Single Idea 10683

[catalogued under 27. Natural Reality / C. Space / 2. Space]

Full Idea

We might dispense with substantival space, and say that if the distribution of matter in space could have been different, that just means the matter of the Universe could have been shaped differently (with geometry as the science of shapes).

Gist of Idea

We could ignore space, and just talk of the shape of matter
