Never heard that explicitly stated before.

In the science shows it is always implied that 1 and 2D are a given, are a fact, and it is only the higher dimensions that are hypothetical.

Perhaps Stephen Hawking and friends should have spent all this time focusing on trying to find 2D first, because it seems to me that as soon as you can establish that, then higher dimensions automatically fall into place.

But there doesn't seem to be any way to objectively verify it; the building blocks of 3D space only exist as abstractions of the mind.
