In the previous blog post “To Travel Through Time I Think We Need To Exit Our Own 3D Universe And Enter 4D Universe” I suggested that we could escape our three-dimensional world to a higher dimensional world in order for us to do time travel. The question is how are we going to do it? Easy to say than actually do it. For obvious reasons, we can easily imagine up the problem, find an imaginary solution according to the power of deduction, but sometimes it would be impossible for us to put the power of deduction into practice. In this case, it’s currently impossible for us humans to escape our three-dimensional universe. Simply put, we don’t have the tech to do so.
In order for us to have the tech to escape our 3D-universe, we need an exact, practical know-how method with precise steps to produce a tech in which we could use to escape our 3D-universe. Obviously, we don’t have such knowledge. Nonetheless, I don’t even have to convince you that we can travel to the moon nowadays because we obviously could escape our homeworld which is earth. We’ve been sending satellites to circling earth for scientific data and whatnot, and so I don’t see why we couldn’t be even more ambitious in the regards to exploring the outer space. One step beyond the final frontier would be time travel.
Time travel is a science fiction that we probably won’t be able to put into practice, if ever, in a foreseeable future as it’s the stuff that is too way out there — too crazy to put into practice for us humans in our current evolution. We couldn’t even yet achieve a technology which could allow us to travel between galaxies. In my opinion, unless we achieve the ability to jump between galaxies to shorten our trip in space, we probably won’t ever have the time, the tech know-how, nor the will to even think about achieving time travel.
Nonetheless, none of the barriers I’d mentioned would stop our imagination from running wild in regards to time travel. Movies, books, and whatnot have been exploring the fictional science of time travel for many years already. I still think we need someone, a little crazier than normal, to actually explore the math and whatever about time travel.
Personally, I like to chime in a bit on how should we approach in finding a method to allow us to escape 3D-world so we could enter a higher dimension such as the 4D-universe so we could at least have some hope in achieving time travel. So let me ask you to imagine something that is so weird OK?
Imagine a transparent, plastic bag which holds some water inside, but the bag is riddled with small holes. Instead of escaping from the bag, the water is comfortably swirling inside the bag normally when one shakes the bag up. Puzzled? A bag with thousands of holes, yet water won’t be spilled. Not even a single drop water would be spilled through this bag. Still puzzling?
What kind of a monster bag is this? You probably want to have one right now, right? Well, this bag won’t exist yet unless my imagination becomes a reality. As of now, the sun is still rising in the east and settling in the west, and so no, the reality isn’t yet capable of turning my imagination into something real just yet.
Nonetheless, let’s push forward with our imaginative hole riddled bag that is being filled with unspillable water. The idea is that the holes are inexplicable small to the point that no water molecule could spill through. Thus water could not be spilled from this leaky bag.
Since the water could not escape the bag, and so the water is just comfortably swirling inside the bag as normal. Imagine our 3D-universe is like this bag. It got holes that could allow us to escape to 2D, 4D, 5D-universe and so forth, but we simply can’t get through these holes to escape our 3D-universe. We simply just don’t have the tech or it’s just impossible for us humans to do so without some sorts of futuristic science or pure magic or godly power.
The idea isn’t too weird though if we correlate this to quantum mechanics. If my shady knowledge of quantum mechanics isn’t too off course, then I think using quantum mechanics we can somewhat point ourselves to clues that could allow us to glimpse at a higher dimensional world.
In the quantum world, things don’t behave normally as how we would expect in our own large, physical world. Basically, in the quantum world, things seem to be inexplicably appeared and disappeared into places that we could not track or measure. Is this still true with our current tech? I’m not sure if we can actually yet track things in the quantum world yet, but if we can this would be awesome. If we haven’t yet discovered how to do this, then I guess let me just use quantum mechanics to correlate to what is relevant in this blog post — to satisfy my ego.
This is just a pure speculation and got nothing to even come close to fact. I speculate that in quantum world there are holes that are so small, inexplicable small, that could allow things in the quantum world to slip in and out of the current dimensional world that we’re living in which is the 3D-universe. Of course, this is outrageous. I have not read anything which suggests this could be the case. This is just a pure speculation on my part.
Let’s just assume that in our 3D universe, in the quantum mechanics scale of things, there are inexplicable small holes that could allow things to slip out of 3D spatial space. If this is true, then at least this could allow us to imagine that one day there will be a technology which could teleport us through such a hole and allow us to escape our 3D-universe. On the other side, it could be 2D, 4D, 5D, and you know whatnot dimensional space that we could enter as we exit our very own 3D spatial fabric.
