The exciting new Vanishing Dimensions theory spawns lots of speculation for me. For instance, if it's true that space, time, and energy are intimately connected, a bit like conjugated variables, it would explain vacuum energy. Presumably if a fourth spatial dimension really is opening at the largest scale, it would have lower vacuum energy.
Vanishing Dimensions would also explain why the universe is quantized at small scale. If the texture of 3D space is 1D space fractally-twisted in expanded time, such a structure would demand discreet quanta rather than infinite smooth analog energy phenomena.
What do you think?
