Theoretical Physics in the end is simply a set of numbers (mass, impulse, energy etc.) related to another set through a series of mathematical operations. Has it ever been tried to just set all the physical quantities of elementary particles in an n-dimensional space where each dimension is the axis of a given quantity and just follow the path of the point and points in this space as they interact ? For example a particle may have n quantities (x,y,z,t,mass,spin,energy,impulse,size of particle, etc.) so you set each dimension of the space to correspond to each quantity, so aside from the typical 4 dimensions of space-time you would have other dimensions corresponding to the energy, another to the mass, another to the velocity, another to spin etc. You would end up with an n-dimensional space where the particle would simply be the path of the point in this space. Could this simplify theoretical physics ? Is this result known ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The idea of putting every physical quantity an elementary particle can have on a different axis of an n-dimensional coordinate system may really allow some new research and insight.
