ohwilleke said:I'm not endorsing Heim theory, which is described here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heim_theory
The method of extending Heim Theory to higher dimensions results in a theory which describes the physical world in terms of an increasing number of dimensions. These extra dimensions (which are auxillary to length, width, height, and time) are often liberally associated with notions such as "consciousness", "spirit", "thought", and the vedic sciences. This is probably due to Heim's interest later in his life to provide a framework for such perceptions and experiences.

Did you see the careful account of the history of that warning? It did not imply "crank" but rather unbalanced (pro) presentation. And it orgininally was placed on an earlier iteration of the discussion. When the new discussion was posted the warning was just copied. There are certainly some unsound things being asserted their, but it does look worth investigation. 'Course, I think Tony Smith's Voudou Phsics is worth investigation too.
