suppose you are measuring a point on in a room. it can be x from one wall, y from another, and z from the floor. but what if one were to measure an event that took place at a point in this room? to do so you must introduce t.

It's not uncommon for physicists working in statistical mechanics to use an "n-dimensional" space where n is some huge number: 3 times the number of particles involved.

And, of course, "functional analysis"- used in theory of differential equations- regularly works with infinite dimensional spaces.
