they totally did. they were WRONG, but they said em.Boomer wrote: That's like saying "Man will never fly." Or "The sound barrier cannot be broken." No serious scientist ever said these things.
but i thought it was disproven that objects from different dimensions could transfer over from one dimension to another? they cease to exist in the same manner in different dimensions!
here, i'll set up a little thought-experiment: draw two points on a piece of paper. point A and point B, and make em about 5" or so apart. to get from point A to B, you need to travel 5" at least, in a straight line. since this is theoretically two-dimensional space (although technically the graphite makes a 3 dimensional protrusion, but let's forget about it for now. we're limiting ourselves to the second dimension. ANYWAYS, in second dimensional space, the shortest distance is 5", and our speed is capped at the speed of light (let's just say it's 1" per second for now), meaning that it can't possibly take less than 5 seconds to get from A to B.
but whuh-oh! three dimensions! let's make a "dimensional jump" (or at least simulate one). fold the paper over so that points A and B are touching. in third dimensional space, they are right next to eachother, while in second dimensional space, they're still 5" away. at an inch a second, you can go from A to B instantaneously, right? WRONG. your objects are still in the second dimension, and something trapped in the two dimensional world (dimensions of length and width) would STILL have to travel the distance in 3rd dimensional space. regardless of how little distance this is, the distance is still along the Z axis, whereas 2nd dimensional travel is limited to X and Y.
