The Mystery of the Seven Dimensions

Can science and religion be combined into one philosophy? In the future, I think so, as long as one recognizes that not only are there different degrees of order, but different degrees of knowing.  The material universe is a lower level order of a more spiritual level, which in turn is a lower level order of yet a higher level. Each lower level of order is symbolic of another stage at a higher level. The material world is a symbolic theatrical representation of higher levels of reality. One of the most promising theories I have uncovered is one proposed by Arthur M. Young in his work The Reflexive Universe:

Arthur M. Young was the inventor of the Bell Helicopter. He also was a cosmologist and philosopher, and founded the "Institute for the Study of Consciousness" in Berkeley CA.

I showed a friend of mine the book and he happened to have met him and some of his students in Berkeley. Unfortunately, since the book was published, the theory has somewhat languished, as it is based on our scientific knowledge from the 1970s, and some of the scientific classifications he refers to have been corrected.  So, I decided to start updating the theory, correcting some errors and refining the theory a bit. Amazingly, scientific discoveries made since he published the theory still fit within the predictions made by the theory.  Since the theory covers everything, I am calling it "The Universal Order of Design," and blog entries which cover this I have labelled as "Universal Order" (see labels in the left column of this blog.)  For those who want a review, here are the links to the former blog posts:
The Seven States of Creation 
The Universal Order of Design - part 2 
The Seven Dimensions of Space Time 
The Universal Order of Design - the Symbolism of the Atomic World 
The Universal Order of Design - String theory 
The Universal Order of Design - the Tetrahedron 
The Universal Order of Design - the Symmetry of Matter 
The Universal Order of Plants 
The Spiritual Symbolism of Plants 
The Universal Order of Design - Animals 
The Seven Dimensions of Physics 
The Spiritual Symbolism of the Four Forces 
The Divine God Man
The theory is that all states of existence are in seven degrees of order, as follows:

However, Arthur M. Young made an error in his theory. There should be seven degrees of order, as follows:
1. (some unknown lower level dimensions of Physics, including space-time)
2. Subatomic Particles
3. Atoms
4. Molecules
5. Plants
6. Animals and Man
7. (unknown higher stage of existence)
The error Arthur M. Young made is that he assigned light to the first degree of order, when in fact light - the photon particle - is in fact another subatomic particle. The science is very clear on that point. Which means there is a whole new area of order below the subatomic level that science is on the verge of exploring. The other gap in the theory is the seventh order of existence, which is a higher level order beyond the human form: this is the spiritual world, the realm of the afterlife. For this gap in the theory, it is covered in the spiritual works of Emanuel Swedenborg who had visions of the afterlife. There are several stages of spiritual development that humans must go through, and these are described by the seven days of creation in the book of Genesis. The seven days are seven "states", and this is described in detail in Swedenborg's work Heavenly Arcana (aka Arcana Coelestia). These spiritual states, as it turns out, closely correspond to the different degrees of order of the material world.


As this universal order of design is universal, and covers all existence, if there is a gap in our scientific (or spiritual) knowledge of how things really are, the theory shows it. One will see a blank spot. And that is very apparent when we reach the lower level of order below the subatomic level: we start to deal with the different dimensions of reality, in which matter exists. Young missed it entirely, since he put light in this level. The theory predicts there should be seven dimensions. I discussed some theories in The Seven Dimensions of Physics, as well as geometric representations of higher dimensions, but it is incomplete.  In The Seven Dimensions of Space Time, some physicists have stated that the universe favors 3 and 7 dimensions. Which is interesting, because according to this theory of universal design, there should be seven - the reason for that is, at every order of existence, there are seven smaller sub orders. The pattern is consistent.

