Can you project yourself onto the zero dimension?
For scientists everything is possible except the impossible. How can true = false? It’s impossible yet I can show it mathematically.
Consider projection - in linear algebra and functional analysis, a projection is a linear transformation P from a vector space to itself such that P^2 = P. It leaves its image unchanged. What this mean in layman's terms is that you can take things down in dimensions while keeping the essence of the object intact. You can use this same mathematical model on anything since everything in existence must adhere to this law. Does this including your own existence?
For example, if you consider your life as a series of events, from birth till death, each event is a step in time. Each of those steps is set in 3D while the series would be considered in the 4th dimension (time). Now, if you take a photo of any event in your life a 2D image is created of you. The math seems right. The image is now 2D but the essence is still true. Now even though this image is extracted from the 4D to the 2D you can still relate to that picture. You still know it is you in that image. The reason why you can do this is because of the Law of Projection, each dimension keeps the same concept only more abstracted but this does not stop there.
You can relate this image of you down to the 1 dimension. Here the image becomes just a line this is similar to your name. Even though you can’t see your face any more you can relate to the label of your name. It’s lost a lot of who you are but it still contains the essence that is you even though it’s just sounds or symbol. The really interesting thing is when you project your essence one more level to the 0 dimension. Now projection states that the essence of you must still be true. Unless the science and maths are not the same thing? Or maybe the impossible is true after all?
The crazy thing about the 0D is that infinity and 0 are the same thing! Is this the essence of everything?
