Question Mark Okay... do you get it?

http://www.veoh.com/videos/v589221QEEhaFwc

This is completely cube-safe, and no screaming zombies either. I'm curious as to how many people understand it.

Spoiler for BTW,:
we're taking up a collection to hire a hit man to take care of the guy who found this. So don't shoot the messenger... shoot the other guy


Spoiler for after you've watched it:
These should help bring your brain back, if needed...

or at least ease the pain

Oddly, yes, I do get it. I'm rather interested in that sort of thing, so I understood it.

Very, umm, interesting. I think they lost me somewhere shortly after the 5th. I know I was totally gone before the middle of the 6th. I outright gave up and closed the window when they got to the 7th.

Yeah, Like ds said. I'm very interested in that sort of thing, so I understood it.

If your physics calculations don't work without the existence of 10 or more dimensions, that doesn't mean there are 10 or more dimensions. It means your calculations are wrong.

And I say that with absolutely no knowledge on string theory whatsoever.

But...All possibilities are contained within the tenth dimension...

You know, you'd think there would be a point where these physicists would think to themselves "hmm, we've used layer after layer of mathematical solutions without having a basis in empirical data, maybe we just revaluate what we've done in the first place". Their ideas have simply become adhoc as is know in the philosophy of science. "hey something is wrong..." "I know, let's add another dimension!"

That said, the movie starts out nice but becomes speculative dribble once it hits 5.00m. It presupposes certain things about quantum physics and the 5th dimension which aren't necessarily true. I suppose this is another of those great examples of realism going bad.
