Comment #1: temci2 and temci3 order; also introduce temci4?
Curtis W Franks (Fri Feb 2 22:31:50 2018)

Should it be the case that temci2 and temci3 are ordered such that temci3
is after temci2 (in some frame of reference), thereby making temci1 an
ordered or directed line segment/interval? For typical purposes, this would
add some utility to the word, but there could be situations in which it
would be troublesome. (These need not even be exotic: If one does not know
the order of events A and B in time, then one's ordered application of the
selbri to them will reveal a potentially undesirable bias).

___

Regardless of the first answer, I believe that we should specify a fourth
sumti slot which indicates the geometry or frame of reference for the
interval separating the events (see "danci"). For example, some events
are simultaneous in one frame (their time interval, if inclusive on either
end, would form a singleton set) but are time-separated in another (the
interval would have positive measure). Moreover, if there were to be
additional dimensions of time, the path taken between distinct points in
time would become important.

you specify the frame with a new brivla and inside its abstraction place
specify `ka ce'u ce'u ce'u temci`


As for "interval" I think niltei which is a part of temci's def. is
just fine.
