I would spend hours fascinated by the carp, who lived in a very shallow pond just inches beneath the lily pads, just beneath my fingers, totally oblivious to the universe above them. Beginning with Einstein, the giants of twenti- eth-century physics have tried and failed to find such a unifying scheme.

I noticed that the pond’s surface was bombarded by thousands of tiny raindrops.

This seminal concept has sparked an avalanche of scientific research: Albert Einstein The Education of a Physicist T WO incidents from my childhood greatly enriched my understand- ing of the world and sent me on course to become a hyperspacce physicist.

The only theory which has survived every challenge posed to it is called superstring theory, in which this 10 dimensional universe is inhabited by tiny strings. To understand how adding higher dimensions can simplify physical problems, consider the following example: But the decisive break he oaku was to put these bookworms on a crumpled sheet of paper.

And there kauk stops. Wormholes may also connect an infinite series of parallel universes. Higher-dimensional spaces are impossible to visualize; so it is futile even to try.


I still remem- ber solving a problem in electrodynamics for my instructor, and then asking him what the solution might look like if space were curved in a higher dimension. However, Alan Guth of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who has made many important contributions in cosmology, shocked many physicists a few years ago when he claimed that the physics of wormholes may make it possible to create a baby universe of our own in the laboratory.

Hyperspace and a Theory of Everything

This theory, because it is a theory of everything, is really a theory of Creation. Dodgson, who taught at Oxford University, delighted generations of schoolchildren by writing books — as Lewis Carroll — that incorporate these strange math- ematical ideas.

If we walk around the cut, we stay within the same space. In this book he uses what we know about quantum physics to explore possibilities formerly relegated exclusively to science fiction. Scientists and philosophers, like Charles Darwin and Bertrand Russell, have written mournfully about the futility of our pitiful exis- tence, knowing that our civilization will inexorably die when our world ends.

We spend our life in three spatial dimensions, confident that what we can see with our telescopes is all there is, ignorant of the possibility of 10 dimensional hyperspace.

Kaku, check out his website: Then, partly as a result ofbrooding on it, partly from staying indoors too much hyperspacr this vile weather, I fell ill. Like other physicists, I began a rigorous and thorough program of studying the higher mathematics of each of the forces of nature separately, in complete isolation from one another.

The school systems should think about this book as part of their cirriculum to teach the importance of understanding physics. In the final analysis, we are physicists, not philosophers. We would walk like a drunkard, as though an unseen force were tugging at us, pushing us left and right. In fact, we have to make strong assump- tions in order to prevent time travel from taking place.


In this book, we will study the work of these pioneering mystics, mainly because they devised ingenious ways in which a nonspecialist could “visualize” what higher-dimensional objects might look like. Intelligent beings might inhabit some of these planes, completely unaware of the existence of the others.

First, he said, draw three mutually perpendicular lines. In fact, those humans who could better visualize how objects move, turn, and twist in three dimensions had a distinct survival advantage over those who could not.

hypersace The old Kaluza-Klein theory, however, could not determine the correct value of N, and there were technical problems in describing all the subatomic particles. If you’ve thought science is dull or perhaps too far beyond you, then please meet Michio Kaku. The Language of Physics Fields were first introduced by the great nineteenth-century British sci- entist Michael Faraday. We will call hypefspace the fourth temporal dimension.

They said that very few people could understand his ideas, but that his discoveries changed the entire world and everything around us. In this book he uses what we know about quantum phy Michio Kaku apparently spent his childhood building super-colliders in his parents’ garage.
