In summary, the 9 finite dimensions appear mathematically feasible, yet applying the math to any other number of dimensions, like the 10, 11 or 26 as in some String Theories, or the 4, as in our experience of our day-to-day reality, produces errors: TDVP scientifically and mathematically motivates multiple dimensions, and Close and Neppe show that there are likely 3 carefully defined dimensions each of Space, Time and Consciousness. For Close: “Mathematically, the spin is the key: These rotational movements—the ‘vortices’—allow a way to move through dimensions.” These scientists had to develop new mathematical techniques to derive their information: These include the ‘Calculus of Distinctions’ (the ‘Sparkling Diamond’) and ‘Dimensional Extrapolation’ . They also, of course, relied on already well-established conventional mathematical techniques to help in the exploration of the many ‘extra’ dimensions.
The Quantum Jewel: Arkani-Hamed and Collaborators
The second major 2013 event in Mathematical Physics occurred in September. Quanta Magazine published an article “A Jewel at the Heart of Quantum Physics”. The author described how physicists, Nima Arkani-Hamed, Jaroslav Trnka at the Institute for Advanced Study, along with other collaborators, discovered a new technique for applying multidimensional mathematics and pointed to the relevance of spin by incorporating ‘twistors.'
Arkani-Hamed and collaborators discovered that particle interactions may be based on a multi-faceted geometric shape, the ‘amplituhedron.' This looks like a metaphorical intricate, multifaceted ‘jewel’ in higher dimensions, so much so that these scientists could be referred to as the ‘Jewel Scientists.' Their findings significantly simplify multidimensional math, and change ideas about space an
