Neil deGrasse Tyson during the presentation of his latest book “Astrophysics for the rest of us”, answers questions about events that cannot be explained by our traditional senses. The book is a must read for an easy introduction to astrophysics. We focused, instead, on how it would be possible for humans to live in a higher dimension. June 2017.

Neil is such a douche. He isn’t even smart enough to understand how he isn’t smart.
Science Through Art
Well Neil, I am sorry to inform you without me being any kind of scientist like deal on physics matters, but my own thinking had been always on those maters and once I've seen some kind of picturing of atoms there had come onto my mind an old talk that I had on with my cousin (B.A.) which is a physics guy-person and he had been telling me that life cannot be thought as a small part of some other person like we are living inside the body of that exact person on a tiny little spot we are calling the earth (When we do not know anything about that person's existence, but only we are imagining, only please tell me could we be a little spot on some person's body? I mean, hey, we have depicted our own galaxy and got down to the most tiny little parts that are called the atoms, which are doing the exact same move like atoms are on this universe, OK? So maybe, I say, maybe we are living inside some person's body but we are too thin in our mind to grasp all that thought, huh? And it is just a thought, and not a fact, OK?

To use your monsters Inc analogy. Sully doesn't make the door, he doesn't know the technology.. he just uses it. Should he then listen to the voice of the child on the otherside of the door? Just because there is a portal doesn't necessarily mean those on either side understand it.

The ant, this guy on the left is talking about, actually is mor intelligent than he is. Ants even use their own bodies to help other ants climb up into the third dimension, or build bridges with their bodies for other ant to reach the other side of a gap. Also, it is not very academic, to laugh about theories, just because he does not have the concsiousness and intelligence it takes to understand them. And then he states he would blow the peoples' minds with what he claims to be not possible as he is still in the plains of Africa with his mind. Well, probably he did not blow my mind, as it surely is NOT in the plains of Africa. Worst "science" talk ever!

People who believe in Jesus as the son of God, the imaginary friends of many, could well be the other dimension and getting there is easy and is in the imagination of the person or persons who are doing the imagining. So no folks, I don't agree or think there is another plain or dimension, I'm sorry but once the lights go out that really does mean you've had your final curtain call. People like Mr Tyson are simply beings who have learned from books and have the gifg of the gab which makes them feel they can mouth off on a stage or a TV platform. It may seem like entertainment but this guy and many like him are simply getting paid for their thoughts. There is no one being on this planet, no matter how clever they seem after reading about astrophysics that has the real answer. Not a person now, before and in the future.

"You will need a testifier that comes from another place". Sound a lot like Jesus to me. You said you will listen to such a being because clearly he will have more knowledge then you. So my question is . Do you believe the testimony of Jesus or are you just another colonial hymenopterous insect with a complex social organization and various castes performing special duties obsessed with figuring out the dimensions of the ant farm you call home.

The human body releases a substance called DMT which makes you feel like you're being touched by God. They managed to synthesize said substance and so now you can give it a try yourself without having to die.

According to hinduism, we are living in 3 dimensional world. When we die, we enter the fourth dimension ( time ). God lives in 5th or 6th dimension. Please read Vedas ( oldest scripture in the world ) for more information.

True story... My father died in nov 2012.. he came to me in a dream and told me a very specific day and to look out I'm going to get some money. I played the lotto, told all my relatives to play the lotto on that day.... The day came, about 11am my lawyer called me and said to come to his office he had a check for $4,500 🤯 didn't win the lotto... But I had my proof there is life after death😑

If our senses are so unreliable, how did we manage to not only survive but proliferate? Instrumentation extended our senses. They also helped verify what our senses were informing us of. Factually, instrumentation was predicated upon biological senses. Further, we may well be attuned to and sensing natural phenomena we are not cognitively recognizing. To claim we may be "living" in higher order dimensions while simultaneously denying the critical role of the senses in scientific endeavors is hypocritical.

He had my attention until... Wait, so the Monsters Inc. doorway portal analogy, Neil is okay with? The ant and paper analogy, he's okay with? He explains that so long as you can SEE and HEAR someone from the other side to prove it's real, but eyewitness accounts shouldn't be used as scientific evidence, like the lady's conversation with her deceased father... But yet, Jesus feeding 5,000 people (witnesses) right before their very eyes, known as the "miracle of the five loaves and two fish" is not evidence of an existence of another dimension???... Interesting... (( eye roll )) He's right about people believing what they want to believe is true.

Traversing thru dimensions is an insane concept. With that being said, most people only observe 1% of the frequencies around them because their brains aren't capable of perceiving them. (Light, sound, hearing etc.) Yet society, doctors & governments perceive them as "schizophrenic" or "mentally ill". 🤔

I told her she had to come with me that everyone would be so happy to see her. She told me no I’m so happy here and tell everyone I’m so happy here. She said tell everyone I’m so happy and not to worry about her. I turned in the dream and left to continue jogging.

There are thousands of dimensions. The word "di-mens-ion" literally just means "dual-mind-quality". But there are only 3 spatial dimensions and 1 dimension of time. All of the other dimensions are things that science doesn't typically measure. Speed is a dimension with opposites being fast and slow. Gender is a dimension with opposites being male and female. Touch is a dimension with opposites being hard and soft. Taste is a dimension with opposite being delicious and disgusting. Intelligence is a dimension with opposites being smart and stupid. I could go on and on, but I think you get the point.

What about a theory that, The Big Bang, was like an egg that gets fertilized and starts to grow like a life? The birth of our Universe, our singularity is fertilized and the big bang happens. Then as the universe grows, stars (cells) form. The laws of the universe differ from its smaller counter parts, humans. Stars form out of the primal clouds as cells of humans divide and the human grows the universe grows and grows. The end...... or is it?

Science can't explain everything. Some years ago I had a dream that I got stabbed and robbed at the end of the dream I made it home I was on the floor and my mom's husband came home from work late asking what happened. 10 hours later I was stabbed and robbed for real. I didn't feel pain. I was standing outside of my body and there was this beautiful being next to time radiating light but I couldn't see the face. I thought I was dead next thing I know the ordeal is over and I make it home on my bicycle bloody and before police and ambulance showed up my moms husband got home late from work as I laid on the floor exactly as my dream showed me. What will Science say about that experience. I don't think Science can explain it.
