Hi Frans,
Re (2), No, I did not really mean tessellations, but that is perhaps a helpful way to think. DGGS is definitely not what I meant. In the time ontology, there is the possibility of the simplest temporal ordering of events, linked to geological or archaeological layers, king lists, ice cores, with reasoning (before, after, during, overlapping, etc).t There is no concept of duration, just ordering.

I envisage that there may be a simple spatial 'ordering', but without distance. Two things maay be adjacent, or 'further away' with more intermediate adjacent things. Nodes on a network are the obvious example.

Tesellation are not quite the same as most tesselations involve a proper distance/measure to get precise shapes. They straddle both ideas. As does DGGS if (measured) location is replaced by a (counted) location of grid cell identifier.
