Your quotes from H.P.Blavatsky and A.A.Bailey are excellent, but what's
their relation to science? As far as I know, observations supporting the
hypothesis of higher spatial dimensions do not exist (yet). Yes, there
are some theories based on the idea of 5- or 6-dimensional continuum
(like Kaluza-Klein theories) or even 11 dimensions (string models), but
all that remains on the level of science fiction, so it's better not to
use that stuff to draw parallels between theosophy and science.
