If there was a demension that occupied 4 dimensional space...it would also, and simultaneously occupy all dimensions below it.
To put it simply. 2d can go up and down, left and right. 3d can go up and down, left and right, and diagonal. 4d can go up, down, left, right, diagonal, and another plane of direction which can not be detected by a 3 dimensional entity.
This deals with the notion of PARRELELL UNIVERSES, not multi-universes.
These scientist are not looking for universes that occupy the same space...(parallel) but rather universe that have budded of from a unknown source, but still the same source our universe has.
They are checking by looking for the energy signals (backround radiation) left from our universe and another universe contacting each other.
The search for this energy IS CREDIBLE, due to the research on the uniform distibution of microwave radiation left behind by the big bang.
STRING THEORIST ON THE OTHER HAND need to prove that this background radiation (microwave) is not from a big bang but from two universal objects interacting with each other.
Honestly...I think string theorist are funny, and I cant possibly fatham a better scientific explanation of the physical word than the big bang. But who knows, in 20 years with a enough research to back them up...they may replace the Big Bang Theory...but its gonna be very very very tough.Edited by fapestar - 8/11/11 at 9:06pm
