Dimensions other than the one we live in remain a mystery to human beings. So what do other dimensions look like? Here I give a simple introduction. Sakyamuni (Buddha Siddartha Guatama) proposed the theory of “three thousand worlds”. He mentioned that one grain of sand contains three thousand worlds, much the same as our own.
So what does a world in a grain of sand look like? Actually, we refer here to a world in a microscopic dimension. Not only does a grain of sand contain many worlds, other materials also contain many worlds. I have seen such a world.
I picked up a small piece of wood and looked at it closely. All of a sudden, a scene appeared to me. I saw an airport inside. In the airport, there were runways and airplanes. In the sky above, some airplanes were descending to the ground. There was a helicopter, similar to helicopters in our world, spiraling above the airport. It looked like it had just taken off. What was strange was that there was a large tortoise as big as the helicopter flying behind it. The shape of this tortoise was similar to the ones we know in our world, except its tail was larger. The tortoise could also fly in the sky.
Master Li said in “Zhuan Falun” that in each sweat pore there is a city with trains and automobiles running inside. This is a description of microscopic worlds. In “Zhuan Falun Fa Explication” he elaborates further:
“Sakyamuni mentioned that in a grain of sand there were three thousand worlds. His theory was that in our Milky Way there are three thousand planets with living beings of wisdom like our human race. He said that one grain of sand contains three thousand worlds. If what he said is true, think about it, everyone, at the microscopic level, a grain of sand is as rich as the Milky Way. It contains human societies. Then, if we keep on searching, does that grain of sand contain rivers and sand? Then does each grain of sand in those worlds still contain three thousand worlds? Then, does each grain of sand in the sands of those worlds still contain three thousand worlds? Keeping on searching, Sakyamuni found that there was no end to it. Humans can only see the truth of the universe by avoiding using our human eyes, which are made of molecules. The higher the level he reaches, the more microscopic matter he can see in the microscopic realm, the larger he can see in the macroscopic realm. Sakyamuni neither saw the smallest particle of the universe nor saw the largest boundary of the universe. Therefore he said in his old age, “It is so huge that there is no exterior,” he did not know how big the universe was. “It is so tiny that there is no interior.” It is so small that he cannot see the bottom.” “Zhuan Falun Fa Explication”(unofficial translation)
In our space, materials are composed of molecules. Below the molecular level are atoms, nuclei, protons, neutrons, electrons, quarks and the smallest particles known to man, neutrinos, which are still, in fact, far away from the smallest particles that exist. Isn’t the scene of electrons rotating around the nucleus similar to that of the earth rotating around the sun? Actually, they are controlled by the same mechanism. Are there beings living on the electrons? If one’s celestial eye reaches a certain level, one can see. At present, people describe the motion of electrons as electron clouds. This is because they do not have any equipment to monitor the orbits of electrons. Our equipment is all made of molecules, therefore it cannot see the beings living on electrons. The third eyes of cultivators are made of microscopic particles of high energy, therefore they can observe those scenes.
Actually, the “three thousand worlds” that Sakyamuni mentioned refer to only a part of the horizontal structure of the universe, in which living beings are at a low level, or, in the shell of the universe. The structure of the universe is very complicated. It includes some other systems. The worlds of Buddha and Gods do not exist in this system; they are in the spaces of vertical system. Those worlds are composed of more microscopic particles and higher energy. They are incomprehensible to human beings unless they cultivate. I have also seen such a world as this. It’s magnificence cannot be described using human language. I experienced what Master Li describes, “Its infinite beauty and wonder are beyond words. Myriads of lights and colors dazzle the two eyes.” At a certain level, the materials look like they are made of diamond, there are decorated archways and palace-like architecture…
A cultivator collects high-energy matter from the vertical space. When one’s body is completely replaced by the high-energy matter, he can pass through this dimension. I have also had such an experience. One morning at the end of 1999 after I woke up and prepared to practice the Falun Dafa exercises, my body suddenly levitated to one meter above the bed. I stayed in the air for quite a while. Then I started to float in the air and passed through a wall. I then crossed back through the wall and went through another. Suddenly I sped up and entered another dimension, moving around inside and seeing the beings that live in that dimension.
These experiences are only the manifestations of Dafa at a very low level. However, to modern science it is already inconceivable. About this, Master Li states the following, “The guiding ideology for today’s human science is confined only to this physical world in its research and development, as a subject will not be studied until it is recognized—it follows such a path. As for phenomena that are intangible and invisible in our dimension, but objectively exist and are reflected into our physical dimension as concrete manifestations, people dare not approach them, dismissing them as unknown phenomena.” (Lunyu)
The only way to understand these phenomena is through the Buddha Fa. “Throughout the ages, only 'the Buddha Fa' has been able to perfectly provide a clear exposition of humanity, every dimension of material existence, life, and the entire universe.”(Lunyu)
