Summary Many of the problems in contemporary Mathematical Physics arise as a result of the inconsistent use of the strategic word dimension, a fact owing to the myriads of definitions used by different disciplines. By invoking several definitions within the same dissertation, the mathematicians are able to cover all the bases and weasel out of impossible situations. What is a dimension and why did the mathematicians have to concoct so many notions of this term? Does the word dimension as defined by the mathematicians have anything to do with Physics? Yet more fundamental, does it have anything to do with Mathematics? Here I explore the infamous dimension of Mathematics and argue that Mathematics has no use for genuine dimensions, coordinates, or vectors. For centuries, the mathematicians have used the words dimension, coordinate, and vector to refer to number lines.
