Before making generalizations about what space is
Mine is a "generalization" that has been repeated here many times in answer to questions. Space is nothing, has no effect on anything, and being nothing is not affected by anything, is basically the message. As one example, when talking about expansion, the oft repeated clarification is that expansion does not produce more space but more distance between objects, because space (being nothing) cannot be created.
