What is Space?

We are trained to think of space as distance, what if it is just a blank page.

It's a medium. Probably seems like water does to us to anyone on the outside looking in

Last year or year before, was an article about empty space having odd electrical properties. The farther into a supposedly empty region certain signals were propagated, the higher the resistance. Almost like a lattice. I think this was an area away from stars and dust clouds, so of course the writers were surprised at how 'solid' space seems when left to its own organizational bent, absent gravity etc.
Brotherhood falls asunder at the touch of fire!
He finds his fellow guilty of a skin
Not coloured like his own, and having power
To enforce the wrong, for such a worthy cause
Dooms and devotes him as his lawful prey.

"Nothing" is a really weird concept.

Especially in light of the fact that the law of entropy seems to me to say the universe is gonna fill any void.

Don't they say "nature abhors a vacuum"?