I recently went back to the blog The Seven Dimensions of Physics and was looking for some better graphical representations, and I stumbled upon a very odd find: a lecture entitled The Seven Dimensions of Creation:

What in the world is this? This comes from a group called the "Aetherius Society" founded by a Dr. George King, who was a Yoga master. I looked at the description, and it said this:
In 1957 Dr. King met an advanced intelligence from another world on board an interplanetary spacecraft. This extraterrestrial Master revealed to him that there are at least seven dimensions of creation, those being length, breadth, height, time, motion, mind and Divine Will.
Ok, now this is getting strange. The Aetherius Society is a UFO religion that exists to this day, and while they have some apparent insights, they promote some unusual teachings concerning the identity of Jesus which is contrary to Christianity and what was revealed to Emanuel Swedenborg. So my first reaction is this belongs in the trash bin. And so it should end there, except in my other research, I encountered this strange presentation by Peter Levenda entitled The Origin of the Secret Space Program.  It is a very odd lecture, and it concerns UFOs, extraterrestrials, the origin of the U.S. Space Program, the CIA, the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and.... Arthur M. Young. WHAT?  That just threw me a curve ball. How did Arthur M. Young get in there, the author of The Reflexive Universe? As it turns out, Young was a researcher into the paranormal, and was involved in this channeling session in which they tried to contact a group of extraterrestrials - in the exact same manner that Dr. George King claimed to contact them. And if indeed they were extraterrestrials, they seem to have a strange way of looking at things. Some ideas have been borrowed from Theosophy, as well as Hinduism and Bhuddism.

So what is the story here? In 1952, a secretive government group, composed of individuals that seem to always pop up in the research concerning the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, met in a farmhouse to conduct a channeling session to contact extraterrestrials. For this, I will just sum it up by quoting another blog that stumbled across this, The Séance That Changed America:

"The man at the centre of this séance was Andrija Puharich, US Army Captain and author of a government paper on the weaponisation of ESP. And this is the guy that is moving in the same murky circles as bishops Jack Martin and Fred CrismanThe farmhouse in question was owned by his bizarro Round Table Foundation which appears to have received funding from the CIA. Puharich first gathered together these nine people on a warm night in early June. But the most interesting results were actually achieved in New Year’s Eve of the same year.

And it’s a line-up that positively defines “could not make this up”. The group included:
  • Arthur Young, who invented the Bell helicopter. However at the end of WWII he abandoned military aviation to concentrate full-time on the paranormal.
  • Arthur’s wife, Ruth… previously of the Forbes dynasty. Her son, Michael, would get a job at Bell Aerospace through her and Arthur’s influence. (Michael’s wife got Lee Harvey Oswald his job at the book depository. She was learning Russian from Oswald’s wife who was living with her in Irving, Texas. Oh, and her father worked for a CIA front called the Agency for International Development. Lee Harvey Oswald left the coffee company in New Orleans, saying to his co-workers he was “going to work for NASA.” After the assassination, two other coffee company employees get jobs at NASA. Just saying.)
  • Mary Bancroft; of the Bancroft dynasty who would much later sell the Dow Jones and Wall Street Journal to Murdoch. She also happened to be the mistress of the then-CIA chief. (The one JFK fired after the Bay Of Pigs after saying he was also going to break up the CIA… who conveniently went on to investigate JFK’s death. Just saying.)
  • Marcella Du Pont of the Du Pont family.
  • Alice Bouverie who was born into the Astor dynasty. (Her father died on the Titanic and her first husband was a Czarist prince who would work for the OSS during WWII.)"
So who is Andrija Puharich? He was a medical doctor and a researcher into parapyschology. And if this is not all strange enough, he wrote a book entitled: The Sacred Mushroom: Key to the Door of Eternity:

And what is that book about? Andrija Puharich began to study this sculptor who on occasion would fall into a trance and began speaking and writing in ancient Egyptian, and identified himself as a priest who lived 4600 years ago.  And one of the discoveries he made as a result of that was a new species of a psychedelic mushroom.  In the Bible the apostle Paul calls it "speaking in tongues," otherwise known as xenoglossy. Another story for another day.

