Can you observe space? You can conclude that there is space, but it cannot be observed.
I observe space all round me, because it is an object of awareness.

Time is different. Time is conceptual and the experience of it is relative to the one experiencing it.
But that experience is also an object of awareness.
If it were observable it would be impermanent and self-empty
awareness is observable.
I am aware that I am aware.
awareness, and the objects of awareness (e.g., space)
are, generally speaking, the only two things that can be said to
absolutely occur.The fact of awareness cannot be denied
and any object of awareness, because it arises as
an object of awareness
can be said to occur (whether it has any substance to it or not),
because it arises as an object of awareness.
The fact of awareness cannot be denied
because any denial of it would require awareness of that denial.
