math on widths doesn't add up

Sure. I do it all the time and everybody knows how 1D I am.

Some random thoughts:

A Turing machine might be considered 1D. It can draw x,y. 

This past month, I was working in very high dimensions. I was not able to visualize that very well and used dimension reduction techniques such as PCA, UMAP and t-SNE to help. I would guess the 1D being might have to do something similar for "visualization". Maybe.

Lewis and Clark went on a path or route, 1D, and took measurements that allowed them to create a 2D map. That is, the space of the 1D path was assumed to bend in a 2D space.

The floor of my lab looks 2D to me, but I have latitude and longitude marked for the center. That labelling assumes a curving into 3D.
