    ..From X. Chen, with dimensions 5 and 6 being timelike and constituting the hidden variables. http://www.arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/0501034.

    This is not a "TD" type of theory, and Chen has the theoretical chops to have been an arxiv contributer for years. I know there has been interest in multiple times here, and this is a pretty interesting example.

    I'm suprised there haven't been any replys about this paper. I'd like to know what others think. Thanks for the link sA.

    Regards

    You might try posting a thread about it on sci.physics.research, there'd probably be more people with the expertise to evaluate it there.

    does that mean you can answer my question?

    I have a copy of your paper, but could you explain it in simple terms, for someone like me, in terms of a cloud for example.

    Regards

    The string theory thread would also seem an appropriate place to post the original message.

    Would you have to have strings in this case? If I understand it, there are only 3 spatial dimensions. And 3 time dimensions.

    I just thought that because some Kaluza-Klein ideas and the idea of extra dimensions have been invoked within string theory, some people who look primarily at the string theory thread within this website might be able to comment on the original topic. Posting in the string area would just be a way of reaching a potential audience. That's all. I don't know if "hidden variables theory" requires strings.

    I am going to post in the relativity forum. Reason: I have doubts about some of his derivations and I would like an expert on GR tech to look at it.

    I look forward to following your thread. I'm no math whiz, but I'd like to learn if there is any merit to his ideas.

    Thanks
