and the second dot is at some measurable length from the 0.

The second dimension is the plane. It contains an infinite number of straight lines. The second dimension represents the present or the now. We need two numbers to identify a point on a plane. Mathematicians call these the ‘x’ and the ‘y’ axis. The illustration represents four dots connected on a plane.


The third dimension is where energy observes itself and congeals into matter. This is the plane where thought and mind comes into play. To understand this, we need to realize that thought and mind are universal entities, not simply products of organic nervous systems. We need to understand that awareness and the unconscious mental processes are essential to the manifestation of actuality itself.

The third dimension is the plane where awareness observes the flatness of the first two dimensions and projects it into objects and events. In the third dimension, three numbers determine the distance of an object in space. These are usually called ‘x,’ ‘y’ and’ z’. The third dimension is observed from above the plane. The operating word here is ‘observed’. Without the unconscious awareness observing an object from above, there can be no third dimension and no object to observe.

3 dimension

The fourth dimension is space-time. This is the dimension that we live within. Four numbers are needed to place an object in space-time. Three of these numbers set the position in space, and one of the numbers give duration for setting the time. We live in a four dimensional world. The fourth dimension is the gateway to universal formation. Space-time is the unification of time and space as a four-dimensional continuum as in Minkowski space, the mathematical setting for special relativity.


The fifth dimension is where possibility begins. The fifth dimension begins the building of universal imagination. Images-in-action appear in this dimension, as unconscious awareness begins to imagine other possibilities and other possible events and different potential worlds.

A five-dimensional space is a space with five dimensions. If interpreted physically, that is one more than the usual three spatial dimensions and the fourth dimension of time used in relativitistic physics. It is an abstract which occurs frequently in mathematics, where it is a  legitimate construct. In physics and mathematics, a sequence of N numbers can be understood to represent a location in an N-dimensional space.  The geometry of the fifth dimension studies the invariant properties of such space-time, as we move within it, expressed in formal equations.



Six-dimensional space is any space that has six dimensions, that is, six degrees of freedom, and that needs six pieces of data, or coordinates, to specify a location in this space. There are an infinite number of  these, but those of most interest are simpler ones that model some aspect of the environment. Of particular interest is six-dimensional Euclidean space, in which 6-polytopes and the 5-sphere are constructed. Six-dimensional elliptical space and hyperbolic spaces are also studied, with constant positive and negative curvature.



Beyond the fifth dimension, dimensions are imperceptible to our senses. They are highly theoretical, mathematical in nature.  That is to say, equations can describe them but we cannot see them.

The existence of extra dimensions is explained using the Calabi-Yau manifold, in which all the intrinsic properties of elementary particles are hidden. If the extra dimensions are compacted, then the extra six dimensions must be in the form of a Calabi–Yau manifold (shown below). While imperceptible as far as our senses are concerned, they would have governed the formation of the universe from the very beginning. Hence why scientists believe that peering back through time, using telescopes to spot light from the early universe (i.e., billions of years ago), they might be able to see how the existence of these additional dimensions could have influenced the evolution of the cosmos.


Seven-dimensional space in mathematics, is a sequence of n real numbers can be understood as a location in ndimensional space. When n = 7, the set of all such locations is called 7-dimensional space. Often such a space is studied as a vector space, without any notion of distance. Seven-dimensional Euclidean space is seven-dimensional space equipped with a Euclidean metric, which is defined by the dot product.

More generally, the term may refer to a seven-dimensional vector space over any field, such as a seven-dimensional complex vector space, which has 14 real dimensions. It may also refer to a seven-dimensional manifold such as a 7-sphere, or a variety of other geometric constructions.

Seven-dimensional spaces have a number of special properties, many of them related to the octonions. An especially distinctive property is that a cross product can be defined only in three or seven dimensions. This is related to Hurwitz’s theorem, which prohibits the existence of algebraic structures like the quaternions and octonions in dimensions other than 2, 4, and 8. The first exotic spheres ever discovered were seven-dimensional.


Another theory about the seventh dimension is that it grants access to the possible planes that start with different initial conditions and other points in space-time than our own. A point in the seventh dimension consists of all the possible worlds that start with the different initial conditions from our own space-time and leads to all the possible endings to which such an initial condition can possibly go. In the fifth and sixth dimensions, the initial conditions were the same as our own space-time and subsequent actions and events were different. In the seventh dimension everything is different from the very beginning of time.


Eight dimensional space, in mathematics, is a sequence of n real numbers can be understood as a location in ndimensional space. When n = 8,  the set of all such locations is called 8-dimensional space.

Often such spaces are studied as vector spaces, without any notion of distance. Eight-dimensional Euclidean space is eight-dimensional space equipped with a Euclidean metric, which is defined by the dot product.

Generally the term may refer to an eight-dimensional vector space over any field, such as an eight-dimensional complex vector space, which has 16 real dimensions. It may also refer to an eight-dimensional manifold such as an 8-sphere, or a variety of other geometric constructions. See:

The ninth dimension contains all the possible universes and histories whether or not they shared the same starting point in space-time. The ninth dimension includes all the possible laws of physics and initial conditions.

The tenth dimension is the point in which everything possible and imaginable is contained. It contains the history and records of all that has ever existed.

Infinity precipitates all things. Nothing  becomes real, though nothing is real. Once experience begins there is no stopping it. Once movement defines space and contains enough duration to be felt, an entire universe is born.
