Three Logical Proofs: The Five-Dimensional Reality of Space-Time

  title={Three Logical Proofs: The Five-Dimensional Reality of Space-Time},
  author={James E. Beichler},
A century and a half ago, a revolution in human thought began that has gone largely unrecognized by modern scholars: A system of non-Euclidean geometries was developed that literally changed the way that we view our world. At first, some thought that space itself was non-Euclidean and four-dimensional, but Einstein ended that 'speculation' when he declared that time was the fourth dimension. Yet our commonly perceived space is four-dimensional. Einstein unwittingly circumvented that particular…

Stochastic granular 5-dimensional space-time and quantum theory
Much of quantum mechanics may be derived if one adopts a very strong form of Mach’s Principle, requiring that in the absence of mass, space-time becomes not flat but stochastic. But points
Modern Fysics Phallacies: the Best Way 'not to Unify Physics' is the Only Way 'to Unify Physics'
Too many physicists believe the ‘phallacy’ that the quantum is more fundamental than relativity without any valid supporting evidence, so the earliest attempts to unify physics based on the
Stochastic Space-Time and Quantum Theory: Part C: Five-Dimensional Space-Time
This is a continuation of Parts A and B which describe a stochastic, granular space-time model. In this, Part C, in order to tessellate the space-time manifold, it was necessary to introduce a fifth


The Road to Reality : A Complete Guide to the Laws of the Universe
For the title of his latest epic, The Road to Reality , Roger Penrose has selected a metaphor that appears frequently in popular expositions of physics. It is no wonder that the phrase has become a

It will be the task of this article to try to detect also odier conventions, which explicitly or implicidy were made, in defining die number of dimensions of the authors' physical space and time.
On the Space-Theory of Matter
Riemann has shown that as there are different kinds of lines and surfaces, so there are different kinds of space of three dimensions; and that we can only find out by experience to which of these
Partial Differential Equations of Mathematical Physics
THE main work of mathematical physicists is to represent the sequence of phenomena in time and space by means of differential equations, and to solve these equations. Even the revolution effected by
On the Hypotheses Which Lie at the Bases of Geometry
Plan of the Investigation IT is known that geometry assumes, as things given, both the notion of space and the first principles of constructions in space. She gives definitions of them which are
An Alternative to compactification
Conventional wisdom states that Newton's force law implies only four noncompact dimensions. We demonstrate that this is not necessarily true in the presence of a nonfactorizable background geometry.
A Large mass hierarchy from a small extra dimension
We propose a new higher-dimensional mechanism for solving the hierarchy problem. The weak scale is generated from the Planck scale through an exponential hierarchy. However, this exponential arises
Significance of Electromagnetic Potentials in the Quantum Theory
In this paper, we discuss some interesting properties of the electromagnetic potentials in the quantum domain. We shall show that, contrary to the conclusions of classical mechanics, there exist
On an Expression of the Electromagnetic Field due to Electrons by Means of Two Scalar Potential Functions
The object of the present paper is to show that when any number of electrons are moving in any manner, the functions which define the resulting electrodynamics field, namely, the three components of
