If Our Space Were "imbedded" Inverse Square Would Fail.

And it would depend then on the dimensionality of... well, of what? of "outer space"? is this "outer space" different from our "inner space"? Obviousely, it HAS to be different - othervise gravitons and photons would propagate in it exactly the same way they propagate in "inner" 3-D space, thus making gravity and electric field weakier in our "inner space". So, instead of inverse square fields would drop faster with the distance - depending on the total dimensionality of both "spaces".

So, we have no space similar to "inner space" beyond it.

And if the "outer space" is DIFFERENT than "inner space", well - can we call it space then? And if NOTHING we know can propagate in it (nor gravity, nor photons nor matter) - what evedence do we have then that there is ANYTHING "space-like" out there, beyond of our 3-D space at all?
