An (s, t)-spread in a finite vector space V = V (n, q) is a collection F of t-dimensional subspaces of V with the property that every s-dimensional subspace of V is contained in exactly one member of F. It is remarkable that no (s, t)-spreads has been found yet, except in the case s = 1. In this note, the concept a-point to a (2,3)-spread F in V = V(7, 2) is introduced. A classical result of Thomas, applied to the vector space V, states that all points of V cannot be alpha-points to a given (2, 3)-spread.F. in V. In this note, we strengthened this result by proving that every 6-dimensional subspace of V must contain at least one point that is not an a-point to a given (2, 3)-spread of V.
