In order to begin to answer the first and to investigate the nature of this "place," we need to return to that primordial, mythic sense of space that we encountered earlier as central to the notion of Presence. As we are not objects in historical time, so we are not primordially in quantitative space. The human presence spatializes a world around it in accordance with the mode of being of that presence. As is the case for primordial time, the space of this primary presence is a qualitative, discontinuous space.
