Yes, I think of it as blind time. That is, the dynamical system can do
anything it wants and I won't see it. This is particularly messy in
digital systems where antialiasing filters are impossible (systems where
the sensor is inherenty sampled as in disk drive head positioning
servos). I have seen this so bad that it required mechanical redesign.
