If we let two 1-dimensional lines intersect at an angle in a 2-dimensional space, we create a point (figure 1).

Figure 1

If we let two 2-dimensional planes intersect at an angle in a 3-dimensional space, we create a line (figure 2). This line will of course be infinitely narrow and not really exist. In order for the line to exist, the two planes must have a slight granularity extending into the 3rd dimension, almost like the fibers in a sheet of paper.

Figure 2

If we let two 3-dimensional cubes intersect at an angle in a 4-dimensional space, we create a plane (figure 3).

Figure 3

If we continue, we can let two 4-dimensional spheres intersect at an angle in a 5-dimensional space, creating a 3 dimensional object. In figure 5 this is show as an American football.

This football could be a representation of our universe. In figure 4 we see how these two spheres collide in a big bang. As they continue to merge in figure 5 the universe keeps expanding.

Figure 5

For the two spheres to interact, and not just pass each other unnoticed like two shadows, there will have to be a minute granularity in the 4 dimensional fabrics. This granularity will extend ever so slightly into the fifth dimension. At any greater scale the two spheres don’t overlap and don’t interfere with each other. But at this minute scale they do, creating drag, turbulence and vortexes.

Little bubbles or foam can be created. The bubbles are created either from one sphere or the other, but the bubbles from the two spheres can’t mix. Almost like oil and water.

(If we put water and then food oil in a plastic bottle we see the two liquids forming a border line or a membrane almost like the two spheres before they start merging. If we shake the bottle gently, simulating a collision, little bubbles of oil form in the water and little bubbles of water form in the oil. You even get bubbles inside other bubbles. All these little bubbles cling as best they can to the borderline, trying to return to their original side. Individually on each side, oil bubbles are attracted to other oil bubbles, and water bubbles are attracted to other water bubbles. If we leave the bottle sitting for a while, all the bubbles will return to their original side of the membrane. Another familiar analogy is the membrane where the atmosphere meets the ocean, creating waves and ocean spray in the atmosphere, and air bubbles in the water).

Bubbles can exist on the oily side or the watery side, while our universe is the membrane itself. We experience the tiny four dimensional bubbles as three dimensional particles on this membrane, just like the Flatlanders perceive your finger as a circle. So the bubbles always remain four dimensional. The bubbles can produce ripples and waves in the membrane, and waves can make the membrane snap, producing new bubbles.

There must also be properties of the two big 4 dimensional spheres, causing the bubbles to take only certain shapes, leaving them with a finite number of possible ways to combine and interact. Each little bubble is a small copy of the big sphere it originated from, and each little bubble can collide with other bubbles at various angles making the process repeat itself in a smaller scale. This iteration can produce tiny “universes” with self organizing internal structures similar to organic fractals found in nature. These fractals can only exist within the granularity of the fabric of the merging 4 dimensional spheres.

Where the sides of bubbles in the fractals meet, 3 dimensional space at a minute scale is created. This space will warp and coil in on itself (seen from our standpoint) since it is created of the sides of several 4 dimensional bubbles. No material matter can exist in this space.Time will go back and forth, splitting and joining, causing the density of this space to shrink and grow.

This will lead to a harmonic, self sustaining vibration, keeping the fractal structure interlocked. Once a bubble is locked in, it can’t leave, because that would require a change in the vibration and fractal configuration. Almost like cymatics vibrations in corn starch solution.

If a little bubble gets pushed into a different angle than its originating sphere (figure 5), it can’t merge back into the original sphere. It can only interact with it, and with other bubbles. However, bubbles with the same angle can merge together, creating empty bubbles of astronomical sizes.

A variation of this idea:

The two merging 4 dimensional objects can of course have any shape, they may even be infinite. If they are infinite, the starting point of our universe would not have been caused by a collision, but rather an angular separation, where the two four dimensional objects shifted slightly to an angle from each other in the five dimensional space, almost like separating the threads in a weaving loom. With this model it is difficult to envision a big bang. The universe would appear out of nothing, infinitely big instantaneously. However, an ever increasing angle between the two objects in the fifth dimension could maybe be perceived as an expanding universe in our 3 dimensional world.
