Traveling Vast Distances by "Wrinkling"
Crop Circle Discovered at Fosbury, Wiltshire, UK - An amazing new 4D Crop Circle was discovered on July 17th, 2010 at Fosbury, Wiltshire, UK. It shows a Tesseract or 4 Dimensional cube, i.e a cube within a cube. A Tesseract relates to a cube as a cube relates to a square. Every corner of the Tesseract or larger cube is connected to the smaller cube inside. Also referred to as a Hypercube.
In geometry, a hypercube is an n-dimensional analogue of a square (n = 2) and a cube (n = 3). It is a closed, compact, convex figure whose 1-skeleton consists of groups of opposite parallel line segments aligned in each of the space's dimensions, perpendicular to each other and of the same length.
In other-words it is a cube within a cube.
The hypercubes are one of the few families of regular polytopes that are represented in any number of dimensions.
A generalization of the cube to dimensions greater than three is called a "hypercube", "n-cube" or "measure polytope". The tesseract is the four-dimensional hypercube, or 4-cube.
Hypercubes - Starting from Dimension 0 up to Dimension 6
Hypercube rotations for dimension 0 up to 6 (point, line, cube,
tesseract, penteract and sexteract). No extra transformations
were applied, just rotations.
Of course, this is not really 4D, this is a projection of a higher
dimension into a 3D vector space that is itself projected into 2D
for you to see it in your screen.
Artists and writers have used the geometry of the tesseract to produce surrealistic effects, for instance in Salvador Dalí's Crucifixion (Corpus Hypercubus), and Robert A. Heinlein's classic science fiction short story "—And He Built a Crooked House—" (1940) in which an earthquake causes a house built in the shape of the net of a tesseract to fold into an actual tesseract.
In the film Flatland: The Movie a model of a tesseract at the end is used to imply the existence of a physical fourth dimension to the inhabitants of the third.
Greg Bear's short science fiction story "Tangents" involves multidimensional visualization and suggests circumstances in which 4-dimensional objects pass through our 3-space.
Signs is a 2002 American science fiction thriller film written, produced, and directed by M. Night Shyamalan and starring Mel Gibson, Joaquin Phoenix, Rory Culkin, and Abigail Breslin. It was released by Touchstone Pictures.
The film begins with Graham Hess, a former priest who lost his faith after the death of his wife, finding a crop circle in his cornfield.
As the film progresses, crop circles are discovered to be appearing all over the world as is other phenomenon such as lights in the sky.
Graham slowly becomes convinced that the crop circles are the result of aliens and he and his family must prepare to survive the imminent invasion.
Although the plot revolves around aliens and crop circles, producer Frank Marshall said, "It's really about human emotions set in motion by a supernatural event."
Signs garnered generally positive reviews from movie critics. Rotten Tomatoes reported that 74% gave positive appraisals, based on 221 reviews.
At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the film scored a 59, based on 36 reviews. Roger Ebert wrote: "M. Night Shyamalan's 'Signs' is the work of a born filmmaker, able to summon apprehension out of thin air.
When it is over, we think not how little has been decided, but how much has been experienced ... At the end of the film, I had to smile, recognizing how Shyamalan has essentially ditched a payoff. He knows, as we all sense, that payoffs have grown boring."
Like all of Shyamalan's work, Signs is not without its detractors, with Variety's Todd McCarthy writing: "After the overwrought Unbreakable and now the meager Signs, it's fair to speculate whether Shyamalan's persistence in replicating the otherworldly formula of The Sixth Sense might not be a futile and self-defeating exercise."
In 2004, the film was listed as #77 on Bravo's 100 Scariest Movie Moments for the Brazilian birthday party scene.
Cube 2 - Hypercube Trailer
Eight strangers find themselves waking up in a strange
cube-shaped room with no recollection of how they came to be
Soon discovering that they're in a strange fourth dimension
where our laws of physics don't apply, they have to unravel the
secrets of the "hypercube" in order to survive...
A tesseract is the basis of the movie Cube 2: Hypercube in which
a group of people have to attempt to escape from one.
Others, however, have used the word as a shorthand for
something strange or unknown without any reference to the
actual figure, as in Alex Garland's novel The Tesseract.
