The Telltale Origin of Time and Space

Recognition of non-biological symmetry, structure and pattern is the basis of the notions of time and space, and this recognition has not come easily, it is not natural to a species. Its first appearance on this planet occurred only a handful of millennia ago, and there are no indications of such recognition in the cognition and behaviors of the other animal species, or in the cognition and behaviors of early humans.

Thus the word normalcy does not attach to temporal and spatial recognition. To witness a spontaneous, biological occurrence of such recognition, one would need to look more carefully at the cognition and behaviors of those children we have ironically labeled as disordered.