So what happens during the session? The article continues:

These gods, who were nine in number as well, were part of one great, creator god known as Atum. The other gods consisted of Shu, Tefnut, Geb, Nut, Osiris, Isis, Seth, Nephthys, and sometimes Horus.
Communication with these entities was handled by the medium, an Indian gentleman referred to as Dr. D.G. Vinod, who slipped into a trance state at 12:15 AM and began speaking as ‘the Nine’ by 12:30. Afterwards Dr. Vinod would claim to have no memory of the conversation that preceded between the Ennead Nine and their human counterparts. 
During the course of the seance the mystical Nine informed the human nine that they would be in charge of bringing about a mystical renaissance on Earth. From there the Nine ventured into quasi-scientific, philosophical constructs that eventually led to the acknowledgement that they, the Grand Ennead, were in fact extraterrestrial beings living in an immense spaceship hovering invisibly over the planet and that the assembled congregation had been selected to promote their agenda on Earth.
So is this, in reality, where Arthur M. Young got the theory? He would always mention in his lectures concerning the theory that he and his wife explored a variety of paranormal phenomenon, from which he tried to formulate the theory.  Did the theory originate from Arthur M. Young, or from somewhere else?  When Young decribes the theory, he says he was always trying to "fill in the gaps" with our current scientific knowledge. And he would always be surprised about how it worked so well to explain phenomenon that science was observing.  And five years later, a Dr. George King independently claims to have been revealed that there were seven dimensions of creation - and this teaching came after he saw a screen or hologram that looked "three dimensional." They corrected him, and said that there were in fact seven dimensions. This is completely separate from Arthur M. Young, for Young did not account for the seven dimensions in his theory.  And the date of the session which contacted these supposed extraterrestrial beings is interesting - it is the year 1952.  As it turns out, the NSA lost a lawsuit based on a freedom of information act, and in 2004 published an extraterrestrial message that they received. As discussed in The Origin of the NSA Extraterrestrial Radio Signal, the message can not only be dated internally to 1952 but contains scientific information ahead of its time. One now wonders: was it in fact a radio signal? Or a message received in a similar manner to the channeling session of this group in 1952? The NSA document does not explain.


For the moment, let us leave the strange possible origin of the theory of Arthur Young behind us. And as I said before, this is the kind of stuff that I normally put into the trash bin - the method of communication is unreliable, and in most cases the kind of information is false and belongs in the realm of pseudo-science. The source views Jesus as an extraterrestrial. The theory that Arthur M. Young worked on is elegant, it works, and it explains many things we currently know in our science. My current issue is I need to fill in a missing gap in the first level of order, I need to know what the seven dimensions of physics are. So, let us take a quick dive and see if we can recover anything that may actually be useful. Here is a lecture from the Aetherius Society concerning the seven dimensions of creation, which is actually a bit entertaining at times:

The lecturer first starts out with some general outlines of what science currently knows about other dimensions, but only mentions the String Theory or M-Theory which proposes 10 or 11 dimensions. And where did Dr. George King get his information concerning the seven dimensions? From extraterrestrials who claimed to be from planets in our solar system. After Dr. George King commented that a hologram looked three-dimensional, one of them from Mars explained that there were seven dimensions, and said,
"Therefore, even basic matter exists within this framework. Will, Mind, Motion, Time, Length, Breadth and Height. The Divine Will imposes those conditions upon mind which bring its potential into manifestation as directed motion in a time-frame of length, breadth and height." (27:38)
At 31:04 we have these statements:
"Manifestation could not exist without a power which is capable of creating the tension necessary to hold the particles of matter in a certain state. And this power is mind."

