If we say for argument that two objects are in contact withstanding physical properties of atoms that prohibit actual contact at that level of observation.
From classical observation of the world if one of the objects has a force exerted upon it in an opposing direction to that of its contact with the other object.
Just exactly how much time has to occur for them to become separate or to put it another way just what degree of spacial measurement affords there separation.
Without counter arguing any measure of time or measurement, if you grasp the point I'm trying to propose.
Just what scale of measure returns itself an appropriate quantity in this scenario or is it a question of the logic and definition of the language I am using to give a picture of the scenario?
