Z-Theory; An Intellectual Ride Through Hyperspace
Since the quest, the unification of physics to provide a coherent and compelling theory that will be able to explain the whole universe and the laws governing it, many attempts were made to unify the fundamental forces of nature. All the proposals are either partially or wholly flawed. This theory even eluded Einstein during the last decades of his scientific Odyssey. Hence it remained a central challenge of theoretical physics. It is well-known that physicists even call it the greatest triumph of human intellect as it could alter all the preconceived notions about nature and its nature. Stephen Hawking calls it a crowning achievement through which we will be able to read the mind of God. With the advancement in theoretical physics scientific community have seen various proposals like klauza-klein theory, supergravity theory, string theory and ultimately the superstring theory etc. to unify the fundamental forces of nature into one compact, unified theory which can explain them all but this proved more ticklish then it was expected to be. Succinctly all the attempts in this 3-d universe are in vain leaving behind the big and infinite question marks. These constraints are not, but merely from this limited 3-d space or even extending a one-time dimension is of no use. Because even these 4 dimensions don’t have enough room to accommodate all the fundamental forces though it can accommodate energy and mass in the form of Einstein’s energy equivalence, perhaps the most celebrated of all scientific equations only due to addition of one temporary dimension, therefore we must set an intellectual probe to hyperspace. This can be clearly understood as if we only extend only one spatial dimension in our ordinary 3-spatial and one-time dimensional universe the gravity and electromagnetic forces coexist together in the form of vibrations in 5-d hyperspace i,e the unification is probable in hyperspace. Among mathematicians, G B Riemann was the first to state that nature finds its natural home in the geometry of higher dimensions. He was the first to believe that hyperspace may yield a comprehensive understanding of these fundamental forces and eventually pave the way for the unification. The core of the Riemann’s work was that natural laws appear simple when expressed in higher dimensions. Here it should be clearly understood that we can’t visualize the extra dimensions because the experiments done with the newborn babies have shown that we are born with the innate ability and understanding of 3-d space. I,e why the late physicist Heinz Pagels have noted that one feature of our physical world is so obvious that most people are not even puzzled by it; the fact that space is 3-dimensional.Due to this innate nature, our brains and we are firmly embedded with this intuitive concept of 3-dimensional space. A German physicist Helmholtz has even compared the inability to see the higher dimensions with the inability of a blind man to conceive the concept of color. However, the growing realization about the 3-d universe is that it can’t describe the natural laws in their natural and eternal form is increasing tremendously which is even capable of confronting the incomprehensive and unseen nature of hyperspace theory and the scientific commune realizes that higher dimensions have enough room to unify all the known physical forces. Which even compelled the most celebrated genius (Einstein) to admit that nature shows us only the tail of the lion. But I don’t doubt that the lion belongs to it even though he cannot reveal himself at once because of his enormous size. If Einstein is correct, then perhaps these 4 forces are the tail of the lion and the lion itself is the higher dimensional space-time. These ideas and the likes have fueled the hyperspace theory to large heights among physics communities and hence it can be said that hyperspace may tunnel to the unification of physics or it may revolutionize the whole of physics. Adding higher dimensions not merely unifies the fundamental laws of physics but also expresses them in their natural and elegant forms. These laws often find their natural place in higher dimensions as it integrates them which is the central idea behind Einstein’s special theory of relativity. Here it should be noted that hyperspace may even reveal the secrets of creation to explain it; clearly, it can be said that it may resolve the mysteries of space-time singularities which are among the limits of physics to comprehend the universe or probably the answer for baby universes may lie only in hyperspace .the experiments with these baby universes or being the witness of big bang needs energy quadrillion times greater than the energy that can be produced by our largest atom smashers which only hyperspace theory can muster.
It is well known that modern physics is of two principles; the physical and the mathematical one. Therefore from the above perspective, it can be stated that hyperspace may be the physical principle as it provides a possibility of unification purely on geometrical arguments. Another principle is the mathematical one I,e field theories of all known physical forces or the only mathematical language of physics. These equations appear so different from each other that physicists find no way of unifying them in 3 dimensions. The field equations for the interaction of subatomic particles often referred as yang-mills fields and Einstein’s equations of gravity differ so vastly that even the greatest minds have tackled this problem only to fail .but with the introduction of higher dimensions these vastly differed equations intermingle and coexist with themselves like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Therefore it can be said that hyperspace may hold the key to the unification of physics. Among the proposals of unification, the most advanced theory is the superstring theory, which postulates that all the matter consists of tiny vibrating strings, .but surprisingly, this theory has also got the precise number of dimensions I,e it can be only tested in hyperspace (10-dimensions). Also over the past decades, physicists have cataloged and studied hundreds of subatomic particles or they are overwhelmed by the diversity and complexity of these various subatomic particles but superstring theory can easily explain them as mere vibrations in hyperspace .therefore these advancements in physics are approaching to the fact that z-theory is only possible because of hyperspace theory. Here I also admit that hyperspace may not necessarily be the ultimate proposal of Z-theory but the physicists and the current physics speak that laws of nature become simple and elegant when expressed in higher dimensional space-time. Therefore it can be said that hyperspace may defy all those constraints which lie between the current physics and it’s unification by paving a way to Z-theory, not certainly. But the natural laws will certainly find their natural homes.
