The idiotlanguage that the mathematicians have invented has no bounds. For example, the mathematicians
have come up with the incongruous notion that a dimension is a property of space and that it is space that has
dimensions:
“ dimension: a property of space… a measure of spatial extent.” [1]
“ Does Space Have More Than 3 Dimensions?... What happens if we
add yet another dimension to space? …we live in a universe with,
at most, three spatial dimensions…” [2]
“ The least number of independent coordinates required to specify
uniquely the points in a space.” [3]
How can space have dimensions when it doesn't have shape? Even under the mathematical definition of
dimension, how do you locate a point on the which has no surface or body?
Of course, now and then you find mathematicians that say it like it is:
“ the number of coordinates needed to specify a point on the object.” [4]
“ the property of length, width, or depth of an object" (p. 61) [5]
Wolfram and the Mathematics Encyclopedia got this one right: length, width, and height comprise a property
of objects dubbed threedimensional.
I only see two problems:
• relativists give lip service to length, width, and height and explain everything
with coordinates
• this definition of dimension doesn't belong in encyclopedias of Mathematics.
So let's resolve this issue once and for all. If it were true that space has dimensions, we should be able to run
a simple thought experiment to verify this claim. Let's remove all matter from the Universe and leave you alone
with a ruler in empty space. The trick is for you to measure the width or the height of space! Will you be
measuring the property of space or of the ruler? How many numbers are needed to locate a space within
space?
Clearly dimensions are properties of objects and not of space. Why else would relativists resort to the
geometrical figures 'triangle' and ‘square’ as examples of the 2D? The mathematicians are using their
words inconsistently. They are in effect saying that a triangle is ‘a space’, whatever that is. In Physics, it
makes no sense to talk about the dimensions of a 'given' space. In Physics, space is nondimensional.
It is a physical object that has length, width, and height.
You're crazy, Bill! Tables and cubes
don't have length, width, and height. It is
space that has length, width and height!
In Mathematics, it is space and not the geometric figure which has dimensions

Sorry that we had to wake you up like this, Bill, but the mathematician urgently wants to measure the dimensions of space that you occupied.
