I do not understand what you are saying here. The compact manifolds are 10^90/cc, 1000 Planck-length, 6-d particles in a 3-D space. http://www.scholarpedia.org/article/Calabi-Yau_manifold#Calabi-Yau_manifolds_in_string_theory . How can those 6d dimensions be orthogonal to 3D space? I admit that it is a conjecture that each particle maps the universe instantly. So if you have a means to falsify that conjecture I would like to hear about it. Richard >> >> On Wed, Oct 24, 2012 at 8:31 AM, Stephen P.
