‘A Wrinkle in Time’ is probably right about multiple dimensions
Madeleine L’Engle’s acclaimed science fantasy novel, now a multi-million dollar film - ‘A wrinkle in Time’ tells the story of a young girl’s journey through space and time in search of her father. Although science fiction, L’Engle’s classic has strong roots in certain principles of Physics. The story is built around the idea that there are multiple dimensions that exist in the universe and the characters are able to take on inter-dimensional travel by entering a literal “wrinkle in space-time” — a portal known as a tesseract. So, is interdimensional travel ever going to become possible? And more importantly, do multiple dimensions even exist?
