The quest to simplify
Is there a reason to limit our reality to only a few dimensions?
The reason of sticking to few dimension, I gather, is due to the fact that the our knowledge and experience of natural phenomenon is based on confrontation with a set of logical or analogical models common to our senses and to our measurement practice and tools.
And it is a well-known fact that those models, being essentially linear and continuous, have a specific characteristic: they can "relate" together only a limited amount of variables i.e. our known dimensions.
But the variables in our reality are not just few and limited, the capacity of an individual, (not just man) to make free and creative choices, for instance, can also be considered a variable.
Which generate a natural question: is there anything that prevents the variable related to a "creative individual" be considered a specific dimension?
My answer is that every individual in our reality represent a specific variable and consequently a specific dimension.
A variable/dimension that we recognise as present in our reality and capable of altering it, but if it wasn't for those aspects specifically tied to the physical aspect of the individual, their freedom and creativity would be impossible to be linked or related to the traditional variables/dimensions.
From a scientific point o view, of course, with the prerogative and the limits of the present paradigms, those, utmost infinite variables/dimensions, can only be perceived and registered as an universal random or noise, (quantum reality?)
The key to the problem therefore lays on whether we can adopt and operate with less logic or rigid paradigms, until than, I believe, it is just a matter of choice, and my preference goes, of course, to the multi-dimension one, more complex but with definitely more potential.
