I have been re-reading my book by Eli Rook the title of which could not be posted here without editing, I'll give enough so you could Google search if you want, "The Big @$%^ing Secret."
He talks about fifth dimensional life and the difference between the dimensions. Now the first dimension is a line, the second crossed lines so you have two coordinates a and b but the third dimension provides up and down as well to form three coordinates a, b and c. But the fourth is time even when something seems to be still it is constantly changing with the passage of time. But now the fifth dimension is of possibility, it is the dimension of potential.
Now I started thinking of life and my everyday experiences of life that seem to be just a straight line with no choice the ones that I made. I started thinking this is a very one dimensional way to handle life. sometimes we see two choices. This is only two dimensional thinking. So each time we think of choice and possibility and add more choices and more possibilities we are expanding our options and seeing greater possibilities for more varied outcomes. I see this as a game of billiards, now if we shrink down to the size of the cue ball we see limited possibilities for what may be next as a shot. But as we get a higher and higher perspective we see more and more choices and what did not seem like a choice may be the best choice now. So we are now not only looking at a perspective of what is next but what this and many other options will lead to, each path considered now not only for the next move but two, three or four moves ahead as each possibility is calculated for each choice, so each choice is calculated through the fourth dimension of time as to the actions that set up other actions that set up other actions and as yet each shot although planed in advance is still considered for alternate possibilities.
We are actually thinking in this fifth dimensional way for billiards, but for life it seems we just shrink behind the cue ball and take the obvious choice.
Now what will happen if we do the same for life, using wide scope reasoning and consideration of all the possible outcomes and the linked outcomes of each of those possibilities?
I think we will find a level of control of experience we never knew we could have.
If we consider everything before each choice, I know at first it will slow everything down. But just as we learn billiards at first we take a lot of time to examine possibilities but then as we learn to use this reasoning it gets faster and faster until we can look at the whole table and see our course of action right away through all of the possibilities that present themselves to us.
So do you feel that by expanding what our potential choices are and what they may bring can as well expand our abilities until it seems that we just know stuff no one else does, and we function at an awake level beyond most comprehension?

Great question Wade! The aerial view of a billiards table, as we see in billiards competitions on TV, is a good example of how to look down on the table and see your many choices of different shots you can make as opposed to being behind the cue ball and only seeing one shot to make from that perspective.
I think it's a much bigger picture than that. I think the perspective behind the cue ball is more like looking through a magnifying glass on a small patch of grass in an area the size of 20 football fields.
The actual possibilities are spread out over the 20 football fields. There's no possible way we can would be able to see all the possibilities. You could only see that spiritual level......BUT....we can attract possibilities from around the 20 football fields to show up under our magnifying glass.

This is a challenging question.
It is hard to think in one or three dimensions- let alone five! I apologize for my original answer- I am very, very depressed. No excuse to write a lousy answer, though.
My understanding is that we are stuck with four dimensions- length, width, height, and time. It has been suggested that the fifth dimension could be many things. Let's look at what the fifth dimension really is!
Here is a quote from Wiki which explains the possibility of the fifth dimension and what exists there:
Abstract five-dimensional space occurs frequently in mathematics, and is a legitimate construct. Whether or not the real universe in which we live is somehow five-dimensional is a topic that is debated and explored in several branches of physics, including astrophysics and particle physics.
In physics, the fifth dimension is a hypothetical extra dimension beyond the usual three spatial dimensions and one time dimension of Relativity. The Kaluza-Klein theory used the fifth dimension to unify gravity with the electromagnetic force; e.g. Minkowski space and Maxwell's equations in vacuum can be embedded in a five-dimensional Riemann curvature tensor. Kaluza-Klein theory today is seen as essentially a gauge theory, with gauge group the circle group. M-theory suggests that space-time has 11 dimensions, seven of which are "rolled up" to below the subatomic level. Physicists have speculated that the graviton, a particle thought to carry the force of gravity, may "leak" into the fifth or higher dimensions, which would explain how gravity is significantly weaker than the other three fundamental forces.
In 1993 the physicist Gerard 't Hooft put forward the holographic principle, which explains that the information about an extra dimension is visible as a curvature in a spacetime with one fewer dimension. For example, holograms are three-dimensional pictures placed on a two-dimensional surface, which gives the image a curvature when the observer moves. Similarly, in general relativity, the fourth dimension is manifested in observable three dimensions as the curvature path of a moving infinitesimal (test) particle. Hooft has speculated that the fifth dimension is really the spacetime fabric.
As for looking at our choices fifth-dimensionally- well, then we would have to consider a whole lit of stuff that exists outside of our continuum. I think that what you are suggesting is more of a overhead view of our choices- we must step outside ourselves and take a look from a different vantage point than we are used to taking. We may or may not see choices that we would not have seen before from this "bird's eye" view.
The mathematics behind the actual fifth dimension is pretty steep, but if you investigated it, Wade, I have no doubt whatsoever that you could master it! Perhaps your calling is as a theoretical physicist, hmmm?
I guess I am stuck with those four dimensions in my choices- but you are proposing a new way of thinking. This is good!

there is many truth out there that one can reach by being aware. the truth will set you free. that you apply the tag dimension to describe what you see does it change anything? if you encounter a dimension that does not work solely on mathematics. example: quantum mechanic the fact that the one that is aware also affect the result of the experiment and when there is no one there the result is not the same could it be the viewer of the experiment is part of the experiment he is interacting with the experiment at a level that he is not aware about.
the interfering wave is it really interfering or is it interacting?
since it is changing the result at a lower level interacting with the awareness of the observer. it is giving more spectrum then 2.
similar to a prism when the white light goes through it you get the different color's out of the white light. light works with wave and spectrum of light. so you get more then white and dark. you get 7 more color's that mix together gives even more color's option to choose from.
they build extremely big machine to go extremely small. not that it is bad to go in extreme but when you go in one extremes you fall in the opposite extremes. where is the middle?
also when trying to entrap something is it normal that it seek to get out? what is strange about that? it is the same in the world with any living things, animal and even men will fight for their freedom. they should seek to understand each other through their interaction rather then trying to entrap each other.
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God's sight. As it is written: "He catches the wise in their craftiness";
For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate."
Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will.
Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure.
Let there be light, be the light that you can be, experience and enjoy.

@Wade Casildi I also like to play billiards I started to play this game at age 4. the white ball is the one that brings all other ball in movement in the game. but even before that it is the player vision and awareness of the table that will make the choice to set the white ball in to motion and drive the ball with a certain force and effect to accomplish the trajectory of the ball to achieve the choice that the player made for the path of the white ball where it will go what ball it is going-
to hit where it is going to send that or those balls and where will the white ball end its course on the table for the next move for the player or the opponent. one should achieve is shoot that the shoot was achieved or not. you see one should place the ball for is next shoot and if miss should give a high level shoot for the opponent according to is skill. if I tell you that you can even make the white ball do a curve around a obstacle ball to reach the desire ball does it open more-
possibility for you? here is a video that might open some more possibility for you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2XHxXypNWI you might also like this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXKPkitopUU the white ball control is very important when playing billards or trick shoot.
it is a human capability, not sure it can turned on by the intellect alone, but possible for each of us
