gzb's spacetime postpositions form a 3-D matrix: The core postpositions are {o} "to, toward, until", {i} "at, in, during", and {ř} "from, out of, since". Prefixes mark direction or orientation and suffixes mark proximity. However, over time I've complexified the system a bit further so it's not a neat 3-D grid. -- Jim Henry
