Spacetime is widely known as the 3rd dimension of space, and the inseparable 4th dimension of time, which means space and time cannot exist apart. But what if there was a missing link, a 5th dimension of Perception, that cannot exist apart from Spacetime? Perception is exactly what it sounds like, the “recognition and interpretation of sensory stimuli based chiefly on memory.” Without perception, there wouldn’t be any way to experience the Universe around us. We exist in some form or another, even when we pass on, because energy is never created, nor ever destroyed, energy is always restored, so we will continue to exist!
The 5th dimension of Perception is ever-present in our environment, throughout the entire Universe. Without anything to perceive, what would there be? How would space and time exist? You cannot separate yourself from your perception of reality, but it is very deeply entwined in you. An experiment one could conduct is to see if you could recognise the way you perceive something, and change in that area, like try to make your water taste like a soda with sheer willpower! It is very hard to do, but you can feel the senses of perception when you focus on it.
Reality is often thought as an illusion, just a way that your brain tricks you into believing in what you see. Well, reality is not necessarily an illusion, but rather a way of looking at the world around you. You perceive what you believe is real, and without belief, you would not be able to comprehend the laws of physics and the way the world around you operates. You can change your beliefs, and you will perceive a different view of the world, but you cannot separate yourself from your ability to perceive your reality.
Anything that you cannot simply turn off in the laws of physics is supported as it’s own dimension, such as the 5th dimension of Perception. This isn’t to say there are different dimensions for every single little idea or object, but rather that it is something that you will never be able to rule out, no matter what direction our fate and eventually how our reality will go forward. Humans may go extinct, so we are not in our own dimension, but Spacetime and Perception will always present itself, no matter who is there to see it, and who is not.
