English term or phrase: large gravity-only dimensions
We are stuck in flatland. Only gravity is free to escape and roam in the higher dimensions - what science fiction writers call hyperspace, and physicists call "the bulk".
It's an attractive idea, because the existence of *large gravity-only dimensions* would explain, why gravity appears to be so weak, many orders of magnitude feebler than electromagnetic and nuclear forces.

grosse Dimensionen mit Gravitation/grosse Nur-Gravitations-Dimensionen
Explanation:
Hard to find any references. The source below one only talks about "grosse Dimension mit Gravitation".

Hmm...maybe you're free to use your own terminology, as nobody seems to know what's really going on. While researching, I got tangled up in no less than 11 dimensions and a Zillion different theories.

Faszinierend :)
