In principle this can be done but to what purpose? You would get a
phenomenally misleading picture, no better than projecting three
dimensional solid onto a line. There would all sorts of horrible
intersections and singularities even in a representation of a smooth
manifold. In my opinion this would be far worse than not having any
picture at all. Actually, in some situations it is helpful to represent
a number of parameters as one on a single axis, but you need a good
insight into the situation to decide when this will be useful and which
parameters should be groped together. But any such thing has to be very
much tailored to a specific problem.
