We have been discussing different aspects of space in class recently, ranging from the structure of State Hall, how it has different colors in every floor, and how every floor has different study space, and also how every class is somewhat different. We also went over the difference of life in cities or urban areas to the suburbs. OK lets take a minute and find out the literal definition of space. What is space? The word “space,” has many different meanings. There is no one specific definition for space, it is used somewhat differently in different fields of study.
In philosophy: Space has a range of definitions, one view of space is that it is part of the fundamental structure of the universe, a set of dimensions in which objects are separated and located, have size and shape, and through which they can move. A contrasting view is that space is part of a fundamental abstract mathematical conceptual framework (together with time and number) within which we compare and quantify the distance between objects, their sizes, their shapes, and their speeds. In this view space does not refer to any kind of entity that is a “container” that objects “move through.”..
In mathematics; space is a set, with some particular properties and usually some additional structure, such as the operations of addition or multiplication, for instance. It is not a formally defined concept as such, but a generic name for a number of similar concepts, most of which generalize some abstract properties of the physical concept of space.
In physics: space is one of the few fundamental quantities in physics, meaning that it cannot be defined via other quantities because there is nothing more fundamental known at present. Thus, similar to the definition of other dundamental quantities (like time and mass), space is defined via measurement.
In Astronomy, space refers collectively to the relatively empty parts of the universe. Any area outside the atmosphere of any celestial body can be considered ‘space’. Although space is certainly spacious, it is not always empty, but can be filled with matter.
In geography: Geographical space is called land, and has a relation to ownership (in which space is seen as property).
In Psychology: The way in which space is perceived is an area which psychologists first began to study in the middle of the 19th century, and it is now thought by those concerned with such studies to be a distinct branch within psychology.
Anyways, as you can see the word space is a broad word. Furthermoe everyone’s space is different. Everyone has a comfort space or a comfort zone, where you sit or do something. Sometimes I like to be around friends and sometimes I jus want my personal time, so you can have your own space to do things you like and that interest you. Personally I like my space when I talk to my gurl, wife, over the phone because that’s the only way we communicate right now because I am here in the
US and she is back in
Yemen. So yeah at times I would be talking to her and lookin at her picture at the same time. But yeah you can get the idea everyone’s space and comfort zone for doing anything is different from person to person.
