Sculpting the Void Seven Hidden Compacted Dimensions in Hyperspace “... the broken
symmetries of a higher dimensional space yield the four big dimensions
...
Perhaps the real world with its four big dimensions corresponds to the broken but stable solutions to equations describing the symmetries of a multidimensional geometry.” (Pagels, 1985, p. 8) “Seven hidden
dimensions of the universe ... have been proposed in a theory that
seeks to unify the forces of nature. There is no question of, say, an
atom going off round the (7 hidden) dimensions. 
Profound new ideas have emerged in modern physics about the hidden
dimensionality of existence. Traditionally, space has been
regarded as three dimensional and time is considered as a fourth
dimension. Thus, relativity theory describes the curvature of the
fourdimensional spacetime continuum. However, in the twentieth
century, physicists suggested that the four ordinary dimensions are
only the “four large dimensions,” because we experience our
lives (seemingly) living within these dimensions. Physicists now
describe the laws of nature evident within the four large dimensions as
dependent upon processes occurring within underlying “hidden
compacted dimensions.” As physicists seek to integrated the
four forces of physics into one fundamental force, additional higher
dimensions of Space were so postulated. One of the most advanced
models of such “hidden dimensions,” designed to explain the four laws
of physics, in the 1980s, was the eleven dimensional KaluzaKlein
supergravity theory.
In 1921, Kaluza, a German physicist, had been inspired by Einstein’s
general theory of relativity, which explained gravity in terms of the
‘geometry’ of a four dimensional curved spacetime continuum. Kaluza
attempted to unify the electromagnetic force with gravity by
postulating another fifth dimension of space. Kaluza demonstrated
that Einstein’s gravitational field equations, if written in a five
dimensional form, could be arranged to yield the usual four dimensional
equations plus the electromagnetic equations of Maxwell. Kaluza
postulated that this extra dimension existed at every point underlying
the four dimensional spacetime as a “compacted” dimension; a tiny
circle in the fifth dimension would allow an extra degree pf freedom of
motion to particles. Kaluza was the first to develop a unified
field theory giving a geometric explanation of both the gravitational
and electromagnetic forces.
In 1926, O. Klein, a Swedish physicist, noted that Kaluza’s extra
dimension would go unnoticed if it were “rolled up” very small or
compacted. An example used to illustrate this is that of a garden hose
as seen from a distance, where any point on the line of the hose is
actually a small circle extended around the circumference of the
hose. Similarly, Klein suggested that perhaps Kaluza’s extra
dimension is so small that we cannot distinguish it from a point, but
which is really a small circle extended into the fifth dimension.
Klein computed the circumference of this fifth dimensional loop, was
about 10^{30} centimeters, approximately 10 to 100 Planckian
units.

For years, KaluzaKlein type theories postulating additional hidden
dimensions fell out of favor as an approach to unifying the laws of
physics. Instead, physicists attempted to unify gravity and the
other quantum field theories using the concept of gauge fields
and hidden symmetries. Gradually, physicists realized that the
symmetries associated with K.K. hidden dimensions could be used to
yield purely geometric interpretations of the YangMills fields with
their gauge symmetries. Pagels explained: … the extra freedom of movement
of a particle around a little circle in the fifth dimension, associated
with a little circle symmetry at each point in spacetime could be
interpreted as the simply gauge symmetry of the electromagnetic
field. This interpretation of is not so surprising to us from a
modern viewpoint if we realize that a symmetry (like the littlecircle
symmetry) automatically implies the existence of a gauge field.
(1985, p. 312) K.K. theory reemerged when it
was realized that it was compatible with approaches to unification
based on the concepts of symmetry and gauge fields. However, contemporary physicists
want not only to unify gravity and the electromagnetic force but also
to include the strong and weak forces. These additional forces
required additional symmetries and gauge fields, or additional hidden
dimensions. Thus, the new gauge theories came to be reformulated in
terms of KaluzaKlein theories with the addition of extra microscopic
hidden dimensions. Pagels explains that:
Theoretical physicists generalized the original fivedimensional theory
to an arbitrary number of higher dimensions. All the higher
dimensions are compact; they are curled up into a tiny multidimensional
space that exists at each point of ordinary space and hence is
unobservable. But the freedom of moving around these compact tiny
spaces with symmetries more general that the simple symmetry of a
circle corresponds exactly to the freedom of performing YangMills
gauge transformations. Remarkably, the local gauge symmetries are
precisely the symmetries of the compact higherdimensional space.
Because of this mathematical fact, all the gauge theories of YangMills
fields can be interpreted purely geometrically in terms of such compact
higherdimensional spaces. (Pagels, 1985b, p. 313) In the revitalized KaluzaKlein
theory, the gauge field symmetries become concrete; they are the
geometric symmetries associated with the extra space dimensions. … A
simple count of the number of symmetry operations embodied in the grand
unified force leads to a theory in which there must be seven extra
dimensions, making ten space dimensions in all, plus time, or theory
postulates an elevendimensional universe. (pp. 1601)
Seven hidden dimensions are
required to accommodate the three major quantum field theories
(electromagnetism, the strong and weak forces) with their inherent
symmetries and gauge fields. Geometrically broken symmetries
within the seven hidden dimensions are then the ‘nomenal causes’ of the
phenomena of nature. Only gravity remained associated with the
four large dimensions of spacetime.
