    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Space exists, because it has to exist for you to exist in it to pose the question.

    I contend that there is no space. That every pocket of area is filled. With something. Dark matter? Maybe. All mass, all area, in the universe, is filled.


    With something.

    But has anything really traveled through space? How do you know this?

    Depends on how deep we want to dig. We could be living in a computer simulation, in which case the only thing I can know with absolute certainty is that consciousness exists.

    But setting that speculation aside, it is also possible that at scales beyond our ability to measure, there is no such thing as empty space.

    Space is only 100K (62 miles) away, straight up.

    The 'white space' you typed is just as much a thing as the letters in your paragraph, as far as the HDD hosting this website is concerned.

    Furthermore, the fabric of the universe itself is mostly vacuum energy (AKA dark energy), and thus the metaphysical concept of a void of 'nothing' is simply unscientific.
