John Latham proposed that the universe was structured by time and event rather than space and object. He used the term ‘delta’, the Greek letter (Δ) symbolising change, as an alternative measure of value. Latham states, ‘It is convenient to describe a Delta unit as referring to a unit of attention’. For Latham, time spent engaged with a subject was a more appropriate guide to value than object or monetary value.
