    Default Capitalize or not?

    In this sentence:

    We canít own Time, we can only borrow Space.

    Should Time and Space be capitalized like this?
    Should this be two sentences

    It depends on the context. If this extract is taken from the poetry they should be capitalized

    It's for an artist statement, so there is room for it to be in the form of prose, but is laying down a basic artistic intent. here's more.

    We canít own Time, we can only borrow Space. Experience alone is ours, all we can share. So we document. Start with curiosity. What is beneath, an ethereal channel, or an ephemeral abyss? Invent a process.

    Hi, jgiannasio,
    (what a difficult nick to spell )
    IMHO here they are capitalized to emphasize their philosophical grandeur, things unearthly and perennial.
    Regards

    Thanks Humble.
    Yes, the philosophical grandeur is the emphasis, to express a Heroic intent in a complacent world, to invoke desire.
