*Latham's time-base theory manifests itself as art, but it could also be constructed as meta-science. The theory is expressed in texts and by a diagram which depicts different levels of existence within the universe along a linear A-Z spectrum. The area from N to U represents human consciousness. (Chrissie Iles, The N-U Niddrie Heart, 1992)
