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.

Everything known to "MAN" today is nothing more than a particle appearing
in a atom in a piece of dust on a jacket in someones closet in some other
realm. And so one and so on etc. etc. etc. And as we now know the life span
of any visible, not to mention invisible, particle can be extremly short
lived as we conceive time today. That said; It doesn't mean it was very
short in a different realm.

It's been my understanding that physicist were people that though outside
the box. If you only utilize acceptable physics; Your still in a box. Which
means no one else can understand you until years after your dead. When new
discoveries are made and you are added to the history books.

'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.

The difference between string theory and religion is that ST has a strong
framework of maths and physcis to back it up.
It was a hypothesis made from mathematical modelling and not just a guess,
or an emotional response to being ignorant.
It might even be wrong --but it is not an article of faith.

Im not religious or anything but this 11 dimensional "arena" theory I find
is really hard to think of as convincing... Its not convincing at all, why
would there be 11 and not for example 10 or 12, why would you believe there
is a hyperspace? What motivates you to come to that conclusion?

Physicist use physics as they understand it to today; It is different than
yesterdays physics and it will change again tomorrow. To say there is only
eleven dimensions is rather a pompous statement. Physicist haven't always
known there was eleven, they have only recently concluded it. It is
possible, there could be infinite number of dimensions. Because something
doesn't fit known acceptable physics doesn't mean it doesn't exist. I wish
everyone would stop using the concept of time; it sways any argument
because "Time" no matter what value one puts on it; Does not exist, except
in our realm.

Perhaps gravity is the 4th dimension, colors are the 5th-D, sound is the
6th-D and your soul is the 7th-D...lol. At least I would know that it exist
somehow with matter and not out in the middle of know where, like a
fairytale out of a book.

Is a "Dimension" a Place, Thing, or something Visual or Mental? If I was
blind, what would a round object feel like to me in any dimension (other
than 2-D and 3-D) in contrast to visual? Hint: Don't ever take an one-eye
person to a 3-D theater.

"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."

Honestly folks, unless your mathematic and physics background goes as far
as string theory, which most individuals do not, it would be pointless for
him to provide "proof". In the earlier times of our scientific exploration
I'm sure someone said "radioactivity, nonsense", simply because it isn't
visible to the naked eye but when people start getting turned to dust from
atomic bombs, suddenly there is a flood of believers. I'm just saying,
before you can refute one of the greatest minds of our time, be prepared to
supply a hypothesis of your own, one of which withstands the mathematical
criteria which we have in place as well as the scrutiny of the scientific
community. I thought he did well "dumbing it down" for those who don't
understand string theory in a matter of minutes.

My question is do dimensions become unstable and collapse back to 11, or is
the mathematical system used to devise the theory breaking down?

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."

Accept they forget to tell you that we come from the 14th dimension,
destroyed down to the third.
Proof: Cross your eyes & you have one focus point (you) with two visual
perspectives. We also would have had to come from an origin able to sustain
more life than death.
I think they've destroyed us from the 14th dimension for scientists to skip
forward to the 24th dimension by splitting the atom or nucleus while
sustaining life. It would be quicker this way to skip to the 24th because
it's always easier to destroy & skip/cheat forward than to evolve naturally.
Every 10 dimensions is created through a big bang. When it all is engulfed
in a black hole and reaches absolute-0 the atoms must duplicate themselves
creating the big bang effect.
We come from the 14th as spiders come from the 34th dimension.
