What is a hole? This seemingly simple question leads immediately to the following problem: can we ontologically define what a hole is, given its enormous degree of dependence on the matter in which it takes shape? Could they be entities deprived of material constitution that, however, cannot exist independently of a material support? Could they be objects that need other objects in orderto exist? What are their consequences with regard to matter and the production of objects? What are their intrinsic qualities? Is a hole a physical manifestation of absence? With regard to matter, is it host or guest? Does its status as an opening imply a possibility for meeting between the surface and the interior of things? How can those holes that are not on the surface be found? Are they always visible to human beings? Could holes signify a paradigm shift with respect to our considerations about matter as something solid and compact? Could it be that matter needs them to exist as much as holes need matter?
