    Ne and Si are two sides of the same coin.

    I see N as "pattern-forming". When Jung said - where something is going or where it has come from - I interpret as the completion of any pattern. It might be in time, to the past or to the future. But it might also be in space. So Ne or Ni tend always to "zoom out" and try to form higher-level conceptual patterns, whereas Se or Si tend to "zoom in" and try to find more detail.

    For instance, either Ne or Ni would say there is a fire truck behind the house, and the fire was caused somehow, and it is part of a bigger trend in the area - all are completion of patterns. But Si or Se would look at the house, the fire, the stuff, and perhaps want to know about a fire truck by going to look.

    N also sees and extrapolates patterns in conceptual N-space*, eg. colours, shapes, sound pitches, stories. That is - when you say it is purely time-based, I think you may be misinterpreting Jung.

    [*N-space - I just made this up.]
