27. Natural Reality / C. Space-Time / 1. Space / b. Space
Space can't be an individual (in space), but it is present in all places [Harr/Madden]
     Full Idea: Space lacks a place, and does not qualify as an individual, since the ordinary notion of individuals relates to place not space. ...But we can think of space as present in every place through the necessary connection between space and all places.
     From: Harr,R./Madden,E.H. (Causal Powers [1975], 9.IV)
     A reaction: I'm not sure I understand it being present in every place, given that it is every place.
