Many new ideas are emerging as a direct or indirect result of the DM search which is forging into territory hitherto unknown to physics. As an invisible force of enormous magnitude, Dark Energy is possibly the very thing holding the Universe together, and as an invisible component thought to be responsible for more than 70% of everything, Dark Matter is possibly the main fabric of all we encounter.
This begs some important questions, not least of which is - are these dark materials part of this dimension at all? The elusive quality they exhibit in remaining beyond the reach of science suggests they are probably not. Connected, yes of course, but part of? No, the evidence is mounting that dark matter and energy exist outside the boundaries of what we have long taken for granted as being 'all there is'. Higgs Boson, newcomer to the scene of particle physics, has been suggested as a multi-faceted compatriot - as a carrier of bosonic force grafting Dark Matter to 'ordinary' matter, as a 'portal' for dark energy, and as a potential model on which to base assumptions of the future.
The future to my mind is filled to the gunnels with interdimensional discoveries. While the hunt goes on, with the particle physics pack baying excitedly at every new possibility to emerge, other connections are forging to the multi-layered landscape of dimensions beyond our own. And this, to me, makes sense. A recent article posted by @815wrldtrvlr is well worth reading, finally giving the stamp of verified certainty that out-of-body experience (which can only happen if the mind is able to access dimensional shift) is a reality - Visualised Heartbeat Triggers Out of Body Experience
When - not if, but when - we cross the bridge from 3-dimensional thinking to multi-dimensional thinking, we will be on the trail of a brand new adventure in which our minds are finally free to be what they need to be - mirrors of a higher cosmological order where universal information is truly within our grasp. Time, it seems, is of the essence. _/l_/l_/l ...
