11-D composite spacetime

  1. Feb 17, 2005 #1
    Could the 7 compactified intradimensions and 4 exploded extradimensions of superstring theory alternately arise from a composite network of zero dimensional points, one dimensional strings, two dimensional branes, three dimensional volumes, four dimensional spaces, and an interrelative time of one dimension, such that: 0+1+2+3+4+1=11?

    The 0,1,2,3,4 and |-1| components can replicate the dimensionality of strings or branes. By "interrelative" I mean that time, along with a 3-dimensional spatial geometry, can share the extradimensions as a continuous spacetime, whereas four dimensional spaces are restricted to compactification by both their Euclidean nature and maximal component 4-dimensionality. Each unit decrease in dimension would constitute a projection from the next higher component space. The lower compactified geometries would be projections both with and without time's arrow.
