The physical universe, as opposed to something abstract
, like cyberspace
(in the Gibsonesque
sense) or anything else that is purely digital. It's used pretty much exclusively (to my knowledge) in this digital/physical dichotomy
. The only difference it has from meatspace
is that our existence is a bit more dignified : instead of being mere slabs of meat
, we're chunks of flesh
Example : "You'll never see a boxed version of Debian in fleshspace"
