Recommended Reading  -  from Harvard physics professor Lisa Randall, and her article "The Case for Extra Dimensions" in the latest issue of Physics Today magazine (July 2007, page 80), where she writes: "Extra dimensions can have implications for the world we see, and they can explain phenomena that seem utterly mysterious when viewed from the perspective of a three-dimensional observer."  [ Online, go to: ]

Randall says that the Large Hadron Collider, scheduled for startup next year, will prove  -  within the next five years  -  that there exists an extra dimension associated with gravity, and which explains why gravity is the weakest of the four fundamental forces (because it is very strong in an alternate-dimensional realm, called a "brane", and dissipates most of its energy in that realm, instead of in ours).

I personally contend that gravity is also faster-than-light, and is therefore a tachyonic force, which hypothesis is actually consistent with Randall's theory (she has published a book about her gravity theory).  And I predict that confirmation of Randall's ideas, by experiments carried out with the Large Hadron Collider, will lead physicists to the very same conclusion.  They will be compelled to admit that the search for the quanta of gravity and the search for tachyons is one in the same search.  And that, of course, will have profound impacts on cosmology, and on our understanding of life, the universe, and everything.
