  22.                   SUPRADIMENSIONALITY
  23.                  ---------------------
  25. The Quest for Unknown ENNEAD:
  26. Supradimensionality itself cannot be experienced directly; our
  27. senses are not equipped for it. We are used to aligning our
  28. consciousness with the three space dimensions, and these proceed
  29. along the dimension of time. Whereas we can move freely in space, we
  30. experience the dimension of time as a continuum that goes inevitably
  31. in one direction - from past to future, with no return. People often
  32. lay all their hopes and theories on some new, fourth or fifth, or
  33. whatever, dimension, when they are confronted with supernatural
  34. phenomena and ask themselves where it all came from. At the very
  35. least science fiction novels tend to overstress supradimensions; as
  36. a source of UFOs, for example, or of inexhaustible energy sources
  37. and similar things. In this article I would like to try out a little
  38. mind experiment with you to see if we might get a feeling for what
  39. it could be like if a gate opens to other dimensions. Let`s take a
  40. look:
  42. In answering the question about the meaning of the word "dimension",
  43. we should leave out all overburdened explanations, be it SciFi or
  44. traditional mathematics. Mathematics is a perfect symbolic
  45. language(!) for the relationships of numbers and quantities, as it
  46. is very accurate and gives exact results where normal language gives
  47. up. But not everything is true that can be proven by mathematics, it
  48. is just conclusive. Let`s use our imagination first...
  50. For the following we begin at the simplest point. Try to experience
  51. your surroundings as a one-dimensional beeing. You can use all your
  52. senses as in hot/cold, hard/soft, light/dark, silent/loud. You can
  53. move only along one line in one direction - forward. So, now you are
  54. sitting in your easychair and start to move as a tiny speck of dust.
  55. At first the world is soft and comfortable; the room`s centre gets a
  56. bit more cool, although light; then, at the wall, it is extremely
  57. hard, dark and uncomfortable, and so on. For every section of the
  58. way you have gone you have a single, irreversible impression. Sounds
  59. familiar doesn`t it, like we think of the "eternal flow of time and
  60. aeons". But let`s steer clear of spectulation that would not be apt
  61. for a speck of dust.
  63. Resume: when every section of this way has it`s own distinct
  64. characteristic (not affectable by time, because time doesn`t exist),
  65. it is inconceivable for us that in some places other conditions
  66. along the same lenght in same sector may exist, just to the right or
  67. left of the way. Don`t forget - right/left have not been invented
  68. yet!
  70. Were it able to move left or right, if only slightly, it might be
  71. able to experience different conditions on the same spot of its
  72. one-dimensional axis (on a border, a corner, a different surface).
  73. But what lies outside its one-dimensional paradigm is unknowable.
  74. The model for this paradigm is, therefore, that along the dimension
  75. there can only be one condition at one spot.
  77. Let`s shift now to a 2-dimensional paradigm. Now the first dimension
  78. and the 2nd can be used, and the room presents itself to us like a
  79. section with an even surface. Along the first dimension there are
  80. still the same conditions as before, but to the side (left/right)
  81. there are some more.
  83. The model is changed as follows: along dimension 1 (lenght) there
  84. can be different conditions, but at different levels of dimension 2
  85. (width). This new being acts in a more familiar manner as, like maps
  86. for example, it orients itself according to a horizontal and
  87. vertical axis.
  89. You can guess how the riddle continues. We learn to move or grow up
  90. and down. Now different conditions are possible on the same surface
  91. coordinates but at different heights and depths. In the new paradigm
  92. there is only one condition at one point in space.
  94. Finally, we shift to our normal paradigm by adding time. We can now
  95. observe different conditions at the same point of space at different
  96. times, and can formulate the paradigm as follows: At the same point
  97. in space only one object can exist at the same time. This is a long
  98. established model of physics, matching perfectly our mechanical
  99. world and our senses.
  101. In this mental experiment we have learned 2 things:
  103. 1, Moving along a dimension, one can recognize differences. This is
  104. the characteristic of a dimension, not its definition.
