Michio Kaku: The Multiverse Has 11 Dimensions

The physicist explains why other universes in the mulitverse could have many more dimensions—and could comprise Einstein's "Mind of God."

Question: Are there only three dimensions in other universes or could there be more? (Submitted by Andre Lapiere)Michio Kaku:  Andre, we believe, though we cannot yet prove, that our multiverse of universes is 11-dimensional. So think of this 11-dimensional arena and in this arena there are bubbles, bubbles that float and the skin of the bubble represents an entire universe, so we're like flies trapped on fly paper.  We're on the skin of a bubble.  It's a three dimensional bubble.  The three dimensional bubble is expanding and that is called the Big Bang theory and sometimes these bubbles can bump into each other, sometimes they can split apart and that we think is the Big Bang. So we even have a theory of the Big Bang itself.  Now you ask a question what about the dimensions of each bubble.  Well in string theory—which is what I do for a living; that's my day job—In string theory we can have bubbles of different dimensions.  The highest dimension is 11.  You cannot go beyond 11 because universes become unstable beyond 11.  If I write down the theory of a 13-, 15-dimensional universe it's unstable and it collapses down to an 11-dimensional universe. But within 11 dimensions you can have bubbles that are 3 dimensional, 4-dimensional, 5-dimensional.  These are membranes, so for short we call them brains. So these brains can exist in different dimensions and let's say P represents the dimension of each bubble, so we call them p-brains.  So a p-brain is a universe in different dimensions floating in a much larger arena, and this larger arena is the hyperspace that I talked about originally. 
Also remember that each bubble vibrates, and each bubble vibrating creates music.  The music of these membranes is the subatomic particles.  Each subatomic particle represents a note on a vibrating string or vibrating membranes. So, believe it or not, we now have a candidate for the "Mind of God" that Albert Einstein wrote about for the last 30 years of his life.  The "Mind of God" in this picture would be cosmic music resonating throughout 11-dimensional hyperspace.

Author GregTom2 (21 day)
This is so far from the scientifical method that it makes me feel like we
fell back to the time of aristotle.
I could just as well say that "the nature of the universe is that there's 4
elements and it resonates over billions of years, going from total order to
perfect entropy and back again, with earth in the center, water over it,
air over it and fire in the heavens, and then it all merging together over
the ages allowing life until it becomes apocalypic and all life disapears
in this chaotic new cosmos where everything is mixed, and then it separates
again, blablablabla..." And act like it's based on some mathematical series
I wrote which don't actually have much connection to what I'm saying. Then
I just have to make sure that it's not verifiable, not falsifiable and
contaminate great minds of my century with this belief.
Real science is falsifiable. You need to be able to make claims and
prediction that can be experimentally verifiable. This is just middle
ageous elucubrations and pseudoscience.

Author TheGreatSeraphim (6 months)
'We believe there are 11 dimensions but more than 11 is impossible' - 'We
can't prove any of this.'

Mkay so how are more than 11 impossible if you don't even know for sure if
you can't prove there are more than 3. And don't say time is a dimension or
I'll say pudding can be a dimension too. Time is a measurement of matter
moving from one point to another in 3 dimensions not a dimension itself.
Because if time is a dimension so is inertia.

When he was explaining on how there are other universes resonating at a
different dimensions say "7th" for the bases of the fundamental laws of
that universe would it be stable? I'm not really sure, how does a human
picture that? We live in a 3rd dimensional existence yes but does that not
mean that the higher ones are still effecting lower dimensional fundamental
laws through indirect means? I always thought that if there was to exist a
stable Omniverse all the other lower states of dimension would have some
sort of order but nope, I guess chaos and unpredictability is the only
constant.

is a hyperspace? What motivates you to come to that conclusion?

We can't even see the end of our own universe how the fuck can you say
there are more? And I am not one to believe in the dimensions theory, we
say imagine an 2D organism blah blah blah but show me a natural 2D space
with a real 2D organism living inside of it. I have never looked at an
object and said to myself "Yup that's definitely a 2D being right there.
Even a piece of paper has 3 dimensions. I think dimensions should be called
directions and accept that we there is only 1 spatial dimension that has 3
directions. This may be my scientific ignorance or complete genius but
these crazy claims that other universes exists and that they has
specifically 11 dimensions when back to my original point, we don't know
the end to our own. I don't know being as factual as possible and as
unbiased by shit like religion I still cannot accept this shit.

"Because as the wavefronts come at right angles from a distance radius
everything is a ratio between opposite vectors oscillating in periodic or
harmonic motion contracting and expanding a locational 4pi spherical inward
absorption t=0 and now outward emission of photon oscillations, or
vibrating 2pi quantized spherical wavefronts of electromagnetic radiation
at right angles, forming resonance antimatter matter annihilation, forming
positive and negative electric charge and electromagnetic interference
fields as time unfolds C2 in three dimensions.. . .

The greater the angle of space the greater the curvature of spacetime the
stronger the electromagnetic field at that One point of space and at that
One moment of time... . .

In quantum computing the "two energy states" of a Cubit, can be such things
as photons, trapped ions, atoms, electrons, and nuclear spins.. . .

By manipulating this process, a physicist shines a 2pi pulse on a Cubit
absorbing energy and emitting C2 - their output was the negation of their
input: 0 goes to 1,1 to 0.. . .the start of a Fibonacci sequence.. . .

The golden ratio between opposite vectors!!

Therefore the parallel universes of Hugh Everett are here and there placed
at right angles.. . .Just like he said they would be.. . .Only difference
is they are individual 3D Wave Centres within the one external universe as
the wavefronts come. . ..E2=mc2c4+p2c2 - exploding into this enormous
collage that the One had just experienced then as the now t=0."

Therefore E2 is the multiverses at right angles from all other matter, from
an infinite amount of individual 3D centred ref-frames that make up the One
external universe as the wavefronts come at right angles. .
..forming a potential infinity of future possibilities at every degree and
angle of space and at every moment of time."

Mr. Kaku.
Please don't sell unproven hypothesis as facts, because you are ruining the
image of science!!!!!!!
Example:
"Over the past few days, the media has cried out the recent proclamation
from Stephen Hawking that black holes, a mystery of both science and
science fiction, do not exist.
Such statements send social media into conniptions, and comments quickly
degenerate into satirical discussions of how you should never believe
anything scientists say, as they just make it up anyway."
