I 300f
Three-dimensional / 3D / Barrow: that we collect three dimensions is related to the natural laws, which are available in these dimensions - e.g. in rooms with an even number of dimensions waves propagate with more than just the basic velocity - then the signals are distorted - I 302 only in 3-dimensional space the number of dimensions is equal to the axes about which several rotations are possible - therefore chemical life will hardly have evolved in other spaces.
