Middle English, from dep deep
- 1a (1) : a deep place in a body of water <fish living at great depths> (2) : a part that is far from the outside or surface <the depths of the woods> (3) : abyss
- b (1) : a profound or intense state (as of thought or feeling) <the depths of misery>; also : a reprehensibly low condition <hadn't realized that standards had fallen to such depths> (2) : the middle of a time (as winter) (3) : the worst part

- b : the direct linear measurement from front to back
Three-dimensional space is a geometric 3-parameters model of the physical universe (without considering time) in which we exist. These three dimensions can be labeled by a combination of three chosen from the terms length, width, height, depth, and breadth. Any three directions can be chosen, provided that they do not all lie in the same plane.
In physics and mathematics, a sequence of n numbers can be understood as a location in n-dimensional space. When n = 3, the set of all such locations is called 3-dimensional Euclidean space. It is commonly represented by the symbol . This space is only one example of a great variety of spaces in three dimensions called 3-manifolds.
Personality is bestowed by the Universal Father upon his creatures as a potentially eternal endowment. Such a divine gift is designed to function on numerous levels and in successive universe situations ranging from the lowly finite to the highest absonite, even to the borders of the absolute. Personality thus performs on three cosmic planes or in three universe phases:
- Position status. Personality functions equally efficiently in the local universe, in the superuniverse, and in the central universe.
- 2.Meaning status. Personality performs effectively on the levels of the finite, the absonite, and even as impinging upon the absolute.
- 3. Value status. Personality can be experientially realized in the progressive realms of the material, the morontial, and the spiritual.
Personality has a perfected range of cosmic dimensional performance. The dimensions of finite personality are three, and they are roughly functional as follows:
- 1. Length represents direction and nature of progression—movement through space and according to time— evolution.
- 2. Vertical depth embraces the organismal drives and attitudes, the varying levels of self-realization and the general phenomenon of reaction to environment.
- 3. Breadth embraces the domain of co-ordination, association, and selfhood organization.
