    13? 22? maybe just one? Based on string theory...there might be more than a couple...what do you think? (I know this is OLD news...nevertheless....interesting....)

    jokes about 115 not welcome...

    Current theory says 11. If you're talking about alternate universes, that's most likely infinite

    Please, please, please, PLEASE. Google "ellipsis grammar" and review a few of the results. Grammatically correct presentation of your thoughts would go a long ways towards making your posts appear coherent.

    That being said, I don't care how many dimensions there are. I've read a little superstring theory, seen all sorts of numbers, but I'm gonna reserve my concern for the four that I can deal with. Basically, the number of dimensions falls into the multiple categories of "things that don't affect me," "things that I can't truly determine one way or the other," and finally, "things beyond my ability to truly grasp without a level of effort I'm not willing to expend."

    I don't know. But if we ever open a portal to other dimensions, I hope I can find one where you don't post stupid crap like this all the time.

    Like previously stated, I only care about the supposed three dimensions of space and one dimension of time I use. Or whatever.

    I don't really think you HAVE done your fair share of reading.

    I think you have browsed enough conspiracy theory websites that you don't know how to separate fact from fiction. You don't know how to tell what is sensible and what is not.

    I don't think anything of what you posted is based on a "fair share of reading." I think it's based on the incoherent ramblings of someone who uses drugs and alcohol and then peruses the latest spin doctor theories and picks whatever makes the most sense.


    But that just might be me.

    Time and Space.

    That's all you need.

    However if you're talking about parallel dimensions, there's one dimension for every decision or action ever taken, by any being or object, since the creation of the universe. I think that gives us 176... Can't be sure though.

    Three. Many consider time to be the fourth demension.. but not me. Time imo is non existent. Time is simply a man made concept to measure movement.

    Denension is the measure of space, and time is the measure of movement.

    Just like (x,y,z) or (r,theta,z) or (r,theta,phi) etc is a man made concept to measure distance and location.

    With that said there are ELVENTY BILLION DIMENSIONS... in my ass.

    Really there's however many seem appropriate at the time.

    I can't believe I'm contributing seriously to an eyeballkid thread, but...

    What about the whole relativity thing? If the progression of time alters as a factor of velocity, then isn't it reasonable to assume that time does actually exist?

    I think the emphasis should be on 'fair.' A "professional drunk's" fair share of reading might be a handful of blogs, the Onion, and those charts on the front of USA Today.

    What is a professional drunk, anyways? Is that like one of those people that always wants to tell you exactly how much and what they had to drink the night before?

    I think if you can remember precisely what you drank, then you weren't really trying. And that's not very professional.
