The boundary of the sensible present thus occurs as a relative or intermediate horizon, the meaning of which depends on whether we approach the horizon from within or from without.
Summarizing: the domain of "live experience" of temporal duration is a relatively narrow region, extending from the intermediate horizon of the sensible present (2-3 s) to the ultimate outer horizon, the horizon of actual reproducibility ([approximately equal to] [10.
As demonstrated above, durations immediately accessible to perceptual experience are delimited by the absolute inner and outer horizons; the phenomenon of sensible present imposes another, intermediate horizon, thus narrowing limit the region of actually perceivable durations (Figure 4).
We would rather say that the minimum extension of the sensible present corresponds to a punctus proximus, defining an intermediate horizon within which a definite temporal order blurs and melts.
Total debt per capita with this new issue is low at about $200 and is expected to remain low over the intermediate horizon.
The company holds favorable positions in key markets such as Japan and Europe that, although in the early stages of disintermediation, hold significant promise over the intermediate horizon.
They also find that this variable is a better forecaster of future returns at short and intermediate horizons than is the dividend yield, the earnings yield, the dividend payout ratio, and several other popular forecasting variables.
Recent studies have explored the ability of spreads between long and short yields to forecast subsequent movements in interest rates, and have found that spreads do forecast interest rate movements over short horizons up to about three months, and over long horizons beyond about two years, but do not forecast interest rate movements at intermediate horizons.
