There is no absolute charge of matter with one fluid; no latency of a single electricity.
The poet is one who has detected this latency of power in every breast.
The repression during the period of latency is an inner obstacle of this kind—or rather one which has become inner.
I shall now give an account of my experiments in the period of latency and the summation of stimuli.
And thus it is that every Idealist, bleak and wintry as his mood may be, is conscious of the latency of spring.
They remain stored up in latency and are ready to spring into activity as soon as the depths of the mind are probed.
His illustrations show that by activity he meant essentially presence, by latency absence from the visible soma.
Argument:—The incomprehensible nature of God, expressed by indefinite predicates, and his latency in the works of creation.
The hypothesis of latency which thus meets us in limine in this inquiry will soon be found inadequate to cover the facts.
While those other mothers, by retaining such in latency, preserved them as a rich inheritance for male heirs.
latency la·ten·cy (lāt'n-sē)
The state of being latent.
In conditioning, the period of apparent inactivity between the time the stimulus is presented and the moment a response occurs.
See latency phase.
1. The time it takes for a packet to cross a network connection, from sender to receiver.
2. The period of time that a frame is held by a network device before it is forwarded.
Two of the most important parameters of a communications channel are its latency, which should be low, and its bandwidth, which should be high. Latency is particularly important for a synchronous protocol where each packet must be acknowledged before the next can be transmitted.