"Mind is a pattern of potential, a pattern which to all intents is static until a pressure is applied from outside."
At 33:05 we have this statement, which is related to Young's diagram of a fall downward into matter, and an upward movement back towards God:
"Each of our Sparks exists in a sea of mind. This mind is the power that creates the tension that holds matter together. Through the medium of mind, Divine Will gives each Spark motion, or direction back to God using matter."
At 37:11, we have this other quote from a message received in 1955, from an extraterrestrial supposedly from Venus named "Aetherius":
"A worm is a worm because it will not accept the fact that it is something greater. It is not possible to have matter, whether animate or inanimate, without having mind. The mind creates tension which holds the atoms of matter together. Whether those atoms constitute the brain of a saint, the brain of Einstein, or the cellular structure of a worm. The journey from worm into man is a shorter journey, long as it is, than from man consciousness to God consciousness."
At 39:04, the speaker presents another way of viewing the seven dimensions of creation:
1. Divine Will
2. Divine Mind
3. Motion
4. Vibration in matter - which is compared to the vibrating strings in String theory.
With the following commentary, which again is very close to Young's explanations concerning bringing potential into manifestation:
"In the beginning there was only potential - then this potential was brought into and bound within manifestation."
"The seven dimensions are a means of bringing potential into manifestation."
At 42:27 we have these statements:
"LOVE is an all permeating energy which is above mind. It is the third degree manifestation of the Initial Creative Force." -The Second Freedom - Feb. 19, 1961, Mars Sector 6
"There is really but One Energy in the system. This Energy has many octaves of manifestation." -- Nov. 23 1957, A Lord of Saturn
In String theory, all matter and energy can be described as vibrating strings. The reference to an octave is interesting - for in the universal order of design, based on Young's theory, manifestation goes through seven degrees, and in the eighth degree (an octave) - one jumps to the next degree of order. In the presentation, the following commentary is given on the three creative forces:
1. The first creative force was the potential.
2. The second force was bringing that potential into manifestation in the seven dimensions.
3. Love is the third degree.
At this point, I am going to interrupt and correct the presentation. The above three creative forces are in the wrong order. We should have it in this order, and I will explain why later:
1. Love, or intent, comes first.
2. Mind, or potential, comes second, and is the cause.
3. Manifestation is the effect, which appears in our dimensional world.

So, the above is a lot to digest and absorb. And to be honest, the speaker giving the presentation does not seem to understand it all. But lets take a step back and assess the theory.  Science confirms that there are three dimensions of space, and a fourth dimension of time.  But three new dimensions appear: will, thought and motion. And this does not seem right. First, anyone who knows anything about science will tell you that motion is not a dimension, it is a force applied to matter. Also, no scientist in their right mind would ever propose will and thought as a dimension. Will and thought, in our current understanding, are not physical entities but belong to the realm of spirit. But then again, lets ask the question: how does our will and thought interact within our three dimensions? Or how does the spiritual world interact with the material world? It is common to speak of the spiritual world as a higher dimension, and the material world as a lower dimension. This theory is strange: it states will and thought ARE a dimension, literally. Folded within our regular three dimensions and time. There it is, all around us. We literally live in someone's will and thought that is all pervasive. This is something unexpected.

If we think about it, we are a soul existing in a material body. But where is the soul? No one can find it. Swedenborg studied anatomical dissections of the human body and failed to find it. Scientists still have not found it. So, according to current scientific theory, if a woman approaches a scientist and tells him, "I love you. What does that mean to you?" The scientist will probably say love is a chemical reaction influencing the electrical impulses of your brain. Which is probably why we have a lack of scientists in the U.S.

According to the theory of the Seven Dimensions of Creation, physicists are no longer on top. Spiritual knowledge is the highest knowledge to know. And spirituality applied becomes sociology and psychology....and now we are stuck in an endless loop. Without spirituality, there is no morality. Without morality, society falls apart, and people fall into their own punishment according to the sin they have chosen.

So, when we get down to the dimensional level of physics, is it true that the 6th and 7th dimensions are thought and will?  Probably not.  I would modify the statement a bit: the 6th dimension is the dimension where thought exists, and the 7th dimension is the dimension where the will exists. These dimensions receive influx from the Divine, for only the Divine has life in itself. Humans, and all living forms, are recipients of life.  This was made clear to Emanuel Swedenborg in his visions, which he spells out in a small work entitled Intercourse between the Soul and Body. Thus, I would modify the theory to state that the higher dimensions is where the will and thought of the soul reside, which directs the physical body in our 3 dimensional world. Our life is influx from the Divine, and this comes from a level of existence that precedes the first degree of order of the dimensions of space time.

If we think about it, for thought to reside in a dimension higher than the dimensions of space-time begins to make sense. If this is true, then telepathy is possible. Clairvoyance - where one can see something happening in a far off distance somewhere else - now becomes explained. Our thoughts, by nature, are not bound by space and time. We can think about the past or jump to the future. If will and thought reside in folded dimensions within space and time, we now know how the soul interacts with the body and yet we cannot see it. Astral projection, out of the body experiences...all of it, has the potential to be explained by science. All the evidence is there for these paranormal phenomenon. But since it does not "fit in" with our current theories it is ignored.

