Abstract

It is commonly recognized that paleontological and other biological data have numerous qualitative dimensions as well as some quantitative ones; but the fact that the latter include up to 24 or more distinct spatiotemporal dimensions has not been pointed out. Paleontologists can hold these in mind simultaneously, without effort or confusion, by virtue of these dimensions' hierarchical logical arrangement. This observation may point to a useful way of conceptualizing multiple spatiotemporal dimensions in the physical sciences.
