Alright,
Let us consider dimensions.
Because any dimension can be represented as a dimension in math let's set up a function and see how many dimensions it has.
Now, lets say I shot a ball verticaly upwards at 10m/s on the earth.
Because we are so close to the earth, we can use g=9.8m/s^2. we will also assume there is no wind resistance.
Now, If I wanted to see how it's height (one spatial dimension) looked with respect to time (the time dimension) I could use the formula
h=0.5(9.8m/s^2)t^2+(10m/s)t
h and t are the change in height and the change in time respectivly, we will thus make our origin the time and height of launch.
What I have now is a 2 dimensional function showing the change in one spatial dimension with respect to time. I could exstend this to a 4-D graph no problem(except I couldnt visualize it) by saying X and Y movement is constant, and is 0 with respect to the origin, however we will keep it 2D for simplification, no need in wasting the last visualizable dimension we have and then another if the only data will be 0 on them
Now I say, using only those two dimension, without your fifth(third in this case), I can determin anything about my object. What have you to say?
Now is there another dimension in there apart from the spatial or time as you state? I have a 2D graph which can easily be extended to 3D to encompass your proposed dimension. Tell me, how does it fit in, why would I need to add a dimension to explain that which already appears explained by the mere two I have? If possible could you make a 3D graph incorporating this new dimension (I realise if it is only a theory this might unfeasable for you for some time untill it is developped more soundly, but it would help.)
Hopefully this will get some preogress on the topic

EDIT: to adress some posts.
Change happens WITH time as change happens with the other three dimensions
Here in lies the problem: time
is change. Time itself does not change, If I had the ability to, from the outside, peer inside thisuniverse at any point and assuming i could gather information without disturbing the system
at all then if i looked atthe same time twice, I would see the exact same thing both times. For instance if I have y=f(x) I can say that y is changing with respect to x, but I wouldnt say that x is changing at all.
