frightening? No! It just takes a little getting used to, for some people. Especially if you,
dear reader, have grown up with confidence in a way of seeing the world that seems to work
and be "true". What is truth? Is "beauty" real, and worth pursuing? These and other
questions will be answered in these pages. Usually, when someone opens a door, the great
fear is that there will be too many more doors on the other side and through any of these doors
one is sure to become lost. But here I can promise that my reality is a closed system and all
doors return back to where you are.
If you are totally new to the InterNetGood luck. Have fun in CyberSpace.
You only live once, so make the most of every moment, and be true to yourself, and responsible for your own actions.
How to See the World in All its Dimensions
Our senses can only perceive a three dimensional world. In our minds, we inhabit
a three dimensional world, but the "real" world is more complex than that.
Is this frightening?

In four dimensions there are eight separate orthogonal three-dimensional projections of the whole. These are like the eight cubes that bound a tesseract.
Imagine this Entrance Room of my WWWeb Site is a three dimensional space. You can move into an adjoining space in each of the usual six orthogonal directions. There are three pairs of opposite directions in a cube, but in a tesseract there are four.
These eight spaces are entire realities, or ontologies. Within them, I have arranged my WWWeb site, to structure all the ideas I want to present, and to reflect the world as I experience it.
The Synthesis of the DualitiesThe unification of competing Philosophies has been the aim of my thought-research. There is an underlying Truth to ALL the religions of the world. "Religions" are a few of the "ontologies" that groups of people hold, some like "Science" deny they are a "religion", but they are an "ontology", hence, there is also an underlying unity to Religion and Science. The strife that we humans create for ourselves derives, in part, from a limited perspective of reality. Our brain structure means that we can only experience three dimensions. We inhabit a four dimensional world, with the additional dimension being "life" itself. It is clearly an error in perception to remain stuck in a single three dimensional mind-set, or "reality". The most violent Religious disputes, represent the very same "reality", and derive their dispute from the way they deny the existence of alternatives.
The Real WorldAll Existence, both its existence, and all individuals' knowledge of it, can be logically arranged in four pairs of opposite "realities". These are single-view ontologies that are 3-d representations of the "real" 4-d universe. Most people have a multiplicity of combinations of these, which the Psycho-Sociologists call our Social Roles. They are arranged in four orthogonal dimensions, I call: bimenions. To simplify the way we can think about this, I have suggested these are really in some way different, and even made a model where they are arranged side by side, like the eight cells of a tesseract. However, these eight "realities" are super-imposed on each other, and all exist simultaneously. The tesseract model, is really presenting eight "elevations" or views of the single four-dimensional "reality", and pairs of these views are looking from opposite directions.
Each individual, and each Society, needs to recognise the existence of these multiple dualities, and the multiplicity of combinations, that give everyone a personal ontology, all of which are valid. However, none is fully visible from any other.
Only by acknowledging them, will we achieve harmony in four dimensions, and balance between opposite directions. Journey with me through my own cyber-projection of Life, the Universe and Everything. Understand the underlying harmony that makes the "real" world the magnificently beautiful place we all should know it to be.
stands for "Tetra- (or Tessa-) land", because of its four dimensions.
Understand the majesty of existence, unhindered by the frailty and limits of bodily senses.
This WWWeb site attempts to describe all I know of me and the world around me. I have been a "thinker" all my life, meeting everyone, knowing "everything" and understanding it all. Now, via CyberSpace, I can present my knowledge and my self in the 4-dimensional hyper structure that seems to suite it, and has made all this knowledge rational to me.
I call this site a THIC WWWeb site, Tesseractical Hyperspace In Cyberspace.
Preface to the Introduction
The Preface to the Introduction is
The place where you, Dear Reader, start to know
Where I have been and where I plan to go.
To some, the way I write will seem a quiz,
Now for you who stay, I show
On reading this, I hear you asking, "Whom
Each cell has its own topography. They should not be thought of as empty cells, with a few links and some direction to go. They represent the real world for me. The cell called "ON" is what exists to physicists, and I project its three dimensions onto a spherical geometry that has the earth's gravity system at its centre, and altitude plotted exactly as it is. In this reality, each person, each living cell, has its location in space. Each has its stored energy and moves as it moves.
In the Environment reality, this same topography holds, but the movement of energy can be observed and explained, in a way that the physicists will never understand. For in this world another type of energy exists, which we have adopted as our own and call "money". Yes, the Economy is an aspect of the environment. "But wait," some cry, "this site was green and environmental, and suddenly it is awash with money." Even if we accept the presence of the Economy, with its money energy, surely this will be the opposite of the environment? Indeed, in many ways, some of the opposites are not opposite at all, and other pairs would better be opposed. The point is, that some, if not all my separate worlds, can be bifurcated within themselves, for example, most people will have wondered why I don't have a Male/female pairing, but this is a false reading, in my opinion.
In each of the eight realities, or mind-sets, there is a separate topology, that superimposes onto the others. It may be, I believe possible, to more accurately map and hence predict human behaviour, with this structure, as movements in one reality affect those in others. They are at different scales, and have different constants and different forms of energy. The system obviously describes a world vastly larger than our senses and our sciences have so far discovered, so there should also be pointers to new directions for fruitful exploration.
But there are also some false, or apparent polarities. We all know about "good" and "evil", but they are a false distinction. They are simple mono-directional projections of underlying dichotomies. In the actual, "real" world, there is no "good" and "evil". They are just value judgements we place on things, depending on our personal point of view.
We can think of each bimension as a direction like up and down, and it is because they have this polarity or 'endedness" that I have split them into separate cells. Indeed, this pairing of opposing cells seemed so natural to me as soon as I thought of it, that everything just seemed to fall into place. I have revised some of my earlier definitions, and welcome comments from others. Here is only a brief description, which I hope to publish in book-form eventually.
Within a static, cold dead world, a three
Dimensional reality would fit.
But life exists, and so the would is lit,
And sees itself suffused with energy.
That fourth dimension, known to some as Ch'i,
Opposing cold, dead science we find Art,
The Boundaries between adjoining cells are not flat, but fractal. We can look through the boundaries between cells into other cells, we can even move into adjoining cells, or appear to be moving inside, because the boundary is not smooth, and so there are indentations where a person in one mode can interact with people from another.
A more advanced way of imagining these cells is to superimpose them onto each other. We can
actually imagine each cell being infinite in extent, and all existing at once, though we can only
exist inside any one at a time. We know we live in a three dimensional world, so what is this
other bimension? "Time" seems to exist within a couple of my bimensions, and I don't think that
"time" is a "dimension" in the way that others are. I have always believed that our perception
of time is quite different from the underlying reality. The extra bimension that I include is some
sort of energy dimension. I equate it to the Chinese concept of Chi. Indeed, I am quite taken
by the ease of representing my eight cells by the eight trigrams that are used in Feng Shui
