    Nachmanide's 10 Dimensions?

    I read somewhere years ago that Nachmanides had anticipated "String Theory" physics and the possibility of more than 4 dimensions by centuries through studying the first chapter of Genesis. He came to the conclusion that there were 4 dimensions that were "knowable" and 6 that were "unknowable". The basis for this was the fact that in Genesis 1 there are a total of 10 times where the text says "And God said". Each time God spoke, a new dimension was created. I have tried to find an online text of Nachmanide's writing on this topic to find out how he decided that 4 dimensions were knowable and 6 were not, but have not had any luck. Does anyone know where I can find this?

    While reading another thread recently, I came across a statement that some physicists had come to the conclusion that in order for Jesus to walk through walls, appear and disappear at will, and at the same time be able to eat food with His disciples, He had to be functioning in at least 11 dimensions, and that some physicists believe there could be up to 26 dimensions. I have no idea how they deduced this and wouldn't understand it anyway, but the possibility of more than 10 dimensions made me think that maybe each dimension could be viewed a part of the "foundation" that creation is "based" on. Which lead me to wonder if maybe there aren't 12 or even 24 dimensions, since the bible speaks of the New Jerusalem having 12 foundations and 12 gates. In reading Genesis 1 again with this in mind I noticed that there are 2 places where God speaks the word "bedel" or "divide", on days two and four. (There are other times in this passage where the word bedel appears in the text but it is not a direct quote that the Lord is speaking) So if you start with 10 times that God speaks, and take two of those instances and divide them, you end up with 24 total.

    Also, sometimes when listing the "12" tribes, the bible splits the tribe of Joseph up into Ephraim and Manasseh and leaves out one of the other tribes in order to still have twelve tribes listed. So there are 13 candidates to choose from. The same thing is true of the number of apostles, so are 26 dimensions possible? Interesting that the letters of the Lord's name in Hebrew totals 26.

    I have no idea, but I just wanted to let you know that this intrigued me and I am interested in knowing the answer to this as well.

    Howdy Silence,

    Hugh Ross of "reasons to believe" wrote about it and string theory
    about 30 years ago.
    If I remember right ,Jesus Christ had to pass through 6 dimensions
    when passing through the wall when he appeared to some of his disciples.

    He may still have a site called "reasons to believe.com "

    If you can't find it, I can dig it up myself and throw out a couple of paragraphs anyway.

    I think he said there where 11 dimensions referenced in the bible.

The Ten Sephiroth originated long before his time, and they don't have anything to do with string theory anyway. The only thing they have in common is the number 10, which is the number of fingers on two hands, the number of commandments, etc. I don't see any connection with modern physics.
