as written, 1 is one-dimensional.There are ways to generate multi-dimensional versions of 1, but the number 1 is one-dimensional.

"Dimension" has a very specific meaning in mathematics.Perhaps one could say figuratively that 1 is multidimensional because there are multiple "types" of 1. But it would be a mistake to treat this as mathematically valid.1 is one-dimensional because it is a single number.(0, 1) is a two-dimensional representation of 1; as are (1, 0), (1/, 1/), and any pair of numbers generated by (cos(θ), sin(θ)) for a given θ...Two-dimensional representations of 1, can also come in the form of complex numbers (like 1 + 0i) or two dimensional matrices/vectors (like [0 1])...

1 is one-dimensional because it is a single number.

any pair of numbers generated by (cos(θ), sin(θ)) for a given θ...

And thinking about Jeff's matrices

What is number 1 equal to?

1 (one; /ˈwʌn/ or UK /ˈwɒn/, also called unit, unity, and (multiplicative) identity), is a number, a numeral, and the name of the glyph representing that number. It represents a single entity, the unit of counting or measurement. For example, a line segment of unit length is a line segment of length 1.

Quote from: TheboxWhat is number 1 equal to?I've got to say that this question really wasn't necessary. The answer is obvious as I'm sure you know. You could have simply looked it up in Wikipedia. I can't post links yet so you'll have to find it yourself. Simple Google it.

I am looking for an invariant agreement of 1, a constant that any observer anywhere in the universe could agree on.

By comparing a group of numbers, several fundamental constants have been measured in distant parts of the universe.Perhaps the invariant you are looking for is the use of 1 in counting discrete objects? Two people in different frames of reference can agree that there is 1 star, 2 stars or 3 stars in a particular stellar system.
