Feeling pressed for time? A New Scientist interview reported by the Telegraph posits that we have more time than you think:
Time is no longer a simple line from the past to the future, in a four dimensional world consisting of three dimensions of space and one of time. Instead, the physicist envisages the passage of history as curves embedded in a six dimensions, with four of space and two of time.
“There isn’t just one dimension of time,” Itzhak Bars of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles tells New Scientist. “There are two. One whole dimension of time and another of space have until now gone entirely unnoticed by us.”
Everything you see and know is a shadow of events and objects taking place in a six-dimensional universe – like hands making shadow pictures on a wall.
