Physicists--and engineers and economists and anyone who uses more than the most
trivial math, for that matter--most certainly do use ten or more dimensions all
the time. On the other hand, I am pretty sure that super string theory calls
for less ten dimensions like up and down and left and right and so on. The
multidimensional systems that are used by physicists and engineers and
anthropologists do not refer to space/time dimensions.
