Folded Space

Avatar Author: Joey Roskey I am me. Read Bio

An ant crawls along the surface of a peice of paper. He only knows of the one dimension he is crawling on. Unaware that if he continues on, he will crawl around the edge onto another dimension of the same space. He continues on, and will eventually get there.
We too are crawling, through a 3 dimensional world, unaware that someday we will turn that corner, crawl around that edge, and become aware of another dimension.
What if this piece of paper was folded? Or folded many times over.
How many dimensions are possible? Or more importantly, comprehendable?
Folded fabric weaves complex structures.
What would restrain how many folds it had?
It size?
It is infinite.
Are Heaven and Hell hiding around these corners?
People Hope so. I know so.
One day we will all crawl around that edge and find out the truth.

    this reminds me of A Wrinkle in Time
    that’s an interesting idea, that maybe Heaven and Hell are in something like a different dimension. wow. I never thought of that.
    awesome job

    This also reminded me of A Wrinkle in Time, when Mrs. Which explains space/time to Meg, using an ant on a string. I like.

Look out there. Do you see that tiny blue speck? Can you even tell it apart from the other bright points of light surrounding it? How big you...
