|Space, philosophy: various discussions deal, among others, with the question whether the space is absolute or whether empty space is possible. In different sciences, multi-dimensional spaces with certain properties are used to better calculate like Hilbert spaces in the theory of relativity or multidimensional spaces in mathematical nodal theory. No ontological assumptions are made. See also substantivalism, relativism, movement, absoluteness, compactness, conceptual space, dimensions, logical space, four-dimensionalism._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Lawrence Lessig on Space - Dictionary of Arguments
Space/Word Wide Web/Internet/Cyberspace/Lessig: Cyberspace has changed partly because people have changed an partly because the capabilities provided by the space have changed. (…) Spaces have values. (See Steven Jonson, Interface Culture: How New Technology Transforms the Way We Create and Communicate (San Francisco: Harper, 1997).
Lessig:Spaces manifest these values through the practices or lives that they enable or disable. (…) Choices mean that differently constituted spaces enable and disable differently.
