1.       Any of three mutually-orthogonal, extrinsic and imaginary straight lines that qualitatively describe
    the location of one object with respect to others.

    The names of the three coordinates are: longitude, latitude, and altitude, with the convention that
    altitude is typically oriented parallel with the direction of gravity of the celestial body used as
    reference and latitude, with the observer's horizon.

    In Science, coordinates are static concepts. They have two properties: direction and orthogonality.
    There is no such thing as a coordinate without the other two. Whenever we talk about altitude,
    longitude and latitude are implied.

    In the religion of Mathematical Physics, coordinates are exclusively dynamic concepts. The
    coordinates of Mathematics have magnitude, but no direction. Direction is conceptually static and
    'made' of a single piece (i.e.continuous). The 'coordinates' of math are segmented, meaning that they
    are composed of countless numbers. You cannot reconcile segmented with direction!  The idiots of
    Mathematics are talking not about coordinates, but about number lines. Number lines fit the
    description: no direction and segmented. Now you know how the idiots of Mathematics converted
    time into a 'coordinate', which somehow became a 'dimension.'
