A new paper is out, hep-th/0003061, which further develops the model
of gravity operating from a fifth large dimension. They model black
holes on the 5-D brane as an exact Reissner-Nordstrom solution, but
without electric charge being required. Gravitational forces
emanating from the 5th dimension are shown to surge tidally, causing
localized variations in gravitational scalar.

Chirality does not exist in 2n+1 dimensional space-times (or 2n
dimensional spaces). How do your rationalize the empirical existence
of asymmetric centers (occupied by atoms - amino acids - or not -
helicenes, binaphthyls) with the existence of five dimensions total?

The fifth dimension is the domain of gravitation, not the domain of
particles which are confined to the 4D space-time manifold. The 4D
manifold can be modelled as a surface on the gravitational dimension,
which topologically undulates in response both to its own internal
dynamics and the localized 4D mass concentrations. Results: "great
walls", "great voids", gravitational plateaus underlying spiral
galaxies which explains their rotational profiles, gravitational
depressions underlying elliptical galaxies which allow their stars to
mingle freely as water molecules do in a puddle, etc.

A more succint answer than my other one is that the 5th
(gravitational) dimension is not a 4th spatial dimension, but rather a
2nd time dimension. The transforms between gravitational force and
rate of time flow are well-known parts of GR. This is elegantly
modelled by the 5th dimension being a time dimension.
