Class: span:TemporalRegion

Definition: An occurrent that is part of time.
Examples: the time it takes to run a marathon, the duration of a surgical procedure, the moment of death
Comment: This is the time that is common to both SNAP and SPAN entities. The time of temporal region and its sub-classes will normally be the time that should be referred to when sub-classing universals having to do with time in an ontology.
