This lecture is taken from the author's book, Absolute Space, Absolute Time, & Absolute Motion. Common sense teaches that space is different from the objects within it. This is also the conclusion of sustained reason. The key to understanding space is its smallest division, the infinitesimal. The opposing thesis, namely that space is infinitely divisible can be refuted. By understanding the nature of the spacial infinitesimal, we can answer such questions as: What is the nature of an irrational number? Under what conditions is division by zero valid? Is space curved?
