typically obfuscating nondimensional analysis, you twosome. space is clearly threedimensional 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 mathspeak; 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 noone knew how to treat of such dimensionality, other than through phasespaces (like Hamiltonians and Lagrangians)  with the notable exception of quaternions, or "the firstget vector mechanics, wherefrom we get *all* of the lingo thereof."
