    But the vacuum does have physical parameters. A region of vacuum can still be curved. There’s various permeabilities, like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacuum_permeability

    It has a size ("extend" if you will). I’d call taking up space a quite physical property.
    But let’s say I grant you all of that: you’ve now pushed space to the abstract realm. That’s fine with me (it’s just one way of looking at things), but not with river:

    Sure...?

    I would hardly call it ME pushing space into the abstract
    I'm more using abstracts from the book by Patrice F. Dassonville which I mentioned Huey Dewey and Louie and myself struggle with

    Space is abstract. It is not made of anything. It has no substance.
