I had a dream that troubled me.
A hotel I had visited about 7 years ago in Beijing, China was literally upside down with its top floors overturned to be on its bottom. This was an over 10-stories skyscraper hotel. Its elevator systems overturned such that 629 had become 926, my supposed room number in the dream.
As I struggled to understand what that could have meant, I am met with a more obvious question: what is reality?
What makes spiritual spiritual? Dreams dreams and resounding speeches real?
I remember a long time ago when my best friend tried to illustrate dimensions to me. His illustration was perhaps one of the most resonating to me in explaining the concept. I’ll try to express the same illustration and hope that you get it too.
Now imagine an infinitely tiny dot that you somehow managed to communicate with.
Many can argue that the dot is zero dimension, some may go as far as stretching it to two dimensions cos it must have some height, no matter how nanoscale and some can keep playing with the idea that is three-dimensional. At least viruses are nothing but tiny nanoscale dots too. Well, for the sake of this illustration, I want you to consider the small dot as zero dimension.
For some reason, if you extended the dot to a line, in mathematics, you will say you have added another dimension and it is now one-dimensional object. If you asked the dot by your magical communications strategy to see the one line, the truth is, it might be a difficult task because you are asking it to see beyond itself, a dot may not see a line! Is the line real? Yes! Is the dot real? Yes! Does the line’s dimension supercede that of the dot? For the sake of this reasoning, yes! As a consequence, the line is of a supernatural order to the dot.
You can extend this same concept from a line (1-D) to a rectangle or square (2-D) or from the rectangle to a cube or table, both 3-D a.k.a three dimension. Asking the lower dimensions to observe the higher dimensions is simply a feat.
I perhaps understood that whatever reality we are in right now or that we concoct during our sleep, is real. My inability to observe a higher dimension may perhaps be the evidence of my death as chronicled in the account of scripture’s Genesis. Regardless, it is my reality and I choose to live fully in my reality, trusting the help of higher dimensions I can’t explain or fully observe.
Maybe this is an extreme discussion for some but this is really an invite to first accept the possibility of higher realms and your own reality.
It may also help you to see why Jesus could be Man and God at the same time. A cube (3-dimensioned) can be a 2-D object of simply a square once drawn on paper depending on the perspective or where you’re looking at it from.
Really, do you see why some who say this earth might be our heaven that we are currently messing up could be right? To see that creation awaits the manifestation of sons of God, whatever reality that may be? Reference to Romans chapter 8.
Personally, I believe I see, hear and perceive higher dimensions whenever I interact with energy in any form, be it social energy, electrical energy, magnetic energy or the sorts. The truth is whatever reality we observe or do not observe is real and out there. There’s more than meet the eye!
My name is Wonuola Olawale and I believe in energy as a dimension that remains underexplored! *winks*
There’s more than meets the eye…

It’s funny how this connects easily with my brain. I have personally struggled with the belief in other dimensions. I sometimes even wonder if all the answers we seek lies in understanding the inter connectivity with other dimensions. Man has explored million of kilometers through intergalactic traveling, who knows how much of the galaxy we can explore if we can travel within it “dimensionally”
