typically obfuscating nondimensional analysis,

you twosome. space is clearly three-dimensional

for several applications (surveying & navigation e.g.),

and it is clearly "more complicated that that,"

for both interatomic & intergalactic processes,

hence the enormous efficacy of stringtheory

for appreciating the many "quantized" phenomena,

beginning with the Kaluza theory.

however, the "compactification to a string"

of Klein may not be necessary;

it is simply an abstuse math-speak;

it may not be "hidden variables," but

there are "hidden dimensionalities" or spaces,

at least in a formal sense.

it is not that Kaluza was wrong, it's just that

no-one knew how to treat of such dimensionality,

other than through phase-spaces (like Hamiltonians and

Lagrangians) -- with the notable exception

of quaternions, or "the first-get vector mechanics,

wherefrom we get *all* of the lingo thereof."
