Space (Latinspatium; Hebrewחלל chalal) is, from a spiritual-scientific point of view, a product of the highest Trinity, which itself cannot be imagined spatially. The external, geometrically descriptive Euclidean space, i.e. our usual visual space, is three-dimensional. However, mathematics is also able to precisely grasp higher-dimensional, even infinite-dimensional spaces, which elude the sensory imagination, through pure thought by defining space as an abstract set of mathematical objects with a certain mathematical structure, for example as a vector space or as a topological space or as a manifold. Rudolf Steiner himself often spoke about the spiritual significance of the fourth dimension (Lit.:GA 324a).
