Time-binding, in this article, however, concerns the development and evolution of retensive (past) and protensive
(future) extensions of the human brain.
It can be said, then, that the spatio-temporality of the oneiric umwelt has a totalising and protensive
quality; the horizons of here and elsewhere, inside and outside the worldbody, (6) past and future are indefinite and may be pre-cognized, relative to the ceaseless flow of existence which underpins all modes of consciousness.
Using their extensive knowledge and expertise in the science and technology of food production, the Food Chain CIC has worked with the Food Processing Faraday (FPF) and Newcastle-based company, Protensive, to investigate applications of 'spinning disc' technology, originally developed for the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
Spinning disc reactor (SDR) technology, which was invented in the 1970s by Protensive co-founder and former ICI engineer Colin Ramshaw, works by passing liquids across the surface of metal discs which can be set to spin, heat and cool at optimum speeds.
Newcastle-based company Protensive, pioneers of spinning disc reactor technology in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries has worked jointly with The Food Chain Centre of Industrial Collaboration, based at Leeds University's Procter Department of Food Science, on the scheme.

Protensive, which develops technology to provide chemical processes with the right environment to flourish, is creating the hi-tech jobs at its sites at Wilton, on Teesside, and at the Centre for Life, Newcastle.
Mike Jones, Protensive chief executive, said: "The grant makes a significant difference to the momentum of our company.
Current "incubator" companies include Aeirtec, which does contract research for the pharmaceutical industry, and chemical engineering technology firm Protensive
