Space III 35
Empty Space / Field: would be one without space-time points: pointless! - ((s) only for Platonism?)
III 35
Space / Time / Field: quantification over sp.-time points is something other than mere quantification over space points when a space point should be something that exists in time - because that leads to the wrong question: - whether a room point is identical to the same point in time - which in turn leads to the wrong question, if there was absolute rest.
III 36
Regions / Points / Field: solution for the nominalist: individual calculus / Goodman: Regions as sums of points - then there are no empty areas! - Regions then need not be contiguous, or can be measured.