  105. 2, After each shift to the next dimension, the model (dogma) of the
  106. preceding one is superseded. Generally, the most recent dimension is
  107. a continuum, ie., a dimension that goes irreversible in one
  108. direction. Our own paradigm model consists of the (old) 3 space
  109. dimension plus the (new) time as a continuum. How could a world look
  110. like that contains one dimension more, the fifth one, called "E" or
  111. Ennead for example? (I think Ennead is an expression from a science
  112. fiction novel, but the Ancient Egyptians had a similar expression
  113. for the place where all possibilities exist that don`t exist here;
  114. or where all the possibilities manifest that are kept by us from
  115. manifesting in this world here.)
  117. You can construct the new model dogma by yourself: at one and the
  118. same point of space and time there CAN be different conditions
  119. (objects, colours, temperatures...), but at a different Ennead(!!).
  121. BUT: at the same point of space at the same time and Ennead, there
  122. is again only one condition (object etc.) possible! This game can
  123. theoretically be continued forever, but soon gets uninteresting,
  124. because everything becomes far-fetched.
  126. The step to the next dimension implies several interesting changes
  127. because:
  128. - first of all it calls for the parallel existence of different
  129. things and events, side-by-side and at the same spot of the
  130. space/time-paradigm. This sounds very much like the sometimes
  131. incomprehensible reports of mystic experiences, whether from
  132. contemporary times like the Seth-books, or long ago, like Meister
  133. Eckhart, Tauler or Seuse. It is also similar to the picture of the 4
  134. worlds of the Kabbala which exists inside one another, and it makes
  135. certain Egyptian mysteries understandable.
  136. - it makes a huge number of connections possible that we normally
  137. would not think of. Numerous events inexplicable by rational
  138. thinking may have their roots here, because causality is only valid
  139. in the exact space/time paradigm and loses its ultimate character
  140. the moment a new dimension is brought in.
  141. - most probably, and here all thinking and imagination stops, it
  142. replaces the time continuum with a ubiquitous time dimension (like
  143. length, width and height in our paradigm) where we can move freely
  144. forwards and backwards - but always at the same Ennead. Again, this
  145. dimension shift doesn`t free us completely, it just opens a gate and
  146. makes the next border visible.
  148. The question about the quality or sense of this new E-dimension
  149. remains unanswered. But our familiar dimensions also have no state
  150. or sense or quality; they just exist and make us feel that they
  151. exist by limitations of our sense of movement etc. Although we live
  152. in this system, we cannot give a real definition of it (should we
  153. really?), only some more or less mathematical explanations. We just
  154. experience that along a dimension something changes. Dimensions let
  155. things happen. We feel something has changed along a dimension and
  156. we measure it by looking for regular changes. We measure time by
  157. observing the regular movements of the sun and the earth, but with
  158. no feeling for their pure quality.
  160. Also, a new dimension E would not change our world radically; its
  161. only effect to our paradigm would be that some additional things
  162. happened - miraculously side-by-side in time. But as we have no
  163. sensors for this, it would be totally imperceptible. And should a
  164. short impression slip through, it would be instantly erased by our
  165. mind`s censor. Moreover, if some of us should get to this dimension
  166. it would prove nearly impossible to explain it to others; having no
  167. common language, comparisons or symbols for it.
  169. This mental experiment has done its job, if we have achieved a
  170. feeling for what supradimensionality could be. Our paradigm is not
  171. the ultimate possibility, others exist - in between!
  173. Other Forms of Existence:
  174. Anyone used to observing nature from the heart, will have seen
  175. that it doesn`t like to have jumps in it; especially when it is only
  176. to be fitted into an artificial theoretical system  of the human
  177. brain`s. Therefore, it is not consequent to assume that our paradigm
  178. of a space+time-continuum is the only valid system. The motto cannot
  179. be: "either you are with us in our system, or you are non-existent!"
  180. - a logiical chain that we tend to follow all too often.  If there
  181. are more simple dimensional systems, they will surely have their
  182. inhabitants. However, the creative amongst you should refrain from
  183. designing flat monsters for a 2-dimensional world now. As explained
  184. before, this all exists in our world, one in the other!
