What is the nature of the objective space over which human beings have variously projected their illusions? It is common to assume that geometrical space is the objective reality, and that personal and cultural spaces are distortions. In fact we know only that geometrical space is cultural space, a sophisticated human construct, the adaption of which has enabled us to control nature to a degree hitherto impossible. The question of objective reality is tantalising but unanswerable, and it may be meaningless. However, we can raise the following question and expect a tentative answer: if geometrical space is a relatively late and sophisticated cultural construct, what is the nature of man’s original pact with his world, his original space? …

…. We can say little more than that original space posses structure and orientation by virtue of the presence of the human body.  This primitive relationship holds when the body is largely a system of anonymous functions, before it can serve as an instrument of conscious choice and intentions directed towards an already defined field (Mzerleau-Ponty, 1962; Ricoeur 1965). Original space is a contact with the world that precedes thinking; hence its opaqueness to analysis. *
