    Well, 4 dimensional if you include time, 5 and more if you include the math describing the motions of particles in particle physics. Answer: It's the most immediately useful on a macro level. There are a lot of trains of thought on this. A common belief throughout history is that we have always had extra sensory perception, but only started to lose it as we became more intelligent and started to more intrinsically rely on logic to guide our reality instead of instinct for survival. You'll see this theme frequently in literature, whether the author or the audience really believes it or not. Side note: A good example of a contradiction would be Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author and creator of Sherlock Holmes. Holmes was a master of logical deduction, whereas Doyle himself was in fact a spiritualist :)

    Space in this universe is only 3 dimensional. So they is what we see and experience. If more dimensions from string theory exist, they are far too small to see.

    According to Cheech Marin, you can see stuff in 4D if you take enough hits.

    Maybe dreams are a manifestation of higher dimensions.

    Nature, God or whatever you want to call it, only gives you what you need. Nature is very conservative and does not give you three eyes if two will do or three arms for the same reason. It is quite necessary for us to have 3d as we need to judge depth. It is not necessary to see in any higher dimensional resolution just as it is not necessary to have two noses

    No evolutionary pressure.

    • By the way, when I call you a wanker, I mean it in the sense of an unpleasant, useless person, not because I imagine that you are actually capable of masturbating to orgasm given your advance age, feeble disposition, and that even your weak hand and saggy nutsack must hate one another.

    Because it would freak most people out. 

    Most people just about manage 3 but are no good when time gets involved, and if you suggest moving through your own lifetime relative to time most people would freak out and mess it up.

    I have looked back in time, slowed it down, and it is a little confusing, but also interesting. It is like part of you is still in the present, but also in a point in the past. It's a bit disorientating.

    because the sensation is a response from memory
