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)
