Queen Mary University of London professor of mathematics and astronomy Bernard Carr believes that there are unfathomable dimensions that are linked to our consciousness.
Albert Einsteiin theorised that there are four-dimensions, although many physicists believe that there could be as many as 11, although we can only perceive three.
However, Professor Carr believes that there is one more dimension that our consciousness interacts with.
He adds that of the dimensions he envisages, there is a hierarchical structure – and we are at the bottom.
Our consciousness can interact with other dimensions
Scientists are still unsure what exactly consciousness is In a conference abstract, Mr Carr wrote: “The model resolves well-known philosophical problems concerning the relationship between matter and mind, elucidates the nature of time, and provides an ontological framework for the interpretation of phenomena such as apparitions, OBEs [out-of-body experiences], NDEs [near-death-experiences], and dreams.”
In a talk at the Euro-PA conference, Mr Carr explained that essentially, if it is thought about, it exists.
There could be more than 11 dimensions
He said: “An essential feature is that it must involve consciousness, since this underlies all psychic experiences. This already places it at loggerheads with those physicists (the majority) who claim that we are close to a ‘Theory Of Everything’, since such theories make no reference to consciousness.
“Another feature of the new paradigm is that it must involve some kind of higher dimensional reality structure.
Mr Carr believes the consciousness interacts with other dimensions
“Since the only non-physical entities in the Universe of which we have any experience are mental ones, and since the existence of paranormal phenomena suggests that mental entities have to exist in some sort of space.”
He continued: “This has profound consequences for physics, psychology, parapsychology and philosophy.”
