**1. **** ****One of three mutually-orthogonal directions in which an object may face.**

**2. **** ****One of three lines or edges that forms a vertex or corner.**

**The three dimensions of ****Physics are ****called length, width, and height, ****with the convention that ****height**** **

**is typically oriented parallel with the direction of gravity of the celestial body used as ****reference and**** **

**width****, with the observer's horizon.**** Dimensions**** should under no circumstances be ****confused with **

**coordinates**** (****longitude, latitude, and altitude) ****or with ****vectors**** (****depth, breadth, ****and ****elevation).**

**In Science, ****dimensions**** are static concepts. They have two properties: direction and orthogonality.**** **

**There is no such thing as a ****dimension**** without the other two. Whenever we talk about ****width****, ****we are **

**implicitly alluding to length and height****.**

**In the religion of Mathematical Physics, ****dimensions**** are ****treated as ****dynamic**** concepts****. ****The **

**dimensions**** of Mathematics have magnitude, ****but ****lack**** direction. Direction is conceptually static and **

**'made' of a single piece (i.e.continuous).**** The '****dimensions****' of ****M****ath are segmented, meaning that they **

**are composed of countless numbers. You cannot reconcile ***segmented*** with ***direction***! The idiots of **

**Mathematics are ****referring to**** number lines**** and calling them 'dimensions.'**** Number lines fit the **

**description**** of what the mathematicians are talking about****: no direction and segmented. ****Now you **

**know**** how the idiots of ****relativity**** converted ***time*** into a '****dimension****.'**** **
