Book: The Five Principles of Middle Way Philosophy

Chapter: f. Continuity of Space

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.44177


Our sense of the continuity of space is dependent on that of time, and also interacts with conceptual models of lines in space. We can recognize the incrementality of a boundary in physical space dependent on concepts, and also of conceptual boundaries modelled on physical space. We need provisional boundaries in practice, but these can be optimized by contextualizing our spatial assumptions. The Middle Way itself is also modelled in spatial terms, but has no absolute defined boundaries.
