Hubbard says in THE PHOENIX LECTURES:

*AXIOM FIVE: ENERGY CONSISTS OF POSTULATED PARTICLES IN SPACE.*

*Now, we’ve got space: a viewpoint of dimension.*

*You say: “I am here looking in a direction.” We’ve actually got to have three points out there to look at, to have three dimensional space. If we only had linear space we would have only one dimension point. One point to view. And energy consists of postulated particles in space, so we’ll demark these three points out there to have some three dimensional space and we’ll have these particles which we will call Anchor Points, and we’ll have energy.*

.

To have 3-dimensional space, we need three directions that are independent and cannot be projected on each other. These directions are as follows:

(1) Back to front

(2) Left to right

(3) Bottom to top

When we move a point from back to front, a one-dimensional line is produced. When we move this line from left to right, a two-dimensional surface is produced. When we move this surface from bottom to top, a three-dimensional block of space is produced.

Additional independent considerations, such as, time, shall add more dimensions to this space. For example, two cars may cross the same point at an intersection, but may not crash when times are different.

**There may be any number of independent “directions,” or considerations, added, and each such consideration shall introduce a new dimension to space.**

Energy would be the shifting and vibrating of considerations that make up the space. The most fundamental of these considerations would be the point or location in space and the shifting of this location in the three spatial dimensions. An electromagnetic wave may be the result of spatial locations shifting and vibrating as such. The electromagnetic wave may be looked upon as a ripple in the very fabric of space.

**Space is made up of considerations that are NOT nothing. **It is the shifting and vibrating of space, which manifests as energy. **The conjecture introduced here postulates the relationship of space to energy. **

Vibrating space shall have the fundamental dimension of frequency associated with it. The higher the frequency, the more solid the ripple in space may appear to be. The constraints generated by spatial dimensions may make this energy wave appear as a particle like electron and others that make up protons and neutrons.

What is presented here is a wild conjecture that may come to nothing. But we do know from Einstein’s research that energy condenses as matter. So the ideas presented here need to be looked at more closely for consistency or inconsistencies.

## Comments

I have clarified this post a little more. It is the independence of consideration that provides a new dimension to space.

Space is basically made up of dimensions. A dimension is a special kind of considerations being independent of other considerations.

A consideration of “love” may be quite independent of the consideration of “freedom”, or the consideration of “fierceness.”.

Maybe the gods in Hinduism are personifications of such independent dimensions of a metaphysical space.

In the future, we may find this view of space to be primitive. “3-Dimensional space” is to me a rationalization of our perception. The illusory machinery generating such a rationalization may be found to be very different than extant knowledge teaches us.

Seeing things as they are is what we have to go by.

One more thought on 3 dimensional space is that we should be cautious about attempting to discuss it parsed out from time. It seems better to me to practice thinking about it always with respect to time as the more we practice, the easier it becomes.

That is correct.
