All abstractions contain space. I can not imagine a unicorn without my neurons firing. The length of the neurons firing is the length of the abstraction of a unicorn
Suppose you are right about abstraction not having space. If and when a number is used to represent a thing...then the number must represent the totality of the thing in question...which includes space.
Lastly...you can not represent any kind of abstraction...number or otherwise without makeing use of space...go ahead try....
