About six years ago, a really close friend of mine was an avid atheist and had sent me that video. His purpose in doing so was to demonstrate that God did not exist because we are simply a byproduct of dimensions. At 14, I didn't want to hear anything that made my brain actually have to process something. About a year ago (a year and six days, to be exact), I watched this video again in my many efforts to disprove the existence of God and theology (all of which were failed experiments that only strengthened my faith.) Instead of being discouraged, however, I was spiritually rejuvenated.
And here's why: The very video that was sent to me in an effort to disprove God, in fact, proved his existence. My basis for this analysis is rooted in the very title of the video; "Imagining the Tenth Dimension".
To me, upon watching the video again, it was clear that the tenth dimension was, in fact, the almighty. To conceptualize this, lets observe some of the aspects of God in relation to the tenth dimension.
In the fourth dimension, we can ascertain that while duration is an unbendable, intangible dimension by which we cannot cross -- this is not necessarily the case for the dimensions above us. Which, in turn, means that the concept of time is as easily traversed by an upper-dimensional being as diagonal is to us.
Taking this into account, we can then deduce that an argument like "Well, who created God?" is deficient to the nature of God as the laws of time do not apply to us. As my mom told me when I asked that question at age five, "God is, was and always will be."
I didn't develop/observe this portion of the theory on my own. So, I will just link you to the guy who did here.
Another argument frequented by skeptics is, "Well, how can free will and omniscience exist mutually?" What we can begin to understand by illustrating God as a tenth dimensional being is the many branching timelines (not only in time, but space.) Because of this, God's omniscience extends beyond parlor fortune-telling; he can actually see every decision we can possibly fathom and then some simultaneously.
In turn, this means that our decisions are still our own and acting completely separate from our choices is God's knowledge of everything, including what decisions we will make. The two are, in fact, as divorced from one another as my knowledge that our government is going to bankrupt our country and Congress's free will to continue to run up our national debt.
We are to God as a subconscious thought is to us. Acting entirely of our own, but implicitly a part of our psyche.
In the seventh dimension on, we move beyond infinity as a single point, wherein all aspects of our universe are contained, a traverse into the fragments of the omniverse. The interesting part about this is that this also contains our laws of physics.
Consider the law of conservation of matter. Because it is simply a byproduct of our own infinity, it is not applicable to the tenth dimension. This, in turn, gives life to the notion of an intelligent designer, effortlessly creating reality as we know it. An all-powerful being capable of manifesting the universe as we know it starts to become a fathomable reality.
Questions like "Can God create a rock so large that even he cannot lift it?" are thus debunked because it is applying finite means to an infinite object. Because our physics and laws do not apply to God, he can very well both create such an object and still lift it, while maintaining the logical format of the question.
An apologetic argument has been posited that God = the number zero. Because zero is a point of origin; both existing and not existing -- it has been cited as the very definition of God by some. Essentially, the idea that God is not absent, but absence is, instead, God. He is, in fact, present in all that is not he because he is an origin.
This is explanatory, but lacking full developmental potential in its delivery. It is fairer to say that dimension zero and the tenth dimension come full circle. They are both represented by a single point (which, itself, should lend credence to monotheistic theology) and share a commonality. To illustrate their kinship, associate the two dimensions with the numbers zero and infinity. While God is beyond infinite (kind of gives Buzz Lightyear's whole "to infinity and beyond" motto new meaning, doesn't it?), we use zero and infinity as definitive parameters.
But it goes beyond that. Because each layer is stacked upon one another, God is representative from dimension zero all the way to the tenth. This is because a single dimension can only interact and fathom its own dimension in addition to those beneath it. As God is representative of the peak dimension, he is thus able to interact with all of the dimensions below him (everything.)
Robert Bryanton, the maker of the video at the beginning of this article and the author of the book by the same name, actually defines the 10th dimension as a "big, beautiful, perfectly balanced zero, which is not empty, but full of all the other possible states." Elsewhere, he states:
"We've talked in previous blogs about fractals, sacred geometry, water and its connection to life and inspiration, and how the 'zero' and the 'ten' in my way of visualizing the dimensions are really two complimentary ways of looking at the same thing: perceiving the underlying perfectly balanced symmetry state that our universe or any other springs from. One thing I've remarked upon before is that the 'zero', as a point, represents the push towards the infinitely small, and the 'ten' represents the push towards the infinitely large, but both are part of the same continuum (and are represented as such in the graphic created for this project - the zero and ten are on a line, and the other dimensions are 'outside' of that line). Within my way of visualizing the dimensions, then, the zero and ten are of indeterminate size, and the other dimensions represent ways of slicing up infinity to get to more specific subsets of reality, including a universe such as our own.
Much as we can perceive everything below us, so can God.
Much of this is difficult to conceive, but much like our 2-dimensional flat lander walking along the mobius strip in the third dimension (while not feeling as though they had left the second dimension at all) and the residents in Plato's "Allegory of the Cave", it is because we are limited to what is within our scope of reason. But just because the metaphysical Overton Window is not opened to the tenth dimension does not mean that it does not exist. It simply means that our knowledge is limited and the simple logic of our forefathers prevails once again: "God's knowledge is infinite and beyond our scope of understanding."
This, of course, also means that we are fully capable of denying the dimensions above us just as our flatlander friend is fully capable of denying that the mobius strip he walked along is actually a three-dimensional object.
