In this paper, we follow the philosophy of Zubiri and Heidegger, and to some extent of Hegel and Nietzsche, and examine the conception of body on the basis of a topology that thinks from the exterior, in other words within the spatial nature of things. Here we argue that in a veracious analysis of the body the space will always unfold as the horizon where everything is secerned and identified. The body, therefore, provides the figure itself where all things become interconnected. The body, as the space, signifies the exteriority, and this allows all kinds of conjunction as well as production of bodies.
