10 Dimensions

2004-04-11 13:59:59.049142+00 by meuon 2 comments

An attempt at explaining the 10 dimensions and Calabi-Yau manifolds. - You might want to be on some good mind altering drugs when you read this.. "Like so much congealed fat, we are prevented from escaping the brane and going into the higher-dimensional soup. -- Only gravity is allowed to do that."

as i read the popular science article about calabi-yau manifold's, i was reminded of M.C.Escher and his dimensional drawings. he has done several drawings that have you entering one door way and coming out upside down, inside out...looks a lot like the dimensions talked about in the article. interesting...and didn't require and mind altering drugs while reading, although the 6 glasses of wine may have helped, lol. thanks, meuon!
