Replace the entire text of rule 407 with the following -0- delimited text:

```
A Space is a part of the game state in which it is possible to move in multiple directions. In general, a player's position in each direction is called a Component.
```
```
The only Space which currently exists is the Grid, where the X and Y values are the two Components.
```
```
Each Space has a Metric which specifies how Distance is measured there. The Grid uses the Cartesian Metric.
```
The three possible Metrics are:
```
* The chessboard metric, in which the Distance between two objects is the maximum of the differences of each Component. * The Manhattan metric, in which the Distance between two objects is the sum of (the differences of each Component). * The Cartesian metric (also called the Euclidean metric) in which the Distance between two objects is the square root of (the sum of (the squares of (the differences of each Component))).