  186. Again a little mental experiment may show us the way. Let`s imagine
  187. the following:
  188. 1, We put away all conditions related to the last dimension, the
  189. continuum. At the same time the last-but-one dimension becomes the
  190. continuum automatically, as explained before, because the last
  191. dimension always is a continuum (!!). It is interesting that our
  192. time-continuum physically is related only to movement, which means
  193. that everything able to move freely can experience time.(As stated
  194. here, the gift that our space+time paradigm gives to us is motion.
  195. Now, in Ancient Egypt, a very important symbol was the Ankh,
  196. meaningg originally a sandal`s belt (scientists say). So, the
  197. meaning of the respective hieroglyph means "TO WALK". On Egyptian
  198. pictures, when a GOD gives life to a HUMAN he hands an ANKH to him,
  199. i.e. giving him LIFE = TO WALK = MOVEMENT.)
  200. So we ignore everything that has to do  with motion. And the space
  201. becomes continuum.
  202. 2, We look for forms of existing lacking exactly that last paradigm
  203. element, ie., (in our case) time and movement.
  204. That means we are looking for something that fulfills the picture of
  205. this reduced paradigm. In our previous example: something that
  206. doesn`t move, but spreads in space continuously and irreversibly.
  207. Just let the picture grow before thinking further; that`s it -
  208. GROWING! Anything that grows steadily and cannot shrink
  209. deliberately.
  211. We may think of plants growing, clouds rising, micro-organism, fungi
  212. etc. For example, a tree starts from an exact point in space (the
  213. seed) and spreads evenly according to a distinct blueprint. Its
  214. size, especially the section rings of its stem, correlate exactly
  215. with its age; that means spatial growing and age match exactly. It
  216. cannot shrink definitely; it is able to drop leaves or branches, but
  217. they soon grow back to make it fill the same space occupied before.
  218. The process of spatial growth is irreversible. A harrowing thought -
  219. most probably we "grow" through time in the same manner! Maybe, even
  220. like some herbs or grass that die off in Autumn and grow again in
  221. the Spring - a pictoresque allegory of death and rebirth!
  223. For our next example we again take one dimension less. Now there is
  224. no free (active) motion and no growth in space. The continuum is the
  225. surface. A much more tricky paradigm. Something existing here must
  226. have the tendency to spread in surface as much as possible and never
  227. contract again deliberately. Hmmm.. what`s the biggest surface on
  228. earth? Of course, water! Water, as a liquid, can be formed freely,
  229. as it has no fixed form and will mould itself to fit any surface.
  230. But it cannot be compressed, and has the tendency to fill a space
  231. from beneath with the maximum of even surface at the same time. The
  232. gain with this form of existence is in the changeability of form -
  233. its flexibility and adaptability. The picture for this is the ocean,
  234. the river, or organisms like lichens which exist in clumps or
  235. patches.
  237. Our next move is one more step towards reduction of existence. Now
  238. there is no area and no spreading over a surface. The continuum is
  239. dimension 1, the line, and everything else is fixed. In this
  240. paradigm all solid objects exist. Changes, if any, are only allowed
  241. along one line and are irreversible as in falling towards a center
  242. of gravity for example, or rolling down a slope. This dimension 1
  243. does not have to be a straight line, but is the most efficient and
  244. best way of coming nearer to the center of attraction. Irreversible.
  246. It`s interesting to see that we humans still align our orientation
  247. in space according to these same systems as described. The vertical
  248. line is a solid object hanging down, the plumb-rule; the horizontal
  249. surface, the level, is adjusted by hydrostatic balance (with
  250. water!). And the only independent (ie., not geodetic) system for
  251. measuring height is an instrument derived from a barometer (the
  252. altigraph), which works on the basis of the expansion and reduction
  253. of a specific gas volume in a sealed shell.
  255. These thoughts are certainly a little bit hard to chew on, but I`m
  256. sure they give enough themes for meditation.
  258. Here`s an example for a simple meditation; freestyle of course. Get
  259. yourself into a trance-journey somehow. You may use a shamanic
  260. technique or jump through a Tattwa sign or whatever you prefer and
  261. are best used to. Let`s take the water element for example.
  262. According to classical technique, you imagine the horizontal syrinx
  263. sign and go through it (but in silver and not in green as usual when
  264. you want to explore the water world) and become the water yourself.