So how do the Seven Dimensions of Creation relate to the theory of The Reflexive Universe by Arthur M. Young? It actually fits right in. So much so, I suspect that both ideas have the same source. It always puzzled me how the inventor of the Bell Helicopter came up with his theory. Recall the diagram that Young used to explain his theory:

The way Young presents it, it is a downward descent of the soul into matter, and than an upward ascent of the soul back to God.  I do not agree with most of the labels Young used, but the first one - which he calls "Purpose" - is correct. Purpose is the same as intent, and one's intent is the same as love. Intentional love is the highest form of living. Now compare this diagram with the seven dimensions of creation:
1. The will, or love, or intent = END.
2. The mind, or thought, or potential = CAUSE.
3. Motion, or usefulness, work = EFFECT.
4. Time.
5. Length
6. Breadth
7. Height
Note how the dimensions get reversed from the normal way we think of them.  It is also a downward descent of the soul into matter, where we get stuck in the world of space-time. The purpose of matter is to manifest the potential thoughts of the soul, according to one's intent. And that is why I corrected the philosophy of the Aetherius society a bit. The way I see it, they have received information and they do not know how to interpret it. Swedenborg was shown that the realms of the spiritual world exist beyond space and time (long before Einstein's theories) - this is the seventh order of creation. Another topic for another day. So what is the purpose of creation? To manifest love.

And note that I reordered the "three forces" of the Aetherius society, correcting it a bit. Those teaching are related to what Swedenborg called end, cause and effect, or another way, intent, thought and outcome. One's potential thought, based on one's intent, must manifest in what one does.
"To speak in the language of philosophy — these three are as end, cause, and effect. It is known that there can never be any effect unless there be a cause, and never any cause unless there be an end. Effect, cause, and end, are as distinct as exterior, interior, and inmost. Properly speaking, the sensual man, that is, he who thinks from sensual things, is the external man, and the spiritual and celestial man is the internal man; but the rational man is mediate between the two, and by this, or by what is rational, there is communication of the internal man with the external." (Heavenly Arcana, n. 978.3)
Thus true faith must be conjoined with good works:
"Only to know what is of faith, is of a man's memory, without the concurrence of his reason. To acknowledge what is of faith is a rational consent induced by certain causes and for the sake of certain ends. But to have faith is of conscience, that is, of the Lord operating through conscience. This may be abundantly evident from those who are in the other life. Those who only know are many of them in hell." (Heavenly Arcana, n. 896)
The philosophy of the Aetherius society has good insights, but without Divine guidance, or spiritual revelation, most will be at a loss to discern which portions of it are true or false.  And it is unfortunate that the Aetherius society does not have a correct knowledge of Jesus Christ.  For notice, there is a descent of the will into thought, thought into motion, and thence into the material world. And what does it mean when the Divine Will and Divine Thought are the 7th and 6th dimensions? It means God is omnipresent, and omniscient. He is present in the smallest things. And what is Divine Thought? This is known as the Word:
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.  ...He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God." (John 1:1-5, 10-13)
And what is described? How God descended from his Divine Will, into his Divine Thought (the Word or Logos), and became incarnate into material matter. And the Aetherius society is blind to it. How did the Divine Thought or Word create all things? It is everywhere. It is in a folded dimension that is present in everything that exists. Our objective in life is to manfest the Divine Love, thus we pray: Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.


So we gave a spiritual assessment of the theory.  Now for a scientific assessment.  Science is well grounded in the four dimensions of space-time. The theory of the Seven Dimensions of Creation states that the fifth dimension is motion. And this, when one first looks at it, is blatantly incorrect. For according to Newtonian physics, motion is nothing more than a change of distance (space) over a change in time. In Newtonian physics, motion is completely explained in terms of the four dimensions. Moreover, motion is initiated by force, and this is explained by the subatomic world.

