There are numerous theories about the origin of the universe. The big bang theory is the most popular one. This subject is fascinating and encompasses physics and mathematics. Here we present the latest theory about the origin of the universe.

The latest theory about the origin of the universe is the answer to what is behind the universe. Scientists have recently debated that the 4th dimension is behind the universe. That’s the most logical explanation so far because the 4^{th} dimension exists everywhere and cannot be seen by us. As a comparison, we can invoke 2D and 3D dimensions. We live in 3D space and if we would see 2D space, we would see everything from above. The same thing is happening with 3D and 4D dimensions. If we live in 4D dimension, we will definitely see 3D dimension from above. That means we could see what is behind the universe.

Another comparison is the tangent in mathematics. If we go in a straight line from the same point in one direction for a very long or almost infinite time, in the end we will get back to the same spot where we started. That means the universe is finite and the 4^{th }dimension (4D) really exists.

Some scientists speculate about 5D and up to 10D or 15D dimensions. They could be right at some point, but it is a very basic theoretical construct for now. First, we need to ground, prove, and understand 4D dimension. After this, we could go further.
