Let me generalize the Niederberger-Hansen conjecture...

If you take a snapshot of the universe at an instant in time, then, in that snapshot, every dimension of every object or collection of objects will be a transcendental number.

Another way to say this is that you can never pick *the* instant in time where any dimension is algebraic.
