This chapter contains an extended discussion of two different philosophical (as opposed to physics-based) reasons to believe in the hypothesis of hyperspace. The first examines the phenomenon of incongruent counterparts, paying special attention to the curiously neglected topic of temporally incongruent counterparts and to the popular argument from incongruent counterparts to substantivalism. The second presents a fine-tuning argument for hyperspace, both considering the case for defense of the premises and responding to a range of serious and philosophically interesting objections, which arise in the theistic and multiverse fine-tuning literature.

Keywords:   fine-tuning, hyperspace, incongruent counterparts, multiverse, substantivalism
