Here's what you said that I was responding to:

Negative spaces were always the the most sacred focal point in temples,shrines,ancient burial caves for prehistoric men..etc

But it seems some ancient places of reverence found a negative space focus, while others found a positive space focus.

Consider also that anthropological artifacts of highly protected interior spaces are much, much more likely to have survived than those of provisionally protected or exposed outdoor spaces.

We can learn very much from the past, but not much with certainty.
