a theory for a FIFTH dimension..... All this talk about dimensions I am sure has bored a number of you, although here is another theory! (If it has been thought of before, I apologise!) Bearing in mind 'time' is established as the 4th dimension, it occured to me that there must in turn be a 5th dimension - one that seemed so blindingly obvious. So I thought to myself, the 5th dimension may actually be THE MATTER ITSELF! Here is my arguement: Matter makes up all that is everything. Without it,the other dimensions could not exist. 'Height','Depth','Length' and 'Time' must all occur within something. That 'something', as far as I can understand, has got to be the 'Matter' itself. Is this absurd? Yes, although if time is a possible dimension,then one must not overlook the possibility of matter being a true dimension in itself! Just as 'Time' may be a dimension, as objects cannot exist if they werent there for a certain amount of time. Well - just as an object must exist for a certain amount of time - the matter that makes up the object in the first place must exist within something! That something being 'Matter' hence, the 5th Dimension. What do you think? NOTE - I am a mere babe-in-arms of 16 years old, so this may be one of the reasons why my theory is so poor!
