Having discussed how the execution space can be represented, we now turn to how its properties are combined with those of the procedure. We observed before that without taking the temporal dimension into account in some way, it is impossible to understand the effect of the procedure on the execution space. We will now discuss two ways of relating the properties of the procedure and those of the final configuration: execution and temporal indexation. EXECUTION AND SIMULATION Many of our subjects requested the permission to handle the sticks.

Can you explain why? (i) But, ... Simply by transitivity relations, that is, every time you make comparisons which every time let you take out the smallest. So the 2nd is longer than the 1st, you compare these two with a 3rd; the 3rd is either smaller than the 2nd, in which case he comes in front of it, and the longer is displaced to the right; and it is the other way around, if it is the longer, it stays there. Since this one (2) is itself longer than the first, it (3) is the longest of the three.

Assume further that w is longer than both x and y. Because xy, the couple is also rearranged and becomes (y,w). At this point, the three sticks are ordered thus: x y w. In summary, then, w has moved two places to the right, because it was longer than the two sticks with which it was compared. The generalization is obvious: w will continue to move to the right as long as it is not compared to a stick longer than itself.
