Hi Eleanor

Your 'other dimension set' is an example of 'other worlds' or
maybe 'parallel existences' ideas - my reference was to the
classical 'Flatland' concept of a single universe with some of
its inhabitants having length, width and height, but _others_
inhabiting a portion (or majority) of the universe where they
have length, width, height and another unknown dimension. In
that situation the three dimensional beings would only see what
a four-dimensional visitor wanted them to see.

However, as I said before I don't believe that situation applies
- and here's a small diagram (from John D Barrow's 'The
Constants of Nature' p. 222) showing the reasons why just three
dimensions are required for the observed universe, at
www.perceptions.couk.com/uef/imgs/timespace.gif

I.e. with any less or any more than three dimensions we wouldn't
be alive.

And in any case, there seems to be a basic relationship, first
noticed by Kant, between the number of physical dimensions and
the acting-ratio of gravity: in our three dimensional universe
gravity acts as inverse square of distance, with 4 dimensions
gravity would act as the inverse cube.
