What is the terminology of 超空間 (superspace), and what is it referring to?

I have been pondering this question for about a year now, and when looking for an answer today, I couldn't find anything. Is 超空間 referring to superspace in a mathematical sense (i.e. a space with more than four coordinates; an infinite-dimensional space), or is it referring to a higher-dimensional space?

I'd say that depends on a writer's intention. 超空間 is a special term, so feel like that we have no clear and familiar definition of it. But native Japanese speakers would usually think of the latter one, a higher-dimensional space.
