I had a strange dream yesterday night. I am not going to talk about the dream here. But when i woke out of it, i had a theory formed about other dimensions that may exist and how we go about travelling through them. In fact I had a blog entry written up right there at 4 am in my mind. Now that its close to 10 am, most of it remains dissolved, forgotten and hazy. I will try to piece them up as much as I can though. Note that this is a wild fantasy and facts and assumptions hence, will not be justified in any form
A living human consists of its body and its soul. As our soul exists inside this body, we can feel ourselves passing through the existing four dimensions. As all of us know, time is linear and we have been going through it in a linear continuous, predictable fashion w.r.t space. This means that we always go through time in a non-erratic, continuous fashion without any jumps in between. The soul and the human body are together in this journey of three dimensions. Henceforth, when I refer to ourselves, I will be referring to our souls rather than the combination of human bodies and souls. . When I mean 4D over here, the 4th dimension mentioned over here is time.
Now that I have made my view of existing points clear, what do we think of the other dimensions that might exist. Just because we in our current form cannot feel or see them, does not mean that they may not exist. The dream I had yesterday night was something regarding this.
Even though our human body can only see and feel only three dimensions, our soul is actually travelling through other dimensions with respect to time. Unlike time and space which are linear though, the 5th dimension (and others > 5) need not necessarily be linear and continuous. There are factors which govern our journey through these dimensions that we in our present form cannot control. Since these dimensions are something which we cannot control, see or feel, we simply fail to recognize its existence. So now, if we cannot acknowledge its existence, how can we be sure that we are travelling through them? And also, WHAT actually travels through them, if it isn’t exactly us.
My another notion over here is that our soul is aware of existence of such dimensions and is travelling through them everyday. There are various factors that governs the travelling of this soul through these dimensions. One of the factors , which I call out here (and there could be many more, some of which are time bound and others undefined/unknown) could be what we call our “karma”. As our karma evolves, our soul traverses through these dimensions (not sure how to describe this travel as there is no space dimension associated with it over here). Again note that over here, since this dimension is not linearly associated with time, the position of us in this dimension in relation to time is not well defined. As per our karma or our actions we do, our soul keeps travelling through this dimension(s) throughout our human life time. This effectively means that our conscious self has no actual control of this dimension since we travelling through this dimension is dictated by our deeds. Also, though our travel through 2-D space is reversible (we can always go back to where we started from ), we cannot travel backwards in time and also we cannot travel backwards in this dimension(s). This is uni directional, non – continuous and discrete.
For a want of a better term, lets term this dimension as a karma dimension (since I mentioned about karma..) Now that I have spoken as to how we travel through this dimension, the question may arise as to what dictates our travel through this dimension and how far we travel. As we do not have control over how we travel through time during the course of our life, we do not have control over how our soul travels through this karma dimension. Be it good karma or bad karma, we do (note that when I mean we, I mean our “souls”) travel through this dimension. Since its not linear and continuous, each karma that we accumulate, transcends us from one “point” to another in this dimension. (it’s a bit complicated. A point is not a 2d point but an accumulation of various dimensions). Our soul keeps moving along in this “direction” (not a 2D direction again.. it’s an atleast 4D+ dimensional non linear direction) and at one point of time (and I mean the actual time here) the soul has to keep moving in the 4D+ dimension in other dimensions but then the 3D interpretation ends there. i.e after travelling in all the dimensions put together, the “space” travel of the human body manifestation of the soul ends and it has to keep moving in other directions(again note that there is no linear association with one dimension with respect to other) which our human body cannot come along. In such cases, the soul ends up leaving the 3D body and continues the further journey in other dimensions in some other form(who knows what?) into the event horizon. We are in this scenario presented to be dead.. since our brains and body in current 3D space have stopped functioning. Our soul though continues its journey in other dimensions.
Now, when does this exactly happen.. IMO, there needs to be some sort of balance achieved in our life , with our karma and some other unrecognized factors when the end comes. For example, using the karma factor alone,
a) Your karma dimension, you have so far travelled sufficiently enough so that the soul has to move into another world. But your time travelled in the 3D dimension is still relatively less. (you are still young)
b) You have travelled a lot in the 3D dimension but your karma dimension still lags.
c) A perfect equilibrium , in which you are old and your soul in the karma dimension is moving to another world.
To keep things short, in the first case, you are possibly designated to die young.. in the second case, you are old, but death still does not come to you, because you still lag behind in the karma dimension and until your soul has travelled sufficiently farther in that dimension, you soul still exists in the 4D world with the body. Such cases, are case when people live well past their old age. It is the final third case wherein when things are in perfect equilibrium, we tend to die at the perfect age, a normal comfortable death.
If you ask the question, as to how to achieve the third case in your life in 4D+ world, I have no answer.
As our soul wanders off into other dimensions , the path that it takes may cause it to interject with the 3D world again(why?) . This is the case wherein rebirth happens and our soul comes into contact again with human bodies. The plain fact that its entering the 3D world does not mean, its travel in the other dimensions has stopped or has been reset to zero. The karma portion of the soul continues its journey over various births. This may explain why people call out “past karma” influences our present lives.
Conclusion: The concept is nothing new or radical. Some people see karma as a divine abstract thing. I have tried to align it to something else and called it as a new dimension. I have not said anything about good karma or bad karma.. Though I am sure it influences how your soul travels through other dimensions and has a say in which “direction” your soul moves and makes it come into contact with a 3D world again
