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

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.