But not so fast. When we get down to the quantum level, throw out Newtonian physics. Also throw out gravity, as that messes things up at the quantum level. So how do we describe motion at the quantum level? Every particle has what is known as "spin." But this is not spin as we know a spinning ball.  Each particle has discrete spin: 1/2 spin, full spin, double spin. Nothing in between, it is quanticized.  Its as if we have a spinning ball that blips in and out and only shows up at certain points in its spin. We have reached the level of the universe's own graph paper: a bunch of squares where things can only manifest at the intersections. Ask a physicist why this is so, the answer is unknown. It is the way things are. So when it blips in and out, where does it go? The fifth dimension perhaps? In that case, nothing really moves in the four dimensions, it all happens in the fifth. One physicist proposes something like that to explain quantum entanglement, where particles effect each other at a distance in Discovery of the Fifth Dimension. But this is too general and not specific enough. There are various theories on Five-dimensional space, and one interesting theory is The Kaluza-Klein theory: with five dimensions, gravity can become united with the electromagnetic force. It was proposed back in 1921 but it has not been verified.

While I was exploring the fifth dimension I found this interesting article by Brian Koberlein - The 5th Dimension and Dark Energy:

In a recent paper in the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics, an interesting theory was proposed to explain dark energy as a quantum effect. The idea is based on an experiment known as the Casimir effect. ...What the Casimir effect demonstrates is that quantum fluctuations in a vacuum can produce a force. So what if dark energy was due to vacuum energy fluctuations? For that to be the case, there would have to be a constrained geometry. But such a constrained geometry is exactly what is proposed in (wait for it) string theory! String theory (or M-theory as it is now known) proposes that there are actually ten spatial dimensions instead of just the three that we know of. These higher dimensions differ from our usual ones in that they are compact, meaning they are folded around themselves. If you think of a straw as a two-dimensional sheet with one “regular” dimension (the length of the straw) and one “compact” dimension (the circumference of the straw), then you have the basic idea.

Now if these compact higher dimensions exist, then quantum fluctuations would be constrained in those dimensions, and that might produce a cosmic Casimir force that looks like dark energy. The catch is that our observations of gravity place a limit on the size of these compact dimensions. This is because gravity is an inverse-square force, meaning that the force of attraction between masses varies by one over their distance squared. If there are higher dimensions, then the inverse-square relation for gravity would break down at the size of those dimensions. Gravity experiments have shown no such effect, so that means that any higher dimensions (if they exist) can be no larger than 85 microns, which is about the width of a human hair.
This is where things get interesting, because if you calculate the effect of these quantum fluctuations in such compact dimensions you find that having 8 compact dimensions (as string theory proposes) doesn’t work. It only works if you allow for just one compact dimension. But if you constrain the universe to just one extra and compact dimension, and you also constrain the fluctuations to exist within the limits of the observable universe, then this model makes two predictions. The first is that dark energy would be constant throughout the universe. It would, in fact, look like a cosmological constant. The second is that this extra compact dimension would have a size of about 35 microns, which means that around 35 microns we should see gravity deviate from the inverse square relation.
An interesting theory - it counteracts String theory of 10 or 11 dimensions, and only works if you have one extra compact dimension: the fifth dimension. Then the phenomenon of "Dark Energy" becomes explained. And what does dark energy do? It is responsible for the rapid expansion and acceleration of the universe. There you have it: motion effected in the fifth dimension. I found another article on this here: Dark Energy From Fifth Dimensional Brans-Dicke Theory. In the article Physicists Probe the Fifth Dimension, it is proposed that when two particles collide and produce a graviton, the graviton escapes into the fifth dimension:

One physicist exploring how gravitons can "leak away" into a fifth dimensional brane is Lisa Randal of Harvard University: she along with Raman Sundrum are trying to find a way to verify the theory.

Other dimensions explain many phenomenon currently observed in physics: see the presentation from Fermilab: Dark Matter from Hidden Dimensions.  And what will happen when scientists finally verify the existence of these higher dimensions?  Well maybe we will figure out how to travel faster than light - for if movement takes place in the fifth dimension, perhaps one can go outside the limits of the first four dimensions.


