Now imagine that the paper is bent, almost crumpled, except that there are no folds, only curves. Two places on the paper could be very close to each in 3D space, but a long way apart for creatures restricted to the 2D paper. If a neutrino were to jump out of its 2D constriction, hop across the 3D gap, and reappear in the 2D world, it might appear to a flatlander to have teleported a long way.

Now add some dimensions. Make visible space-time 4D, and bend it in a higher dimensional space. Places that appear far away to us might be, in the higher-dimensional sense, quite close. That could be a cause of interesting things.
And these things are testable, even if not very easily.

This is excellent. You should have your own show. Owen and I would watch it.

Make that 4 - at least once, anyway.

And there's Derek. I bet your explanation of everything would be non fattening.

I previously advised Julian to host health-based reality TV show called "Stop eating pies you fat b*****d!" - I think the pilot show is almost ready to roll out on Channel 5 later this year.
