TimeStorm aims to explore the multitude of ways that time affects cognition. Accordingly, the project puts forward the notion of Entimed Cognition (enT-C) which postulates that intelligent thinking is largely determined by the temporal properties of the cognitive processes and the consideration of real world phenomena in association with the flow of time.

In other words, it is because of the entimed nature of cognition, that we are capable of considering the temporal information accompanying events and accomplishing the association of asynchronous percepts, emotions and activities.


Entimed + Embodied Cognition. The concept of entiment effectively complements the well known concept of Embodied Cognition (emB-C) that emphasizes the coupling of the mind and the body, as well as the fact that the agent is situated in a certain portion of the global environment. Complementary to the latter, enT-C argues that the mind is additionally linked to the past and the future of the world. While embodiment focuses very much on the here and now of the world, entiment additionally postulates that past experiences and future goals beyond the here and now are also very important to understand organisms and how their brains work.

Therefore, the agents and their minds are situated both in space and in time. If either the space or the time is differentiated, then the mind of the agent will be also differentiated.
