If you mean a dualism like the wave/particle dualism, there ain't
none. If you mean a mind/brain dualism, which is really not a dualism
at all as the physical consciousness of the brain is very different
from the consciousness manifested by the compact manifolds (which is
the basis of our individual minds as well as a universal mind, much
like comp) even though the two consciousnesses are connected and often
copies of each other.
The space of this model is 3-D. The extra dimensions have precipitated
out into very tiny balls some 1000 Planck lengths across. Everything
is in the physical world, but the compact manifolds each instantly
image the entire universe within themselves which puts them
effectively outside spacetime.
Let me know if you cannot see that and I will try to explain it to you
some other way.
