Non-Metrical Geometry

What is Non-Metrical Geometry?

It is mentioned in A. N. Whitehead's "Process and Reality" (pages 490s), in discussion of infinitesimals (Weierstrass), presentational immediacy, strain locus, projection (opposite of injection, I think), God and mentality. Intuitively, it brings me back to the 470s (pages); "Its is to be remembered that two points determine a complete straight line, that three non-colinear points determine a complete plane, and that four non-coplanar points determine a complete three dimensional flat locus." ("Process and Reality", page 472)
