 Mar9 revised I don't understand what we really mean by voltage drop added 4 characters in body Mar9 comment I don't understand what we really mean by voltage drop @oyvey I think this will help. Mar9 revised I don't understand what we really mean by voltage drop expanded Mar8 comment I don't understand what we really mean by voltage drop It might help to look at the operation of a voltmeter. If you attempted to measure the voltage in a wire on two points at the same side of a resistor you would see no voltage indication. If you chose points on opposite sides of the resistor, would see a voltage difference. If you wanted to see the voltage in a wire relative to ground, you would put one probe on the wire and the other on a conductive point outside the circuit. As pointed out in several answers, the voltage is a measure of potential, nothing more. Mar8 comment Tangent bundles and $\mathbb{C}P^n$ and $\mathbb{C}^n$ @dmckee I honestly don't think its developed well enough to be a pure math question, I would probably rather delete than to see it be excoriated by some of the pure mathematicians. If you think it will migrate, I would like the opportunity to delete.

The thought is concerned with compactified spaces on a manifold. My articulation is still being improved. Tangent spaces have a definite constraint to the number of dimensions as they are directly tied to the underlying manifold. The alternate question that I am trying to understand is if tangent spaces are by definition non-compact, then why not assume spacetime is not a tangent space to some compactified manifold? There are math elements, but I am considering in context of a string theory.

Mar4 comment Tangent bundles and $\mathbb{C}P^n$ and $\mathbb{C}^n$ @Qmechanic Nothing in particular, however, I wanted to group the coordinates appropriately and so I borrowed $\big|$ from the idea of superspace notation.
