Loneliness of Space . . . Or Is It?

I have poked a couple of teasers at Linzi this morning about “HAL” and “Alien”.  And something just occurred to me regarding the concepts of space and presence.  i posted a comment on Twitter that one of the teaser lines for the movie “Alien” was “In space, no one can hear you scream.”  And it hit me:  Space is a void that we can occupy.  In the context of that movie line, it is true, in space no one can hear anything.  However, when space is filled with something, e.g. oxygen, the presence of a being can be detected.  Space is no longer simply occupied but is occupied with a discernible presence.  I just thought I would throw that idea into my Lifestream and let it swim around for a while.
