"nothing disappears completely, however; nor can what subsists be defined solely in terms of traces, memories or relics... in space, what came earlier continues to underpin what follows"
"absolute space is located nowhere. it has no place because it embodies all places, and has a strictly symbolic existence. this is what makes it similar to the fictitious/real space of language, and that of mental space, magically [imaginarily] cut off from the spatial realm, where the consiousness of the 'subject' - or 'self-consciousness' - takes form." henri lefebrve, the production of space, 1991
