    Space is room so that physical things can manifest and therefore exist .

    From the thread in Astronomy , Exobiology and Cosmology

    The dimensions of height, depth, and width within which all things exist and move.

    I'm almost going to agree with that. Space is the fabric which wrinkles to make physical things.

    Well.... photons - energy - compacts to make physical things.

    The idea of space being a fabric has long been discouraged as a helpful analogy, beyond the basic level.

    I make no pretence to go beyond the basic level.

    Space is the area in which things exist & events happen.

    Granted, but I assume the thread is hoping to.

    What would ever lead you to assume that?

    The title.

    The fact that it's asked in a forum. We might assume the poster has not found the basic answers out there to be satisfactory, so he's asking for more.

    [ EDIT ] nm. I just realized who the OP is. And the fact that no elucidating questions were asked in post #1. Thanks for drawing my attention to that.

    That's way too logic for this forum, don't you think?

    As you noticed, the originator is river, so I might have gone a bridge too far already.
