    Im sure you have heard of this kind of theory but i have to ask. Atoms are made up of empty space right? So supposedly we could push our atoms into that empty space and walk through a wall. I asked my physics teacher and he said about vibration timing needing to be in sync. But supposedly if we had some type of device made that could synchronize the wall and the person it would be possible.
    Could someone please tell me why it wouldn't work.


    just wondering

    For one thing, the wall isn't uniform, so it wouldn't have a nice timing that could be synched to. For another, I'm not sure it's possible to force a whole object to match some sync rate. Finally, I'm not sure the idea of an atomic synchronization rate even makes sense.

    Atoms are a whole lot of empty space, but at those scales the electromagnetic force is pretty strong and won't simply let other atoms pass through.

    Somebody has been reading WAY too many Flash comic books.

    There is one other way you could do it but it is probably enven more improprable. What you could do is go to another dimension were the wall isn't there cross the space and then go back to your dimension.
    Once a door is opened it never truly closes
    Once a door is closed new ones are open
    Two concepts forever intwined it is you decision to make them for the better or the worse.

    Being invisble lets you run away from pain
    Being visible gives you irraplacable experiences.

    we've got plenty of dimentions in our own universe curled up into little balls(according to string theory). however you most certainly couldn't travel through them. if you want to go around the wall rather than through it, you need a worm hole. i don't know the physics on it too well but i believe you need a very high mass object there, and two of those near each other(opposite sides of a wall) probably isn't the most stable situation. so frankly the door works best and if you don't have a door, it's easier to make one.
    physics: accurate, objective, boring
    chemistry: accurate if physics is accurate, slightly subjective, you can blow stuff up
    biology: accurate if chemistry is accurate, somewhat subjective, fascinating
    religion: accurate if people are always right, highly subjective, bewildering

    But what if it is a 15 inch thick wall made out of titanium alloys and isn't magentic for some reason. :P

    You do know that the so called 'empty space' between atoms is permeated with all sorts fo fields, which have an appreciable energy density, and which affect any mass and charge pssing through them?

    The empty space is a bit of a misnomer. These spaces are only empty of matter, they are chokablock with forces.

    these forces are exceptionally powerful in relative terms. Ramped up to our scale, they would be even more powerful than Neodymium Magnets


    proof in concept, if there's so much space in atoms, why don't the atoms float around through this causing the size of things to constantly fluctuate. (incidentally, if that space was removed, you'd be fairly close to a black hole) The forces that hold the atomic structure together and separate from other atoms prevent things 'moving through walls'



    Now on the concept of moving through walls there are a variety of methods
    the Easiest of course, is to open a door, or blow a hole in it

    Psuedoscientifically you could alter time, Either move though the 4th dimension to a point the wall no longer exists, step forwards, then move back to you're initial point


    We have no idea how these forces work, we know they are magnetic, and may be linked to gravity, but that's it, so it may be possible to disrupt these forces, if we could temporarily remove the forces (the wall would collapse for starters, unless we could nullify gravity) and step, as you say, litterally through the wall


    Now as is intrinsically obvious to humans (and innately used by most large lifeforms) more speed means more force, you will never be able to push as hard as you can punch
    This is the key to moving through walls (and size, to an extent) Tachyons are faster than light theoretical particles that, if existing, pass though matter at a substantial rate

    This is the Acadamy of Science! we don't need to 'prove' anything!
