Here's a nice academic lecture at University of Waterloo Institute for Complexity and Innovation (WICI) by Matto Mildenburger, PhD Candidate at the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, Yale University.
Exploring the Possibility Space of Ideological Change from Waterloo Institute for Complexit on Vimeo.
His use of the term "possibility space" is similar to my view, meaning a space of possible states of a system along with dimensions or topological relations that give shape to the space. At 27:04 he discusses the nature of dimensions and their validity in studying the space of ideologies. At 1:02:19 he answers a question about process of change in ideologies and how change is interpreted spatially.
