The Daily Galaxy, Dec. 23, 2011:
A group of three researchers from the High-Energy Accelorator Research Organization (KEK), Shizuoka University and Osaka University has for the first time revealed the way our universe was born with 3 spatial dimensions from 10-dimensional superstring theory in which spacetime has 9 spatial directions and 1 temporal direction, obtained by numerical simulation on a supercomputer.
According to "Standard Model" cosmology, the universe originated in an explosion from an invisibly tiny point. This theory is strongly supported by observation of the cosmic microwave background and the relative abundance of elements. However, a situation in which the whole universe is a tiny point exceeds the reach of Einstein's general theory of relativity, and for that reason it has not been possible to confirm how the universe actually originated....
Huh. What a "coincidence."
Judaism's ancient mystical teachings, collectively known as the Kabbalah, include a fundamental concept of the true essence of Gd as infinite and unknowable, or Ein Sof (literally, without end), which interacts with the universe not directly, but through ten "attributes," "manifestations," "emanations" [ or dimensions? ] of this essence.
These are known as the Ten Sefirot, customarily represented in a diagram such as this.
"At their fundamental level, the Ten Sefirot are a step-by-step process illuminating the Divine plan as it unfolds ... in our world."
I don't profess to know even a thimbleful of the complex cosmology delineated in Kabbalah, but I can comfortably offer you this "unequivocal statement" by way of Dr. Gerald Schroeder:
.... Nachmanides ... explains that the Hebrew letters Ayin, Resh, Bet ― the root of "erev" ― is chaos. Mixture, disorder. That's why evening is called "erev", because when the sun goes down, vision becomes blurry. The literal meaning [of "there was evening"] is "there was disorder."
The Torah's word for "morning" ― "boker" ― is the absolute opposite. When the sun rises, the world becomes "bikoret", orderly, able to be discerned. That's why the sun needn't be mentioned until Day Four. Because from erev to boker is a flow from disorder to order, from chaos to cosmos.
That's something any scientist will testify never happens in an unguided system. Order never arises from disorder spontaneously and remains orderly. Order always degrades to chaos unless the environment recognizes the order and locks it in to preserve it. There must be a guide to the system. That's an unequivocal statement.

.... According to the teachings of esoteric Judaism all knowledge, both spiritual and material wisdom, originally coexisted in a seamless unity within a higher dimension. Together these two modes of wisdom compromised a larger, all encompassing Universal Torah (Torah meaning "Teachings"). A collapse, however, ensued in which the database of all knowledge split itself into "spiritual" and "material" planes of existence. Thus, we have the basis for the historical conflict between "religion" and "science".
Yet, any given mystical or technological truth can only be one of two sides of the same piece of puzzle. Thus, the material world is also a mode of spirituality, only externalized and concretized. The ultimate truth is not revealed through the supra-natural alone nor is it only discovered through scientific development -- it is more than both.
Both forms of wisdom are destined to reunite with each other. Perforce this is stimulating a worldwide paradigm shift in consciousness. This stage of global evolution is the messianic age that is central to the teachings of esoteric as well as to traditional Judaism.
