“4D” is shorthand for the fourth dimension; “5D” is the fifth dimension; if you haven’t heard about this concept, I’ll do my best to begin an explanation. In my upcoming book, I talk about the 5D reality that we’re already moving into. Although most of us are firmly rooted in the “3D” (three dimensional) world of physicality and most everyone has had some sense of the 4D, maybe that would be as good a place to start.
The fourth dimension is basically the time/space continuum, but even that may be a little too nebulous. One might conceptualize it as that encompassing mind or thought; some conjecture that this is the human mind’s first glimpses of cosmic consciousness. As simply as possible, you might think of it as any prayer or intention that projects your consciousness higher.
The PBS series, NOVA, in an episode entitled, “Imagining Other Dimensions” [http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/physics/imagining-other-dimensions.html] first aired 10/28/2003, struggled to describe what it might be like for someone to imagine this concept. While a flat hologram, such as might be on your credit card, is the 2D projecting into 3D, making that next leap into the 4D is not as easy to illustrate. Theoretical physicists, such as Dejan Stojkovic of the University at Buffalo [http://www.buffalo.edu/news/12493], are already saying “a fourth dimension may have already opened at large, cosmological scales.” This is based on the expansion of the universe, though even these great thinkers don’t know why.
In their book, “Transcending the Speed of Light: Consciousness, Quantum Physics, and the Fifth Dimension”, PhDs Marc Seifer and Stanley Krippner begin by writing that a “study of the new scientific understanding of consciousness and the mind as a fifth dimension of reality.” Many writers, mystics and philosophers have been discussing the 5D for some time now, but the best explanation I have found came from the late Vera Dorothea Stanley Alder (29 October 1898 – 26 May 1984). A reviewer of her book, The Fifth Dimension [http://www.amazon.com/Fifth-Dimension-Vera-Stanley-Alder/dp/1578631653], which was published posthumously in 1997, wrote this:
She explains the First Dimension as a line, the Second Dimension as a square, polygon, etc, the Third Dimension as objects and materialism, the Fourth Dimension as radiations flowing in all directions and interacting objects and materialism, the Fourth Dimension as radiations flowing in all directions and interacting with one another. Also included in this dimension are the radiations of Wisdom and Love. Finally in the Fifth Dimension she explains to be the opposite of the Fourth Dimension, where instead of radiations flowing in every direction we have inter-penetration, where worlds can dwell one within the other.
I’ll be writing more about the 5D in future posts; stay tuned, and you’re welcome to ask questions!
