A backspace is a headspace that is distant from the front, or any fronts that may exist in the system, and may be tangentially connected at most. These spaces may be seen stereotypically in a given system as aloof, irrelevant, or generally just unexplored, but they don't have to be. They are defined by existing distant from the front, and generally managing their own affairs, without influencing or being influenced by the body, even if people from there may front. This term may also can indicate the concept as a whole as present in any system, and refer to ALL backspaces within a given system or networked with a given body.
