Default Heim Theory/Device

I started reading John Shirley's Aliens book, Steel Egg, and I was surprised to see that he's added some real science to the Alien universe: The Heim Device.

He says that the ships in the Alien universe are powered with such a drive.

You can read about Heim Theory just by doing a google, but here are two links that I read:

ON GIZMODO

AT THE REGISTER IN THE UK



This Gizmodo article says this....

Quote:
Enough of a magnetic field will not just pop a spaceship out of a gravitational pull, but out of regular, three-dimensional space itself. By going into higher dimensional space, a ship or person might hop from one place to another, traveling, to ordinary four-dimensional eyes, faster than light.

The ship translate into another dimension? Does that not remind you of a certain favorite RPG set in the Far Future?
