What we cannot do with the three spatial relations is order individuals and properties uniquely, for the choice oforigin and orientation for a spatial framework is arbitrary. It is perhaps MATTER AND METHOD worth noticing that though the single temporal relation gives a unique ordering of events (relativity has nothing to do with order), there is no unique temporal metric, for any set of event pairs can be chosen as the fundamental or standard regularity and hence as the basis for a time metric.
