“But to the end of time certain places of the world remain defined for him as the place where those sensations were; and his only possible answer to the question where anything is will be to say ‘there,’ and to name some sensation or other like those first ones, which shall identify the spot. Space means but the aggregate of all our possible sensations.”

—William James
