Michael Laitman, On Quora: “How many dimensions exist?“
We live in an egoistic dimension, the quality of reception, where we have self-aimed desires and needs that we constantly try to fulfill.
Around us is a hidden dimension of an opposite quality: bestowal.
While living in this quality of reception, we are unaware of the quality of bestowal. If we could add this opposite quality to our receptive one, then we would be able to clearly and fully picture the world.
Moreover, even though we exist in the egoistic dimension of reception, we feel it only to a limited extent, and feel no connection at all to the dimension of bestowal.
Reception and bestowal are the only two dimensions that exist in the universe, and they both exist in relation to us, subjectively. If we reach a state where they complement each other, then we perceive n-dimensional space.
