Ontology & the Concept of Space

Can one thing be in two places at the same time?

Can one thing be in two places at the same time?
I take the zen (ontological) approach & say that such a concept violates the concept of space being merely a context to observe objects as separate & distinct for analysis & that as a something that exists it is less  solid than a thought xor imagination.  Time is similar in that it is a separation mechanism (context) for events (stuff happening).

The idea that something can be in two places at once can mean that one’s tools are faulty; probably because one is trying to measure something too small or one’s  slits are not close enough .  Otherwise, perhaps one’s sense of reality is flawed.  The ideas about atoms & tiny particles which one imagines are behind phenomena & effects which one can actually witness can be spun in many different stories. Such may include the idea that some thing can be in two different places at the same time – but such a thought violates the concept of space. Of course one can combine such concepts into space-time which someone invented so as to write yet even even more interesting stories.

BTW time & space are relative: the king’s foot & the movement of the planets are but a couple of examples.  The so-called speed of light might be a part of an infinite harmonic which shows up in the interpretation of the some experiments viz. look in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed_of_light  null
