# How Many "Dimensions" Are There?

We live in a world of 3 dimensions, some say 4. And in quantum physics, there are possibly many many more dimensions. My friend and I debate about Michyo Koku's theory of 13 dimensions. My friend says there are 26 dimensions because every dimension has a mirror 2 x 13 = 26. I say its 13 squared, not 13 x 2. Buddhists believe there are 10 worlds of 30 realms in every moment. What do you think?

why do you think each dimension has a mirror?

everything has two sides, maybe more. I think the dimensions expand exponentially.

sure everything has two sides, i have a front and a back but space may be the exception to the rule. how do we know space has either a front or a back? i have a front and a back and you have a front and a back does the distance between us have a front and a back because we do?

Space is a pretty weird thing. Its said to spiral, contract, expand, and also have parallels. So if there are parallels, this is the mirror (other side).

What's the reasoning behind your saying it's 13 squared? If there's a mirror of each dimension, that allows for 1a, 1b, 2a, 2b, 3a, 3b,... and will add up to 26.
