A non-closed subspace of a topological space is singularly defective, particularly if the topology determines geometric structure. We therefore present completeness as a property of universal closure, confining our attention to metric spaces. We shall see that extraordinarily powerful theorems are available in a metric space which contains every possible boundary point in every possible metric superspace.
