The Science Behind the 5th Dimension of Consciousness

If you are interested in spirituality or human evolution, you might have heard that all the galaxy is ascending to the fifth dimension of consciousness, a higher level of the human experience and a different way to experience existence itself.

The 5th dimension is often described metaphysically as the plane of unconditional love, manifestation, heaven for some, the unity of the mind and the heart, the dimension where we are all one and whole.  I understand that might be difficult to grasp for analytical people and it might sound a little too “woo-woo” for the non-believers but there are actually scientific theories behind it. Theories that have been taken as truths and reshuffled to create the principles of 5d consciousness.

In the beginning it was Einstein and the theory of relativity

With the theory of relativity, Einstein simply tried to prove that absolute frames of reference do not exist in space because 1. an entity’s velocity is only measurable if compared to something else and 2. the speed of light is a constant regardless of the speed of the person who measures it. To prove his point, Einstein had to introduce the concept of the 4th dimension (space-time) and express this theory in the mathematical equation E= MC2.

The existence of a fourth dimension, opened up the doors, 100 years later, to many others. Still to this date, scientists do not agree in the actual number of dimensions that actually exist, some of them say 6, some others say 10, some more say “into infinity”.

Now, Quantum physics is not exactly my speciality but I will try to make it as simple as possible, for the sake of my own understanding as well.

The first attempt to incorporate the fifth dimension tying it up to the concept of electromagnetism was made by Einstein himself and his assistants Valentine Bargmann and Peter Bergmann who were really determined to find another dimension to justify the existence of the fourth one. In his theory of relativity, he basically suggested that space-time can bend and this distortion is perceived by large objects like Earth as gravity (so, does it actually mean that gravity is an illusion?!?). He also introduced the concept of gravitational waves, which are basically ripples in space and time created by violent energetic processes in the Universe travelling at the speed of light, which was proved and confirmed in 2015.

So, what is the 5th dimension?

“It is a dimension unseen by humans where the forces of gravity and electromagnetism unite to create a simple but graceful theory of the fundamental forces.”


It is a space human beings cannot see, with a different perception of space but identically multidimensional in “time” and compact.

Difficult to imagine with the human brain and this is exactly why the shift into 5d consciousness has become the core of the “spiritual” movement” (and pop culture: listen to 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝟓𝐭𝐡 𝐃𝐢𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧 | 𝐀𝐐𝐔𝐀𝐑𝐈𝐔𝐒 ♒︎ 𝐋𝐞𝐭 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐒𝐮𝐧𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐈𝐧) which sits right in between what science has been trying to prove as absolute truth in the last century and the natural evolution in human consciousness and of the galaxy.

What are the core teachings of the quantum mechanics that we take with us to “upgrade” in 5d consciousness from the inside out as higher beings?
  1. The fifth dimension is a statistical equilibrium where entropy is a constant.
    Basically, the unknown is the balance of the 5th dimension: the more we surrender to it, the more we are able to integrate into it.
  2. At each point in the fifth dimension, the universe in all time and space only takes on one classical configuration.
    Imagine to be in one place but in multiple times at the same time and imagine not to be able to predict what is going to happen for certain: a myriad of probabilities is what you are left with.
  3. The fifth dimension cannot be seen by the human eye.
    Which very simply means, either you believe in it or you don’t.
  4. The fifth dimension is beyond space and time.
    Let’s just accept that we don’t know everything, shall we?
  5. When it comes to the fifth dimension, the lines between science, imagination and metaphor can all get slightly blurred.
    Do you believe in Angels, in parallel universes, in Santa Claus coming down your chimney? Well, it is kind of the same thing and if you do, don’t question it.
    See point 3.

  1. Dear Paola,
    Since a ten year old science has always fascinated me. I had to choose a prize once and asked for The Wonder Book of Science. Since then I have read ever book that Stephen Hawking Hawkins. He sought after a unified theory, that combined general relativity with quantum mechanics. He was famous for his work on Black Holes (the opposite of Big Bang). He also used a graphic with a walnut and quoted Shakespeare’s Hamlet, ‘I could be bounded in a nutshell and call myself a king of infinite space.’ And this was in the 1600s!

    Multiple dimensions are a fascinating topic. By pure coincidence my latest Linkedin post actually referred to a ‘parallel Universe’. There is so much we do not know. Perhaps some sort of sixth sense, but is a parallel Universe a mirror-like reflection of our perception.

    You have prompted me to read one of Stephen Hawkins’ books again!

    Thank you, Paola
