Into the Multiverse

click on the video below for the full story Researchers Arturo Tozzi and James F. Peters have just released a paper that seems to state the human brain might actually operate in four spatial dimensions instead of only three. Yet, as is typical in scientific circles, the paper is in no way written for the layman and is, therefore, incredibly difficult to understand the consequences of what this could mean. One article attempted to take pieces of the paper and explain it to the general public (at least some are trying), though it seems to be written by someone who specializes more in neuroscience rather than quantum physics. This is not a criticism of that fact, of course; it is only to say there is another side to this story. I personally have the opposite problem; I specialize more on the quantum physics side of things and know little to nothing about neuroscience. Therefore, between the previously-linked article above and this one, my hope is we will have a better grasp at what is really going on here. Let us then examine the paper and see what we can learn.  From topology, a strong concept comes into play in understanding brain functions, namely, the 4D space of a ‘‘hypersphere’s torus’’, undetectable by observers living in a 3D world… Here we hypothesize that brain functions are embedded in a imperceptible fourth spatial dimension and propose a method to empirically assess its presence. Clearly, this was written for physicists. This is basically saying that the researchers, Tozzi and Peters, believe the actual functions of the brain either utilize, or can be found in, the fourth dimension of space. The best thought exercise to try and understand what a fourth dimension of space would look and behave like is that of Flatland. Any reader of my work or viewers of my shows should already be familiar with the concept of Flatland. For those who are new, Flatland is a hypothetical two-dimensional universe inhabited by creatures called "Flatlanders". Flatlanders possess the ability to perceive only two-dimensions encompassing four directions instead of the normal six directions accessible in our three dimensions of space (up, down, left, right, forward, backward). A Flatlander would have no concept of up and down if his universe is horizontal, or would have no concept to forward and backward if his universe is vertical. Therefore, we can ask the question, what would a three-dimensional ball look like to a Flatlander if it passed through Flatland? How would you, as a three-dimensional being, interact with a Flatlander?  Basically, the Flatlander would see the ball as a circle that grows and shrinks as it enters and exits Flatland space. He would see you with the same two-dimensional perspective. We can use this as an example of how an object of four spatial dimensions would interact with our three-dimensional world. If a hypersphere (a sphere of four dimensions) were to breach our space, we would see it the same as Flatlanders, only adding one dimension. Instead of a two-dimensional circle, we would see a three-dimensional sphere grow and shrink as it enters and exits our space.  This can help us in trying to understand what the researchers are talking about with four-dimensional space. Imagine if the brain functions of a Flatlander actually occurred here in our three-dimensional space. In fact, imagine if the Flatlander brain, or entirely physiology, actually extended into our dimension. Yet, because they still have a two-dimensional limited perception, they would have no way of knowing it. This is essentially what the paper in question suggests; that we, as three-dimensional entities, might actually extend into the fourth spatial dimension. Though, due to our limited three-dimensional perspective, we would never know it. How do thoughts flow in the brain? Current advances in neuroscience emphasize the role of energetic landscapes (Watanabe et al. 2014; Sengupta et al. 2013), a sort of functional linens equipped with peaks, valleys and basins made of free-energy, where thoughts move, following erratic and/or constrained trajectories… This review, based on recent findings, introduces the concept of a spatial fourth dimension, where brain functions might take place, as a general device underlying our thoughts’ dynamics.This section is using the idea of the origin of thoughts to explain why a fourth dimension of space might be necessary. Imagine if thoughts were actually real and had physicality, yet that type of realism was completely foreign to us because of our limited, three-dimensional perception. It would take a four-dimensional brain (or at least a three-dimensional brain that operates in four dimensions) to be able to interpret them in a way we can understand. Is it possible these are what thoughts actually are?  Think again to the Flatlander who is actually three-dimensional but believes he is only two-dimensional. Flatlanders would only be able to understand the two-dimensional slice of the brain they could physically see and study. The rest of the Flatlander brain, which exists in the third dimension, would be completely foreign and unknowable. Therefore, there would have to be some mechanism within the two-dimensional part of the knowable Flatlander brain to interpret everything else from it's third dimension in a way the Flatlander could understand. This is what Tozzi and Peters are suggesting for us.  Brains equipped with a hypersphere is a counter-intuitive hypothesis, since we live in a 3D world with no immediate perception that 4D space exists at all. We need thus to evaluate indirect clues of the undetectable fourth dimension… Simply enough, this section is stating that, on the surface, this idea of the brain utilizing and/or existing within a fourth spatial dimension is, at least on the surface, useless because we have no way of accessing the fourth dimension. Though, as the researchers who wrote the paper allude to, there are other ways of testing that might provide useful results.  The activation of a single point on the 3D brain S2 surface leads to the activation of two antipodal points on the 4D brain S3 surface (Fig. 3b). In turn, the activation of two antipodal points on S3 leaves on the 3D brain S2 surface ‘‘hallmarks’’ which can be detected by currently available neuroimaging techniques. This is where the paper really delves more into the neuroscience aspect of this entire hypothesis, of which I am not equipped to comment on with any sort of intellectual authority. It seems to me, based on what is said here, that at least the two researchers believe there is a way of testing the brain in order to see if it actually operates and/or exists within a fourth dimension of space. For more on this, I will have to refer you back to the aforementioned article that was written about this paper. Also, there is further hope for us to understand some more about this. I have heard that SkyWatchTV's resident science expert, who actually does specialize in biology sciences, will be covering this story in a future episode of SciFriday, so make sure to subscribe to the official SciFriday YouTube Channel for more information on that. Also don't forget to subscribe to Into the Multiverse, a show I host with my wife Christina, for more about quantum physics and the Bible for the layman.  Lastly, this idea of us as human beings possibly existing in some way within an extra dimension of space should not scare or worry us. Yes, it is true, certain new age and eastern sects have taken this idea and ran off the cliff with it, but that doesn't mean we have to fear it. There might even be biblical evidences for accepting this idea as a possibility within God's grand design. Ephesians chapter 2 tells us that Christ sees us seated with Him in Heaven already, meaning there is a part of us that is outside of space and time. Therefore, amazingly enough, this strange idea about the brain might have some validity to it. Now, of course, that doesn't mean we as Christians should be trying to tap into that dimension or involve ourselves in new age and eastern practices; the Bible forbids those actions for a reason. However we can consider these possibilities and allow them to grow within us a deeper appreciation and reverence for the One True God and His amazing creative power.  This is a fascinating concept that would be outside of our direct purposes to go too deep into here, however if you would like more information, I can direct you to my two books Quantum Creation and Cherubim Chariots.
