The Four Dimensions of Time

Hello again Professor Lloyd,

Laying in bed this morning I was trying to get a better grasp on the dimensions of time and what they would be. I present the following;

0 - The now point

1 - X plane - the conventional timeline as we know it

2 - Y plane (the Barry Allen/Quicksilver plane) - This is where I think quantum entanglement maybe occurring. My theory on this is that "things" can only move at a certain pace. So if direction shifts off the X plane across the Y plane conventional time seems to slow down. If one were to halt moving along the X plane and say take a 90 degree turn and only move along the Y plane special (*typo, spatial) dimensional progression would cease and it would appear as if time stood still, as in this scene from X-Men . Logically things progress at the rate they do in conventional time and the only way for Quicksilver to observe things at such a slow rate is to move across the Y plane of time. So in essence he's not moving fast (and not combusting), he's simply moving across the Y plane of time. I think the electrons mentioned in the last e-mail are also traveling along the time Y plane.

3 - Z plane (the multiverse) - I'm guessing you're familiar with the multiverse so I don't need to explain that. But it seems logical to me that this would be the explanation of the multiverse.

Once again please let me know your thoughts. Have a Merry Christmas ---Zach

An open letter to Professor Seth Llyod MIT

Here's an e-mail I'll be sending to Professor Seth Llyod, MIT after posting this on my site of random notes.

Hi Professor Lloyd,

I listen to Big Picture Science on podcast while traveling the vast expanses of Alaska. I've heard you on there a couple/few times. Last night while out climbing around on icebergs and waiting to photograph the Northern Lights I was listening to an old one called "Quantum: Why We Want `Em". I came up with a theory but I'm just a curious guy out in the remotes of Alaska. I don't know what the current thoughts out there are, if this is an established theory already. But I came up with this reasoning, forgive me if any or all of this is obvious, or just plain stupid.

With the electron taking "an infinite number of paths."

A bit ago I was listening to another Big Picture Science about time and time travel. I got the lightbulb that how clear it is that we only exist in "Now." Even in saying "now" you're dealing with future, present, and past. While it may seem like the whole time used saying "now" means now, it's really looking at a moment of time, and not actual now. Now is a point, not a moment or span of points. Our ability to control direction in time is 0 dimensional? It's simply a point. It's a point in which we have no power to move through and it spans nothing.

We understand time as a line. So we have a one dimensional understanding of time. We can comprehend the there is a past and future, that the now point travels along that x time axis.

My theory is maybe time is also two or three dimensional. But just as a entity on a two dimensional plane would have no concept of the z axis, neither are we aware of the y or z axis for time?

With the electron taking an infinite number of paths and it not being there until we look, is possibly because the electron is traveling on the y or z axis of time and it isn't until we look that we are seeing it cross our x time axis... Does that make sense? I'm thinking just as there's spatial dimension, possibly there is time dimension, but time itself is multidimensional in its own. So while we live are conscious of the third spatial dimension, we are only conscious of the first time dimension...

I'm well out of my field here, but would appreciate feedback from someone who actually knows this stuff. Thanks ---Zach
