If movement exist along with the priority and posteriority which relate thereto, why will we not have time without number?
The posteriority of these as we have them need not be too much dwelt upon.
Von Buch first announced, in 1813, the discovery of its posteriority in date to limestones containing orthocerata and trilobites.
How could she contain priority, posteriority, or more or less duration of time?
More even than number, extension (which is continuous quantity), shows the characteristics of compositeness, and of posteriority.
On the other hand, anteriority and posteriority exist in dimension as well as in numbers.
Before priority and posteriority, time, which did not yet exist, brooded within existence itself.
late 14c., "state of being behind," from Old French posteriorite (Modern French postériorité), from Medieval Latin posterioritatem (nominative posterioritas), from Latin posterior "later" (see posterior (adj.)).
