"It is like a sea. I often think of it as a space." (Rosmarie Waldrop)
"The lack of unity in the sea! Totality is here; but unity is missing." (Weininger)
Yes. Interesting. That may capture my puzzlement at Waldrop's remark. A space seems to me to lack the totality of a sea. A don't think of something that is "like a sea" as a space. The human soul, for example. It is like an ocean, of course. But I don't often think of it as a space.Indeed, Weininger's remark may correct Waldrop's on both counts: a space has unity (it is a unit of here, if you will, or there), but totality is missing.
An ocean vs. a bucket.
