    Space is the term used to describe what is contained within the three major dimensions in our reality. Though there is thought to be up to 11 dimensions, only 4 are detectable by our senses: height, width, depth, and time in a forward motion. It is basically any area that can contain matter recognizable by our senses. The diffference between space and nothing, is that nothing, in its truest sense, cannot be detected by the human brain, since even terming it "nothing" quantifies it. Space is thought to be made up of both matter, and anti- or dark matter. It exists because those four dimensions mentioned earlier maintain and overly majoritive ratio over the other 7 dimensions.
