Is that about right ?

In summary: The only way to know for sure would be to perform the experiment.In summary, two bubbles of different dimensions touch and create a new dimension.

Mr Peanut said:Say I have two 5-dimensional bubbles...in 5-dimensional space...they meet at a 3-dimensional "point."

At first glance, just as two circles meet at an X,Y point (two-dimensional), and two spheres meet at a three-dimensional X,Y,Z point, it seems two 5-dimensional 'bubbles' or any 5-dimensional objects must require a 5-dimensional coordinate to specify a point of intersection.

Perhaps...

The notion of a point is more often an undefined entity in geometry, an axiomatic primitive that has no meaning beyond the intuitive. Any rigorous definition results in a circular arguments.

While a point may be designated with any number of dimensions depending on the space, it alway has a magnitude of zero in every direction. A point on a line and a point on a plane could be seen as equivalent objects.

Back to bubbles. The four diminsenional space arises from the "point." An observer in the 4-D hyperplane at some later time would remark; "the universe spontaneously arose from nothingness."

A point has no dimensions.Mr Peanut said:Say I have two 5-dimensional bubbles moving towards one another in 5-dimensional space. When they touch, at the monent they touch, they meet at a 3-dimensional "point."

The way you stated this question was too vague for me to answer what the dimensionality of the intersection would be. However, how two such bubbles interact when they meet depends entirely upon the physics of whatever they are made of.Mr Peanut said:As they join, the 4-dimensional hyperplane created their by common boundary immediately inflates from that point and expands.

I find this concept intriguing and it aligns with current theories about the origins of the universe. The idea of 5-dimensional bubbles colliding and expanding can be seen as a possible explanation for the Big Bang, where the universe is believed to have started from a single point and rapidly expanded. The concept of higher dimensions is a fascinating area of study and could potentially provide insights into the nature of our universe. However, it is important to note that this is still a theoretical concept and more research and evidence is needed to fully understand and support it.

The Big Bang Theory is a scientific explanation for the origin and evolution of the universe. It proposes that the universe began as a singular point of infinite density and temperature, known as a singularity, and has been expanding and cooling ever since.

In some theoretical models, the universe is believed to have more than the three dimensions (length, width, and height) that we experience. The collision and expansion of 5-dimensional bubbles could help explain the rapid expansion of the universe during the early stages of the Big Bang.

Scientists study the Big Bang Theory through observations of the universe, such as the cosmic microwave background radiation, the distribution of galaxies, and the abundance of elements. They also use mathematical models and simulations to understand the processes that occurred during the early stages of the universe.

There are several pieces of evidence that support the Big Bang Theory, including the expansion of the universe, the abundance of light elements, and the cosmic microwave background radiation. Additionally, the observations of distant galaxies and the redshift of their light also support this theory.

The Big Bang Theory is one of the most widely accepted explanations for the origin of the universe. It is compatible with other theories, such as inflation theory and the cyclic model, which suggest different mechanisms for the rapid expansion of the universe. However, the Big Bang Theory remains the most well-supported and studied theory of the universe's origin.
