I know you did not ask me, but you will be lucky if anyone else answers you in my thread. There is in reality a one dimensional whole and the thing that we call dimensions , XYZt are imaginable lines in space and not of space.
The answer is 1.
I agree completely, though I would suggest the need for all of us to re-think the use of the word "dimension" in this context, given it is all-or-nothing
with respect to existence as we know it
. We have devised the convention of width, height and depth for practical purposes. Thank you for relieving me of typing an explication.
In my opinion, any understanding of the referents
in the common usage, in any discussion of 1, 2, 3 dimensions (ignoring any additional for the moment) leads to an "all or nothing" or "all in one" conclusion. It is inescapable in my view.
Thanks for your reply. I can tell you that I've not met anyone who knows "the answer is 1."
Are you aware I'm on the verge of being banned, probably by "Buffy", as I type? In that eventuality, it's been a delight to meet you.