  265. Try to let the feeling flow freely. Flow down, spread, split into
  266. drops while breaking on a stone that lies in the water way; flow
  267. down as a torrent etc.; trickle to the ground; evaporate to the sky;
  268. experience total passivity in the respect of controlled growth or
  269. active motion. Be totally passive! It is important to collect
  270. oneself after this meditation and perform a thorough earthing. This
  271. exercise is comparatively easy with the water element. It is also
  272. possible with a 3-dimensional system (plant or cloud), but more
  273. complicated, or with 1-dimensional system (solid object), but the
  274. latter takes a long time in my experience.
  276. The purpose of this exercise is to get a feeling for the structure
  277. and physical reality of other dimensional existence and their
  278. relation with other systems, and to comprehend that these need not
  279. be projected to distant universes, but really exist in our world and
  280. that we meet them every day.
  282. For people dealing with magic it is of immense value to get the
  283. right feeling of the existence of one universe in the other, and to
  284. be able to shift from a low dimensional system to a supradimensional
  285. system and vice versa. This is because we face many phenomena
  286. reaching into our paradigm from other systems. For example, severe
  287. distortions of reality go hand-in-hand with deep trance, (lucid)
  288. dreams and precognition. These all make our reality and our normal
  289. environment appear more or less different from normal experience:
  290. for example, when we experience our home in dream reality or on a
  291. mental journey, the table in the room isn`t where it normally used
  292. to be or maybe the window is on another wall and looks into a
  293. different landscape etc.. All this is due to distortions along the
  294. 5th dimension (the Ennead as I named it provisionally).
  296. Let`s continue our little mental experiment, but this time in the
  297. forward direction. At first we see no differences, when we go from
  298. our paradigm to a 4+1 dimensional system. Obviously we have no sense
  299. and no feeling for what`s happening when we go beyond our 3+1
  300. (space+time) system. So the new mental experiment leads nowhere.
  301. It`s worth it to demonstrate that no practical model comes from
  302. mental speculations in this direction. But we can derive a
  303. description from our "experiences" with low-dimensional systems.
  304. Keeping the last paradigms in mind and adding a new dimension, the
  305. Ennead, we can formulate the new paradigm by same method as follows:
  307. "At the same place in space at the same time there ARE different
  308. conditions possible at different E-dimensions."
  310. Exactly like the addition of a "new" time-dimension to the old 2+1
  311. (area+space) paradigm makes free movement possible for the first
  312. time, so also the addition of a new dimension E to our 3+1 paradigm
  313. makes it possible (at least theoretically) for the following to
  314. exist:
  315. - the one-inside-the-other-existence of different entities and
  316. conditions
  317. - parallel worlds
  318. - events occuring simultaneously in time
  319. - time travel (forward and backwards).
  321. The key to all this seems to be the existence of "parallel worlds",
  322. and I want to take a little look into how our ability to distinguish
  323. objects function. If different things exist on the same spot at the
  324. same time this implies that the same things exist in different
  325. worlds (systems, universes etc., it`s all the same!). The
  326. explanation for this you will find in the section Other Forms of
  327. Existence. Things are distinguishable for us by their presence
  328. (POSITION in space+time) and their QUALITY (that we check by our
  329. senses). They are different if they have different position and/or
  330. quality. Example: sheep A is as dull as sheep B, looks the same,
  331. sounds the same, smells the same. I know they are different as one
  332. stands beside the other (ie. at different positions at the same
  333. time). If there are enough sheep that are so similar and they run
  334. among each other, I can distiguish nothing. That is unless I mark
  335. them to make them look different; or one has changed its appearence,
  336. by having been sheared, for instance. Then it looks different at a
  337. different time, but still is essentially the same. In all these
  338. cases we orient according to differences and coherence of existence,
  339. and not very reliably at that. I want to show with this shaggy sheep
  340. tale that the question of continuous existence throughout different
  341. positions and qualities is not easily resolved, and therefore we
  342. should be carefully before we discount all talk of "double
  343. existence, parallel worlds etc.".
