P53 only describes a larger space (area in the cosmical space) within 
which the thing was found at some time of its history.
The "place a thing occupies" would be where its parts extend to. This 
would imply, that this "place" is fixed, either
because the thing doesn't move, or because the place is defined to be 
"located on or within" the object.
Then a question is, if a box occupies also its interior, or a wine glass 
its content, or a cave its walls or also its interior...

This notion could answer the fundamental question if something is in or 
out of another thing, but also adjacency.
