The possibility of "Perception" being a dimension? Is it possible that perception its self could be a dimension? Now think deeper, not personal perception, but instead the idea of perception in general. Because quiet simply, there are lots of things that exist that we cannot perceive. Just as animals can perceive things we cannot. (and as far as perception goes, im not talking about interpreting what you see, im talking about actual perception, what you can physically see and feel to be real. That which is governed by universal principles and law - because there has to be a vast array of things we cannot even pick up on, or know to be true, but are very real -- but I guess from that the question of dreaming could very well come into play. Ever wonder how sometimes in your dreams you could tell the future? or even lets question the future...is time just a like a river...and its a long constant flow from end to end. For example, My dad had a dream that his dead grandmother told him numbers...so when my dad woke up from the dream he wanted to play the lottery, only one problem. one number was missing. So he didnt play. Then the lottery results came in..and it was the same numbers in the same order, and the number that was missing was 0...which was the last number - or lack of a number. But dreaming could be an entirely different subject/topic but i bet its related) If you look at time, time is a dimension. How does perception twist into this? Quiet simply. A lifetime for a fly is very short lasting compared to a humans life time, from our point of view. But to that fly, their lifetime....feels long - it has too. You cannot simply be born, and then die 20 days later, and be able to say that was a "long" life. Just like with cat years, what exactly explains that 1 year for us is 7 to them? Or is that just ******** ? In their minds...their life could feel much more longer, but out of our perspective its short. I just want to figure out if perception could be a possible dimension. Now im sure that idea would clash with other ideas...but what if we were "missing" a lot of information inbetween to connect the ideas together in a way which would make sense. edit: or what about the idea that life is just a matter of perception governed by physical laws?
