Presence and Place

Every event has both a presence and a place.  The presence is the area the event occupies.  The place is the point in which the event occurs.  Likewise, each presence has a time span of occurrence and each place has an exact time of occurrence.  So an event has four dimensions: A place, a time of place, a presence and a time span of presence.

The world an old man inhabits is never as large
as the world he hears.

I grow older in what I hear than in who I am.

The bomb explodes in one place, but the shock waves spread for miles.
