Indeed a couple of such point fragments have been found in Level 119, and others have been found in chronometrically even more recent Magdalenian levels -probably either found on the surface or dug up during hearth construction-.
Away" from all matter and abstract dynamical physical laws, the Universe can thus be identified as a singular surjective-reflexive mirror of "superluminosity" upon which Reality "acts" trans-reflectively through Noesis and Differentia (especially the qualified infinitesimals), hence the sobriquet "Mirror-Universe" (which is particularly meaningful here, and may or may not be related to the use of the phrase in the description of an exciting geometric structure of the physical Universe as revealed in [8] and based on a chronometrically invariant monad formalism of General Relativity as outlined in [4, 9, 11]).
Responses could be measured by fMRI and PET scans, as well as chronometrically in terms of some performance demand, and the design could be systematically varied to probe tolerances and thresholds for image-schematic clash or, what seems more likely from the foregoing analyses, functional constraints that might give substance to the concept "unimaginable.
Not eager to cede his Babylonian sovereign for Giuseppe Verdi's, Flavy closed discussion of the matter by declaring that he did not care whether it was five chronometrically precise seconds or not.
The mean reproduced durations, r, plotted as a function of the stimulus duration, s, show typically (a) under-production with respect to the chronometrically correct response, r = s, and (b) a non-linear course with a negative curvature, indicating progressive shortening of the response with respect to the stimulus s (Figure 3; Wackermann, Spati, & Ehm, 2005).
All of these units except for the Ediacaran are defined chronometrically.