Cube 2: Hypercube is the sequel of the science fiction/horror film Cube. Released in 2002, Hypercube had a bigger budget than its predecessor, and a new director, Andrzej Sekuła.
The industrial-style rooms of the first film are replaced with high-tech, brightly-lit chambers; instead of traps like flamethrowers and extending spikes, the rooms themselves are the danger as they distort time and move through each other. It was released in the United States on April 15th, 2003.
The longer alternate ending included in the 'extras' on the DVD reveals the 'owners' to be the government; in the shorter version it is unclear who they are, but it is assumed they are Izon. Kate is executed in both versions, but she is praised for being the first operative to make it out alive. In the alternate ending it is revealed to Kate that she was in the Hypercube for just six minutes and 59 seconds.
The cube is owned by the government. It was an experiment used for quantum teleportation.
Quantum teleportation, or entanglement-assisted teleportation, is a technique used to transfer quantum information from one quantum system to another.
It does not transport the system itself, nor does it allow communication of information at superluminal (faster than light) speed.
Neither does it concern rearranging the particles of a macroscopic object to copy the form of another object. Its distinguishing feature is that it can transmit the information present in a quantum superposition, useful for quantum communication and computation.
More precisely, quantum teleportation is a quantum protocol by which a qubit a (the basic unit of quantum information) can be transmitted exactly (in principle) from one location to another.
The prerequisites are a conventional communication channel capable of transmitting two classical bits (i.e. one of four states), and an entangled Bell pair (b,c) of qubits, with b at the origin and c at the destination. (So whereas b and c are intimately related, a is entirely independent of them other than being initially colocated with b.)
The protocol has three steps: measure a and b jointly to yield two classical bits; transmit the two bits to the other end of the channel (the only potentially time-consuming step, due to speed-of-light considerations); and use the two bits to select one of four ways of recovering c.
The upshot of this protocol is to permute the original arrangement ((a,b),c) to ((b′,c′),a), that is, a moves to where c was and the previously separated qubits of the Bell pair turn into a new Bell pair (b′,c′) at the origin.It has been experimentally shown to work over distances of up to 16 kilometers.
A Wrinkle in Time - Madeleine L'Engle
Madeleine L'Engle in the science fiction-fantasy novel A Wrinkle In Time uses a tesseract as a way of traveling.
The easiest way to understand how a tesseract would help with travel is by analogy. Imagine a two dimensional creature, stuck on the surface of a three dimensional cube.
Traveling across the surface of the cube would take more time than cutting through the center of the cube, as a three dimensional creature might.
Traveling by "tesser" or "wrinkling" allows the children of the book to be transported to places unreachable by normal means of travel.
This crop circles message (whether it came from humans or extra-terrestrials) is most likely linked to the book 'A Wrinkle in Time' by author Madeleine L'Engle. The message is quite simple, these 'Aliens' are visiting Earth by using a tesseract as a way of traveling.
Like in the book, the children traveled by "tesser" or "wrinkling" to transport themselves to places which are unreachable by normal means of travel.
Since there is no question in my mind that life exists on other planets the big problem for traveling from one point to another would be the vast distances needed to arrive at a specific location.
A truly intelligent species with far more maturity then the human race would find 'back-doors' for a means of traveling from one point to another, thus eliminating the large-scale 'time' needed for the trip.
The Hypercube Rotation
This image demonstrates the hypercube rotation which is the same
method of travel used in the book "A Wrinkle in Time'.
This is a possible explanation as to how a species would be able to
use a shortcut from one point to another bringing down the amount
of 'time' needed to travel at far distances.
A species this powerful would most likely have been existing for millions of years compared to the human races existence which is believed to be only approximately 200,000 years.
Almost all living things have some form of structure to make their life more easy in one way or another. Is it that hard to believe that a species far more intelligent then our own would use this ability as well?
Humans tend to discredit talk of specific bits of information which seem too far-fetched to be remotely possible because they compare it to their specific technology and intelligence within their current time period.
If you were to go back in time to the 1800s and discuss with a person within that time period about an invention called computers and the internet I am sure that they would discredit you quite quickly too. And this is only going back a little over 200 years ago.
