    Is this a trick question?

    I never was good at this sort of things. Here's what I think the answer is:

    ' What is between 2 ears, has no mass and occupies no space but requires intelligence? '

    The question doesn't really have mass or space if it is in cyberspace, does it? But it DOES require intelligence, which I quite obviously don't have.

    The space in my head where my brain should be. it is empty it has no mass and it REQUIRES intelligence (i even has a vacancy sign on my head for intelligence) because im sucking at my exams.

    thought, reasoning, understanding, etc... these have no mass and would be performed between 2 ears, but without the "mass" that makes them possible, they can't happen, so I don't know.

    Wouldn't that normally be between a mouth and an ear? Of course, some of us do have "conversations" going on between our ears.
