LHC and probability waves

  1. Jan 23, 2009 #1
    If the LHC somehow observes the 4 th spatial dimension, does it mean we are on the verge of colapsing a probability wave and therefore determining the attributes of entire new dimension ?

    Hi Pjpic! :smile:
    mmm … i don't think anyone understands what collapsing the wave is, even in three dimensions. :blushing:

    If there are extra spatial dimensions they most likely will not be observable, perhaps ever, who knows?

    I don't think the 4th dimension is discreet from the other 3, thus it is impossible to view time without space, and space without time. It is most likely just a neat conceptual way of explaining the tendency of natural laws to evolve over a period t, in a framework that mimics reality as closely as possible.
