Extra Dimensions and OBEs

Here I go again, ticking off the people who would like this project to be about hard science only! What's with me? Why do I work so hard to present myself as a serious explorer of new ideas, and then delve into subjects like "out-of-body experiences" (OBEs) which make it so easy for people of a certain mindset to dismiss me as a crackpot?

Sure, I've had the occasional vivid dream where it seemed as if I was flying through the air, or I was some place else in the world right "now", but I've never thought of those as being "out-of-body" experiences. Still, the above recently published YouTube vlog, which accompanies a blog entry from earlier this year called Entangled Awareness and OBEs, finds ways to blend these ideas of out-of-body experiences and lucid dreaming into the big pictures we've been exploring with this project.

Meanwhile, November has been a good month for new revelations about extra dimensions:

  • Here's a Wired Magazine article about a new scientific experiment intended to prove once and for all that our reality is not continuous, and that it's a shadow of a 5D hologram.
  • Here's a Reuters article suggesting that extra dimensions could be proven to exist by the LHC in early 2011.
  • This article about a Cornell scientific research project suggests that precognition is real, and therefore the past and future are, as I've said in my book and this blog, "just geometry".
  • This article from physorg.com suggests that new gravity detection methods will prove the existence of extra dimensions.
  • Here's a UK Telegraph article about the CERN team's recent capture of atoms of anti-matter, a breakthrough predicted by Dan Brown's Angels and Demons.
Finally, here's a video about a book that might interest any geometry fanatics on your shopping list this year. Thanks to my friend Pete Chema for pointing out Naked Geometry, an artsy book of human figures posed in various shapes from geometry, fractals, M.C. Escher-style tilings, and even hypercubes, with accompanying text to explain the interesting facts and folklore connected to these shapes.

Galileo was once a crackpot.
