The all comprising infinite space becomes finite if observed from outside, so to speak. Hence it solidifies into a thing with cognizable properties distinguishing it from other things. With these it shares the common all-embracing unique space.

Since this process repeats again and again, the idea of nested spaces may arise, each one bigger than its predecessor. So that a successive, though probably never perfect, approximation to the one and only true space might take place. The conception of a hierarchy of spaces (or things), which is widely used, in one way or another, may be due to this.

However, this idea tacitly implies the existence of an order relation applying to all possible spaces — here denoted by “bigger than its predecessor”. But in being recognized, which means, as said above, observed from the “outside”, such a relation looses its absolute questionless universality, because in that moment spaces become thinkable that do not possess this property. The spaces with such an order thus become part of a still more universal space which does not possess it in the same manner. And which therefore does not necessarily have to be called “bigger”.