  345. Existence is hard to imagine and contradicts with experience and
  346. commonsense unless we postulate the existence of parallel worlds in
  347. which all possibilities at least potential exist. But only one
  348. possibility becomes reality. By taking this thought further, we see
  349. that all these parallel worlds contain the possibilities of life,
  350. and we move through all this, making reality out of one of them - by
  351. DECISION or free will, call it as you like. A picture that we also
  352. find in some of Castaneda`s books.
  354. Outlook:
  355. The question remains unanswered is: What makes these parallel worlds
  356. manifest (ie. how often do "I" exist) or just remain hypothetical
  357. assumptions. But this is without importance for us at the moment. In
  358. a simple and subjective way, only that which we experience actually
  359. manifests. For me it appears dimly that out of Ennead only the
  360. parallel worlds through which we pass by our subjective experience,
  361. our acting and our reality become reality and sharply outlined. All
  362. else remains dim and unreal but may be experienced by others - who
  363. knows? This is similar to a widespread network of rails in a railway
  364. shunting station, with numerous railtracks linked by switches, but
  365. only ONE track being used by a train. The switches stand for
  366. important decisions which open this or that way. According to our
  367. decisions we pass a track leading more "up" or "down", more "ahead"
  368. or "back" (all seen from Ennead), or we just shuttle back and forth
  369. in the middle. To help to understand this we can look at certain
  370. games, like chess, that show how the chain of events is
  371. predetermined by decisions that lie far back in the past. By playing
  372. chess you can get an idea of the reality of fate, and that some
  373. errors taken in the past can hardly be set right whilst some may
  374. easily be. These causal chains may be very long in any case.
  376. The previously described Ennead system could work in a similar
  377. fashion to this: exactly like our space+time paradigm enables us to
  378. move, so the jump into the space/time+ennead paradigm opens the
  379. gates to potentiality and its network of connections. Although we
  380. cannot take part in this because of our limited senses, and we
  381. cannot jump into the next dimension and its adherent paradigm, we
  382. can take a peek behind the curtain and at least get a feeling for
  383. the kind of interference therein. It may open a new view on things
  384. hitherto believed to be inevitable: the passing of time, all our
  385. actions and interactions, and on fate itself. Are we just
  386. "programmed" towards another taget or direction, that can only be
  387. seen from above, from Ennead, from the next dimension? Do we "move"
  388. in Ennead with our decisions (and this implies things like
  389. character, mental attitudes, views and opinions, by which we decide
  390. on this or that way)?
  392. However, for a being fixed and rooted in his/its paradigm, there is
  393. not much difference how it decides. A root or a branch can grow in
  394. this or that way, and reacts to certain stimuli like light or water,
  395. but remains fixed and not suited for free movement. The more simple
  396. an animal is organized, the more unidirectional its reactions are:
  397. "lurk - snap - gorge" and suchlike. The (occasionally) more complex
  398. motivations of men lead me conclude that we may be on the threshold
  399. before the door to the next paradigm. (Similar to plant-like
  400. organisms, corals for example, that are fixed to the ground but can
  401. push out and pull in their tentacles... Hagazussa already?).
  403. We can "move" in this way - and this is certainly the most noble
  404. expression of "do what thou wilt" and Thelema - by influencing our
  405. position in Ennead consciously and constantly, and without mercy
  406. giving our decisions a certain orientation and thereby "moving" with
  407. this through Ennead and the parallel worlds. (If our personal
  408. "thelema" was not a nonsense ie. Choronzon.) I`m sure many of you
  409. have experienced that after somebody changed their attitude and
  410. opinions, sometimes their environment also begins to change, but
  411. without any causal reasons! Just the right people appear; some lucky
  412. (or unlucky) opportunities open up; old friends seem to withdraw and
  413. appear more and more strange... Maybe a new parallel world has
  414. opened, and you move in? But besides these speculations and as a
  415. last consequence this means we bring all that we face by our own
  416. decisions, and we blame nobody else but our own goodselves for "all
  417. the bad luck and hard days we suffer from". On the other hand we are
  418. not responsible to anything/anybody/anygod for all the shit we are
  419. in... its our own hard way! All that has to do with character
  420. building starts here. Here and now and in our own earthbound an