Modern physicists regard the creation of the matter and energies of the
universe as resulting from “broken symmetries” within higher
dimensional space. In the beginning, the quantum vacuum was in a
state of perfect symmetry, until a random fluctuation
broke this symmetry leading to the differentiation of the forces of
nature and the quantum particles, which mediate these forces. As
Pagels explains in the opening quotation, “the broken symmetries of
a higher dimensional space yield the four big dimensions.” He then
refers to “the symmetries of multidimensional geometry” as
underlying “the real world.” Ideas concerning higher
dimensional spaces, or hyperspace, have become a mainstay in the new
physics. The quantum vacuum, on a very low level of
differentiation at Planck’s units, is a spacetime foam having an inner
hidden nature which scientists are seeking to grasp. Any particles or
forces can be regarded as the result of broken geometric symmetries
within the hyperspace of these compacted dimensions. These models of
physics extend a geometric framework into understanding hyperspace
dimensions.
In Superforce: The Search for a Grand Unified Theory of Nature,
Paul Davies, provides an inspiring description of the universe as it
appears in the newer models of the geometry of hidden higher
dimensionality spaces: “All the
forces of nature are revealed as nothing more than hidden geometry at
work. ... There is a deep compulsion to believe in the idea that the
entire universe, including all the apparently concrete matter that
assails our senses, is in reality only a frolic of convoluted
nothingness, that in the end the world will turn out to be a sculpture
of pure emptiness, a selforganizing void. Geometry was the
midwife of science (for early astronomers), and now, we have come full
circle, and the forces and fields are themselves being explained in
terms of geometry.” (1984, p.1612)
When it comes to explaining why the universe might happen to be founded
on such a seven dimensional hyperspace, Davies raises some interesting
questions concerning the meaning of it all: This basic scientific model of higher dimensions at zero point levels is quite consistent with the bizarre metaphysics suggested by Blavatsky over a century ago. The Eternal Ceaseless Breath modifies it motion on the basis of seven invisible points existent within the Seven Skinned Eternal Parent Space. Blavatsky’s Secret Doctrine suggested that the forces of nature manifest outwardly through ‘zero point sources,’ from the Laya or undifferentiated state, and are rooted within a sevenskinned Eternal Parent Space. Blavatsky describes the seven inside as “digging holes in Space” to channel their intelligence/influences into the material realm. Thus, seven Laya Centers, seven invisible zero points, are established as a foundation for physical manifestation—seven invisible centers beyond the level of physical differentiation: ... all the
socalled Forces of Nature, Electricity, Magnetism, Light, Heat, etc.,
etc., far from being modes of motion of material particles, are in
esse, i.e., in their ultimate constitution, the differentiated
aspects of that Universal Motion. ... When Fohat is said to
produce “Seven Laya Centres,” it means that for formative or creative
purposes, the GREAT LAW (Theists may call it God) stops, or rather
modifies its perpetual motion on seven invisible points within the area
of the manifested Universe. “The great Breath digs through
Space seven holes into Laya to cause them to circumgyrate during
Manvantara.” (Occult Catechism). We have said that
Laya is what Science may call the Zeropoint or line; the realm of
absolute negativeness, or the one real absolute Force … the neutral
axis, not one of the many aspects, but its centre. … “Seven
Neutral Centres,” then are produced by Fohat …. (S.D.,
I , pp.1478) In this view, the true
foundation for the laws of nature and of material quanta (and the
foundation of human consciousness), are these invisible points–the Laya
Centres–which extend from physical dimensions into the metaphysical
realms of Being/NonBeing—into the Eternal Parent Space and the Eternal
Ceaseless Breath. The Gods and other invisible powers “clothe”
themselves in bodies based upon such Zero point neutral centres—or
undifferentiated Laya Centres.
Although on some occasions the Zero Point is described as singular, at
other times it is described has having this inner sevenfold
differentiation. Like Fohat, it is One and Seven. It is
from such mysterious zero point conditions that the differentiation of
a Cosmos and a quantum or Monad begins. Paul Davies describes a
similar model of 11 dimensional theory, with seven hidden compacted
dimensions rolled up into elements at zero point levels. Davies
explained: “think of the extra dimensions as somehow inside the
atom.” (p. 160) Remarkably, Blavatsky explained exactly such
a peculiar inner dimensionality to ‘atoms,’ quanta, Monads and the
Kosmos over a century ago. There is a complex metaphysics to
reality at zero point levels. As Blavatsky explains: “God
‘geometrizes!” (1877, I, p. 508)
