I’d like to dedicate this page to questions that anyone out there might have regarding the axioms, tenants, conclusions, or insights of quantum space theory. Please send me your questions and I will do my best to respond via video. My hope is that this forum will be a useful resource for those that have unanswered questions about quantum space theory.
Question 1: From Fred Goode
I’m interested in better understanding the 11 dimensions of the QST.
I understand that a dimension is an axis along which something can move without requiring any movement in another axis or dimension.
x, y, and z are obvious examples of (3) dimensions. I would say time is a 4th as you can move through time without moving in x, y, or z. I see time as being a dimension because there is direction. Past – present – future.
I also understand the tiny size of the planck. It’s really REALLY small. You describe in Conversations One that this is the smallest we can divide space into. Like the AU (gold) atom, if you divide it again, it’s no longer AU. But for a planck length, I don’t get this.
Is there no such thing as a 1/2 of a planck? I look at the planck as a scale like a ruler. A ruler is 12 ” long, and has 12 single inch segments on it, with each inch being separated into some fraction of an inch. It is up to the manufacturer as to what fractional amount he wants to display. 1″, 1/2″, 1/4″, 1/8″, and very commonly, 1/16″ or even 1/64th inch. Why do we never see rulers with 1/128th inch increments? Because it’s too small to “eye ball”. That does not mean the dimensions smaller than 1/64″ don’t exist. We measure them with other tools. Just not with a ruler. How is the Planck scale different from what I describe?
Ok, question part 2. If the planck is a scale and quanta exists within this scale, you seem to be saying that because it’s sub-planck size, it can no longer adhere to the x, y, z dimensions to pinpoint it’s physical location. I think the problem for me is that I don’t yet get how distance (1 planck length) cannot be further divided. I understand this with the AU atom, but it’s not apples and apples. At least I don’t yet see it.
The other stuff falls into place for me fine as long as I accept this geometry as fact. I see what a black hole is, how time slows down approaching the black hole, why red shift occurs, what dark matter is, why quantum tunneling occurs, why the chicken crossed the road, and everything else. I just need help with describing this to other people in the area of “you cannot divide a planck’s length into a 1/2 planck”. WHY NOT??!!??!!
