All that I suggest is that string theory and especially string monads only 
really address the hard problem if they are understood as figurative 
strings rather than literal structures. The dimensions would have to be 
qualitative experiential dimensions (like emotion, meaning, etc.) rather 
than literally 'different kinds of space'. 

In my view the whole notion of space as a plenum is a non-starter. You can 
look at it that way and perhaps it will work eventually, but it is the 
loooong way around - like trying to guess what song is playing by analyzing 
a database of the expressions on the faces of people listening to that song.

I say that space is a dimensionless void between phenomena which do have 
qualities that can be expressed as partly quantifiable with dimension. We 
are in the big bang, as we always have been, only it is banging within, 
diffracting itself in many different ways, both figuratively and literally 
at the same time.
