frame

    1.      A cross-section of a hypothetical 3-D film of all the matter in our Universe.

    Frame differs from position in that a frame may include and typically includes other objects. Position
    only includes the object under consideration. In other words, the surface of the object in a frame is
    separated from others by distance (space). Therefore, the object has location. Position is the site
    occupied or volume of space ‘displaced’ by an object: the object itself. Like location and existence, a
    frame may not include all the objects in the universe, but may refer to a subset for the purposes of
    the instant presentation.

    (Synonyms: photograph, still image, location, existence, field of view, picture, static universe, cross-
    section of time, statue, sculpture)
