Multidimensional in the
creativity perspective is about freedom of movement and the
ability to seemingly lose energy in one dimensional only to have it
appear in another. It refers to having more than one degree of
movement. Infinitely dimensional refers to the fact that we have a
infinite number of degrees of freedom or movement. .
Freedom of movement
Freedom of movement is about being
free to move one way or another. A point has no freedom of movement.
A point is fixed. A line has one degree of freedom. We can move
along the line. Think of a horizontal line. We can move along the
line right or left. Compared to a point we have an infinite freedom
for we can move to an infinite number of points along the line. Yet
we only ave one degree of freedom - that is, along the line.
A plane, made up of two lines intersecting gives us a whole new
dimension. We now have two degrees freedom. Where as on a line we
could only move along the line, we can now move anywhere in a the
plane. We can move off the line itself and into the plane. Although
we only have two degrees of freedom, we have an infinite number of
more options than if we were confined to a line.
Three lines intersecting create a space a we know it. Where as a
sheet of paper is two dimensional, a cube, which we say occupies
space, has three dimensions. Where as in a plane we could only move
anywhere in the plane, we can now move anywhere in space. We can
move off the plane and into the space. Although we only have three
degrees of freedom, we have an infinite number of more options than
if we were confined to a plane.
For line intersecting create which we call the space time continuum.
Twentieth Century physics talks about the product of time multiplied
by the speed of light (ct) as a fourth dimension in the time-space
continuum of the universe. Where space is three dimensional, the
space time continuum has four dimensions. Where as in space we could
only move anywhere in space, we can now move anywhere in space at a
different time. We can move out of the space into space-time.
Although we only have four degrees of freedom, we have an infinite
number of more options than if we were confined to space.
Multidimensional really refers to greater than four dimensions. When
we get beyond three dimensions we being to have problems
contemplating what such a space looks like. Yet we can take a simple
example that can show how a multidimensional space works.
We start with a point and putting it into two dimensions, we can
expand it to create a circle. In three dimensions we create a ball
or a sphere. Then we can give the ball a color and there are an
infinite number of colors we can give it. Then we can give a texture
to the surface and there are an infinite number of surfaces we can
give it. We can give it an interior and there are an infinite number
of interiors. Then we can create a structure to the interior and so
forth. But we can overlay all of the choices we make with our
preference. For any one color, surface texture, size of sphere,
interior and the like we can have a wide range of personal
preferences. For example we may tremendously love the color or
tremendous hate the color with all the various in between those two
Which should be obvious is that each one of our actions provide a
degree or freedom or freedom of movement. Each action creates a
whole new set of options. This is what multidimensional is all
Exchange of energy
We continually exchange energy
across dimensions. We are not segmented and compartmented like
watertight ship. Nor are our creations.
We think the various aspects of our lives, such a parent, lover,
employee, sibling, offspring, and the like are separate. We think we
can keep what happens at work separate from our home life. We think
our relationships with our siblings or parents is separate from our
relationship with our friends and the people at work. But nothing
can be farther from the truth. Most of these exchange goes on at a
subconscious and energetic level so we are never consciously aware
of exactly how they affect us and the various aspects of our lives.
What is important to realize is these exchanges of energy also
affect our creations. For example, in the example of the sphere
above, we can become passionate about the color of the sphere and we
spend an enormous amount of time look at variation in color. But
while we are shopping in the store we find ourselves looking a
clothing and we notice some clothing feels better than other
clothing against our skin. In feeling the texture of the cloth, we
realize that we can give a texture to our creation. Suddenly we
become passion about finding a texture for the surface of our
sphere. In that moment, the whole creation of the sphere changed and
the energy shifts both between aspects of the creation and out of
some other part of our life into our creation.
