*Project: A Course on Hubbard’s Factors*

*FACTOR # **5. Thus
there is space created, for the definition of space is: viewpoint of dimension.
And the purpose of a dimension point is space and a point of view.*

Space is the extent of something. Overall space is the extent of the universal matrix, or the universe. Each dimension point has a space it occupies as being large or small.

Similarly, time is the duration of something. Overall time is the duration of the universe. Each dimension point has the time it occupies as being lasting or fleeting.

The universe occupies infinite space and it is everlasting, but the individual dimension points may vary in the space they occupy and the duration they have. Space and time then combine to form all other thousands of characteristics of the dimension points.

*REVISED FACTOR # 5: Space defines the varying extent of dimension points. Time defines their varying duration. Thus comes about the overview of the characteristics of dimension points as space and time.*

## FINAL COMMENTS

*Hubbard implies that space is the perspective that one takes to view what is there. In reality, both space and time provide the overview of all the characteristics of what is there.*
