Can a two sided object exist in a three dimensional space?

If you think about what defines three dimensions(x, y, z) then something without two sides doesnt have a Z dimension. Therefore incompatible with 3D space.

What are your thoughts?

Depends. Do you count edges as "sides"? If not, you could have a bowl-shaped/parabolic solid. Two sides: one round, one flat.

That's the thing. Can edges be sides? Let's define a side as having dimension and an edge as not. Can something in a 3D world NOT have a dimension?

You can have fractional dimensions.

Would the potential beginning of the universe count, would we consider an increased likeliness when looking the the probabilities of the linear pattern of the formation of the dimensions.

1-2-3-4 as I would even believe 1-4-2-3 to account for the first dimension existing in time to account for expansion to -2-3

All more likely than 2 coming from 3

Does this suffice in lending worthy credence?

String theory begs to differ.
