You can’t really enter into “another dimension” as science fiction would have
you believe. Instead, dimensions are how we experience the world. But some
aspects actually suggest to one expert, not one but two dimensions of
time. If it were true, the theory could actually heal the most glaring rift in physics—between quantum
mechanics and general relativity.

That’s according to Itzhak Bars of the University of Southern California,
Los Angeles. The normal three dimensions include up-down, left-right,
forward-back, and space-time. In Bars’s theory, time isn’t linear, but a 2D plane in curvature interwoven throughout these
dimensions and more.

Dr. Bars has been crafting “two-time physics” for over a decade now. It
all started when he began questioning the role time plays in relation to
gravity and other forces. Though the idea of more dimensions sounds bizarre,
more and more physicists are considering the idea, because it could allow for
the coveted unified theory of physics or "theory of everything" to take shape. This would
bring together all the fundamental forces of the universe into one clean,
mathematical equation.

Two dimensions of time would make time travel possible. Instead of being
linear, at some point time loops back on itself. In this way, you could
travel back or forward in time. It also raises t3he specter of the “grandfather
paradox.” This is killing your maternal grandfather, accidentally, before your
mother is born, negating your own birth. So if there are all these extra
dimensions, how come we don’t experience them? In two-time theory, they’re so
infinitesimally small, we can’t see them. In this view, we move through these
tiny, balled-up dimensions all of the time, but never notice them.

If we were to fashion technology on the subatomic level, we might be able
to detect these additional dimensions, Bars claims. Another aspect, the
electrical charges associated with certain particles may in fact exist, due to
their interaction with these other dimensions of space.

M-theory, first posited in 1995, has turned physics on its head.
According to celebrity physicist Dr. Michio Kaku, this is a superstring theory, the only
one which can heal the puzzling gulf now inhabiting physics. M-theory contains
10 dimensions of space and one of time, all told.

M-theory stands for “membrane theory.” Some call it the “mother of all
theories.” This is a unified theory where the universe is made up of different
membranes. With string theory, quarks—the tiniest particles in the universe,
are actually made up of vibrating strings of energy. Each vibrates at a
certain pitch, much like the strings on a harp.

Each vibration corresponds to a certain particle, a proton, an electron,
and so forth. They also account for the four natural forces of the universe:
gravity, electromagnetism, and the stronger and weaker nuclear forces. There
are five possible string theories, and the m-theory fits them all together.

Previous to this, physicists were working with a theory of super-gravity.
In this model, the universe operates not as a series of strings but of
membranes or “branes.” Mm…branes. M-theory adopted this as well. Today, we
think of all of these as different aspects of a single framework, the
superstructure of the universe. Basically, m-theory states that string and
super-gravity theory can fit together mathematically.

Overall, the details of the m-theory remain blurred. “Nobody has yet told
us what the fundamental form of m-theory is,” Bars said. A smattering of clues
is all that he and colleagues have to go on. The work of current and future
physicists is likely to elucidate more. It was m-theory that got Bars thinking
about an extra dimension of time. With his two dimensions of time and the 10
dimensions already in m-theory, that would mean that we inhabit a 13 dimension
universe.

In two-time theory, the four dimensions we are familiar with are just a
“shadow” of the six we actually encounter. If this proves true, all of physics
will need to be reexamined. Heisenberg’s principle states that you can
measure a particle for momentum or position, but not both simultaneously. Why
has been a mystery? Perhaps they’re at different times.

According to Bars, the position and momentum behind a particle are
indistinguishable in any particular instant.1 By interchanging momentum
for the position, the physics remains the same. Look at a wooden box. Whether
you look at its right or left side, it’s symmetrical. Here, the same type of
symmetry holds true.

To figure out velocity, we divide the distance by time. But if we can
swap position and momentum interchangeably that means that each may be given
its own unique dimension of time. In this way, the universe may be hiding an
extra dimension of time from us.

Bars insists that the two-time theory is more than just a mathematical
sleight of hand. He told the *New Scientist*, "These extra
dimensions are out there, as real as the three dimensions of space and one of
time we experience directly."2 If proven true, it may even help us
find out why, after an exhaustive search, we have failed to find axions—the
supposed building blocks of dark matter. Bars believes experiments at CERN's
Large Hadron Collider (LHC) near Geneva, Switzerland, may ultimately prove his
theory correct.

Would this give greater insight into how to arrive at the Omega point from the Alpha beginning of evolution.
