Abstract

Proposition: What dimensions and how many are fundamental is a matter of choice, custom and convenience, not of logical necessity. Limitation: This does not deal with how many and what fundamental entities are required to build a universe; it is simply a question of mensuration; how many and what independent dimensions shall (must) we use to express physical quantities unambiguously, and to make physical equations balance.
