No, indeed.  She showed that after seeing and responding to a question
about *space* that happens to match your native language's default
representation of time, that you can then answer questions purely about
time more quickly.  Of course, there are people with unusual worldviews
such as yourself who constitute outliers: the conclusion is statistical,
not absolute.
