[catalogued under 27. Natural Reality / C. Space / 3. Points in Space]

Full Idea

One theory is that space is made up of dimensionless points, but physical processes cannot take place in regions of less than a certain size.

Gist of Idea

Maybe space has points, but processes always need regions with a size

A Reaction
