So maybe mass determines the tightness of the spiral dimensions, which in turn determines whether the spiral manifests as an angular dimension (or imaginary, or lateral dimension) or whether the spiral manifests as a radial dimension (spatial, directly observable). The higher the mass, the tighter the spiral and the more apparent gravitation between two objects. Perhaps the angular dimensions have enormous mass-energy bound up in them.

Maybe they were all angular dimensions at one time. If 14 billion years ago, something caused one of the angular dimensions to "unfurl" into a non-circular logarithmic spiral, then space-time would "inflate" and perhaps enough energy would be released to cause a shower of around 10^80 particles, which would be dragged along with the expansion of space - spawning our visible universe!

Cool idea.

Here is an image of the spiral tracks created by subatomic particles in a high-energy particle accelerator cloud chamber.

  • Curved Space in Polar CoordinatesEx-News Junkie, Wed Aug 2 5:57pm
    If there is only one spatial dimension, how can it lead to the curved space of general relativity? Well, if the other dimensions are angular (circular), then instead of being linear, maybe all the... more

            More thoughts on how the universe is easier to understand if it is represented using polar coordinates, where there is only one dimension of space, and therefore space can only be curved if it is a... more

              What if everything in the cosmos is a string? 3-dimensional space could be an illusion... It could be two angular dimensions and one radial dimension, i.e. spherical coodinates. The angular... more

                A string that vibrates is acting like a spring. Springs store energy. Hooke's Law: E = k . x^2 ... So when a particle travels through space it is transferring energy in & out of the spring, to & from ... more
