Movie “INTERSTELLAR” and Theoretical Physicist, Lisa Randall / 映画『インターステラー』と宇宙物理学者リサ・ランドール


On the door of the cover of the popular theoretical physicist Lisa Randall’s “Knocking Heaven’s Door” (2013), she is one of the leading-edge questers for Surplus Dimension, we can read several words like “What does it mean to be Science? What is Higgs Particle? What is Dark Matter? Is it possible to make a Black Hole? And we are living in Surplus Dimension?” I think this is a nice catch copy by a combination of really skilled questions, which evokes the readers’ willingness to buy and invites them.

最先端の余剰次元の探求者の一人である理論物理学者リサ・ランドールの『宇宙の扉をノックする』(2013)の表紙の扉には、「科学するとはどういうことか? ヒッグス粒子は何か? 暗黒物質は? ブラックホールは作れるのか? そして私たちは異次元にも住むのか?」と書かれている。実に巧みな質問の組合せによるキャッチコピーで、これで読者の購買意欲を喚起し、誘っているのである。


Because, if we read it carefully, the question other than the last “We are living in Surplus Dimension?” is a “Scientific Question“, but this question is different. But, this last non-scientific question invites ordinary people’s interest and ignites purchasing will.



In this book, Lisa Randall answered to one choreographer that “the influence by Surplus Dimension on physical phenomena is infinitely small, so if we are receiving it, we could already see its effects” to the choreographer’s question of “I know you study Surplus Dimension, please teach me does Surplus Dimension influences the movement of humans body?”.



For me, this exchange is interesting. Because, her answer also leaves the possibility that if its observation accuracy increases dramatically in the near future “its effect may be observed“. And if it comes up with a case where the effect is demonstrated, can she admit it honestly? Because she confessed in the previous work “Warped Passages” (2007) that she believed its existence before “Demonstration” in her verification work about Surplus Dimension, in short she belongs to a next generation type as a scientist.

私には、このやり取りが面白い。それは、彼女の答え方が、近い将来観測精度が飛躍的にアップするなら「その効果が観測されるかも知れない」という可能性も残しているからだ。そして、もしその効果が実証される事態になる場合には、彼女なら素直に認めるのではないか? 彼女は前著『ワープする宇宙』(2007)において、余剰次元の検証作業の中で、「実証」よりも先にその存在を「信じている」ことを告白した次世代型の科学者であるからである。


Christopher Nolan’s movie “Interstellar” (2014) is a work that expresses the scene that Surplus Dimension affects Four-Dimensional World. This movie is like a picture for Lisa Randall’s Surplus Dimension Theory. The featured scene is a scene where the hero returned to a nostalgic room 30 years later when he departed to the universe to reunite with his daughter.  The hero contacts from Surplus Dimension called “4 dimensional hypercube TESARACT” where time and space expand and shrink, and the daughter lives in the same our Four-Dimensional World.



In the movie, the two worlds are connected via “Bookshelf” of this room as an intermediary. Father moved the books and the watch from behind and gave a signal, both of them “daughter when small” and “daughter who grew up as a physicist” both feel “Father” sensitively. Finally, the grown daughter notices that the watch on the bookshelf carved “Cipher“. Then, she could solve the secret of gravity from the cipher and could success in launching a big space colony near Saturn. This is a story that human beings who were about to die on the diseased Earth were relieved by migrating to space colony.



In this movie, the theoretical physicist Kip Thorne who was awarded the Nobel prize served as a science consultant and became a big topic after the appearance of the black hole by the latest scientific knowledge was portrayed. But, there is no detailed explanation about TESARACT which is the most important, which is regarded as a space connected to all the times of the Earth’s past, present and future, which arrived after the hero was absorbed by this black hole. Although TESARACT is in contact with our Four-Dimensional World through a bookshelf as one of Surplus Dimensions.



Why the time at TESARACT connected to the earth’s time? The hero entered in TESARACT by being absorbed by the black hole, how did he come out from TESARACT? Also, can he enter in TESARACT again? Is there no physical change due to entering and leaving TESARACT? The effectiveness of TESRACT is expected to be enormous for the humans, but what kind of benefit can we imagine?

なぜ、テサラクトでは、地球の時間と連結しているのか? 主人公はブラックホールに吸収されることでテサラクトに入ったが、どうやってテサラクトから出てきたのか? また、再度テサラクトに入ることは出来るのか? ブラックホールに吸収されるだけで何もしなくてもそれは可能になるのか? テサラクトへの出入りによる身体の変化はないのか? テサラクトの有効性は人類にとり莫大であると予想されるが、どんな利益として想像されるだろうか?


I think about Surplus Dimension including these questions as one “Hypothesis” or “Story” as follows.

TESARACT is one of Surplus Dimensions where time and space freely stretch and shrink, but there are many Surplus Dimensions adjoin to our Four-Dimensional World other than TESARACT. In Surplus Dimension that I perceive “They – The Dead, Lost Animals, Aliens” live as close to “They” who appear in “Interstellar”, 




And, this Surplus Dimension is composed of substances different from substances including Higgs boson and dark matter constituting Four-Dimensional World. Those who live in Four-Dimensional World can have a “Mind” with continuity in this Surplus Dimension after their death. But, since the substance is different, the body is also different, so it seems to be completely different from the other’s point of view. Only the principal understands the identity. Even “They” who live in Surplus Dimension, other than their own, don’t know how they were in Four-Dimensional World.



In order for us living in Four-Dimensional World to move to Surplus Dimension, we need to discover the “Boundary” in Four-Dimensional World, and we need to occur “Saturation of Mind and Body = Catharsis” there. If we can move, we will have a different body, live a different time from Four-Dimensional World, and we can move space freely. Also we can make a contact to Four-Dimensional World from Surplus Dimension. If we want to return to Four-Dimensional World it will be OK to stop “Saturation”.



Why “They – The Dead, Lost Animals, Aliens” which I perceive could move to Surplus Dimension? Because they experienced “Death” that is close to “Saturation”. They are living with same mind when they had lived in Four-Dimensional World, and with different body. But, they can’t return to Four-Dimensional World. Because they lost body that they kept it in Four-Dimensional World. Me too, if i die in Four-Dimensional World even if I can move to Surplus Dimension but I can’t return to Four-Dimensional World. Just I only can send “Signal” to Four-Dimensional World.



The hero of “Interstellar” was able to move to TESARACT because it fell into the black hole and accidentally experienced a state close to “Saturation of mind and body”. He moved to TESARACT through the black hole, also he returned to Four-Dimensional World through the black hole again, but he can move to TERASACT again. Because, he couldn’t established its method deliberately. Therefore, he can’t establish the effective use of TESARACT as a property of the humans. He could only return to a planet where one colleague is left and continues their research in the last scene of the movie. Since the space colony have already been realized, so there is not much meaning to work there.



If I produce a sequel of “Interstellar”, at first let’s the hero develop a transportation to TESARACT. For its purpose, the humans intellectual maturity and the physical modification are also required. Then, let’s the hero solve all other Surplus Dimensions and develop a “New Way of Collaboration” with all existence living in Surplus Dimensions. This collaboration will be the arrival of new opportunities, this will give us the unknown possibilities of space development by the humans more than space colony which only allows the migration of earthlings.