If anyone is surprised about a possible "paranormal" origin for Arthur M. Young's theory of Reflexive Universe, no one is more surprised than myself.  For a long time I have been stuck trying to fill in the gap of the seven dimensions of physics which should lie within the first order of existence within the framework of the universal order of design. And where do I find a possible solution? Not from a scientist, but from a UFO contactee of all places - completely independent from Young. And it provides a philosophical foundation for the rest of the theory, which Arthur M. Young struggled with. And what about the seventh order of existence? Those are the spiritual realms, and for that, we need to depend on the revelations given to Emanuel Swedenborg. Does it all fit together? Yes it does, as I showed a little bit here. A grand theory of everything. That is a cause of celebration for me, as this has been a bit of exploration, and this was a big missing piece of the puzzle. And for that I will end with the theme song The Dream from the movie Total Recall, concerning a man who forgets his identity and has to rediscover himself:


I did some further research into this, and found a paper entitled: Intrinsic Spin and the Kaluza-Klein Fifth Dimension.  In 1921 Kaluza-Klein proposed that there was a compactified fifth dimension, which would unite gravity and the electro-weak force.  As it turns out, this paper mathematically shows that the intrinsic half-spin of leptons it actually explained by such a small curled up fifth-dimension.  We only see the spin in certain states as we live in a three dimensional world. More research needs to be done for the other particles.  How come is this theory just sitting there?
All of this from an odd piece of information, from a possible extraterrestrial source, that stated that the fifth dimension was essentially motion.  This is highly counter-intuitive, but may be correct.  Unfortunately as the Aetherius Society relied on channeling, some of this information has been mixed in with some false religious teachings. So if this is correct, then it is quite possible that the sixth dimension is thought, and the seventh dimension is will. The seventh dimension is the possible domain of the soul.  These conclusions are even more counter-intuitive. 
In our current science we are taught that this world is a mechanical universe, and it has no room for such higher spiritual matters as love or thought.  But in Swedenborg's visions, love and thought are not just abstract concepts, or merely derived from the outer senses and chemical reactions of the body.  They truly exist as substance, but exist as a higher level substance that does not interact with light.  
It is an important point, as that would mean the highest dimensions (7th through 5th) represent END, CAUSE, EFFECT - where effect is the 5th dimension of motion.  No longer an abstract concept, everything originates from will - the Divine will, flowing into all creation.


We have matter (fermions) that always have half-spin, force particles have full spin, and the gravitron has double spin.  In other words, these particles are spinning, but we can only observe them in certain states of their spin. So, like electron shells around an atom, lets create different levels that represent the different dimensions, and show how particles "move" through them:
We exist in 4D Space time, and we can only observe things at this level, which I show with the black line.  Quantum mechanics has shown that at the lowest level things are strangely discrete. But discrete levels are indications of other dimensions. So matter particles always have half spin, showing that matter is moving between three dimensional space and the 5th dimension - which was the subject matter of Intrinsic Spin and the Kaluza-Klein Fifth Dimension. Force particles half full spin, so they interact between our 4D space-time world and the 6th dimension, the subject of Yang-Mills theory. These force particles also intersect with the 2nd Dimension - and forces act like vectors which are two dimensional. And then we have the elusive graviton, which Randall and Sundrum propose is weak because it "leaks" from our 4D dimension to another dimension. But in the above diagram, it shows that its not just the graviton that leaks. Everything that moves leaks out of our 4D dimension like a sieve. In order to move through 4D space-time, you need to "leak" out. And note that the graviton encompasses all of the dimensions of space-time - according to General Relativity, gravity is the result of the warping of space-time.
The weird thing this simple (probably oversimplified) geometric diagram shows is that gravity does not leak to the 5th dimension. It leaks out to the 8th dimension.  But in the theory I was expecting seven dimensions - but nothing is interacting between our 4D world and the 7th dimension. Is there any theory from physicist concerning 8 dimensions?  Yes, in physical theories concerning Supersymmetry, it requires a Superspace of eight dimensions. While mathematically it solves more problems, there are no observations that back it up.  But check out the following two videos concerning the E8 theory from Garrett Lisi - where geometrically, an eight dimensional universe has the possibility to describe everything we know about subatomic particles in a beautiful geometric pattern. It is a work in progress, for an assessment see An Exceptionally Simple Theory of Everything:
To show how beautiful it is, see this video:
