    What is space?
    This question is accompanied by the question, What is space-time, considered independently and cojointly.
    This question may seem trivial (a self-answering question of the obvious), perhaps it is, but it's more complex, I think, than it may be firstly considered.

    It is - we now know - directly related to the question, 'What is time?'.

    If this turns out to be an unexpectedly productive post, please thank the inspiration of Chamilton 333 and a 15 year old fellow named Sergey500, of Hypography.

    The poll is, I think, related to questions - and answers - inspired by you.
    The question of space and time seems to accompany your issues about the Big Bang - variations on the theme.

    One variation finds the big bang like a heartbeat that bangs, projects ominidirectionally, comes back together via impelling forces across space from all exploded fragments, congeals again, goes off again, etceteras, ad infinitum. It's called 'the pulsating - big bang - universe.'

    Yes. I think that you've introduced some very wide spectrum consortiums here. I suppose it remains to be seen whether the interested forumites agree with that or not.

    I can provide 2 very abstract definitions for you:

    1. Space is the locust of all possible events that occur at any givin time.

    2. Space is the 1, 2, and 3 components of spacetime. (Time is the 0 component.)

    Vroomfondel:
    Interesting abstraction. There may be more to that, Sir. Still thinking.
