Hi, I am an amateur fascinated by quantum physics and... trying to understand it. Sorry if my question is too radiculous. I read some time ago (http://www.dailygalaxy.com/my_weblo...-universe-had-10-dimernsions-at-big-bang.html) that there might have been 9-dimensions plus time at the Big Bang. The article says some of them expanded more than the others. Could it be the other way around? Could some of them 'have collapsed'? Could Big Bang then be a 'collapse' of some dimensions and the space/matter/energy would have been pushed out so the other dimensions would expand? Could then this have been the case with inflation phase and contemporary accelaration of the expansion of the universe? We would be in 4D (plus time) universe changing to 3D? Could that be the 'dark energy' responsible for the expansion of the universe? Again I'm sorry if this is an absurd question but I'm kind of entry-level.
