5 Space and Time

Beginning with space and time, this section opens a discussion of GFO categories that extends over several sections.


There are several basic ontologies concerning space and time. In the top-level ontology of GFO presented herein, chronoids and topoids are individuals. Chronoids can be understood as temporal intervals with boundaries, and topoids as connected spatial regions having boundaries as well as a certain mereotopological structure.
