The Telltale Origin of Time and Space

Recognition of non-biological pattern and symmetry is the basis of our notions of time and space, and this recognition is not biologically natural. Its first appearance on this planet occurred mere centuries ago, and there is no indication 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, we would need to look more carefully at the cognition and behaviors of those children we have ironically labeled as disordered.
