What exactly is a frame of reality?

Is it 2d? What are some of its properities?

I'm not sure if I'm asking this question in the correct way...I'm just having trouble with the concept.

A frame of reference is a coordinate system that is static to the observer used to take measurements.

like a point? Or is it a set of points?

A more general frame in regards to physics would be an "inertial frame", which is basically a frame that isn't accelerating, but that doesn't mean it can't have some velocity relative to another frame. It is basically just a frame where F=ma makes sense. I can tell you are having trouble with the concept, because you are apparently having trouble asking the question.
