A nonsequenced query is a SELECT statement that treats temporal columns of temporal tables as if they were nontemporal columns. It does not place any special semantics on temporal columns. It considers all states simultaneously.

A NONSEQUENCED VALIDTIME query can optionally include a PA. In this case, the query produces a valid-time temporal table, where the valid time of the result set rows is the PA specified in the query. If a NONSEQUENCED VALIDTIME query does not include a PA, the query produces a nontemporal table as a result set.

A NONSEQUENCED TRANSACTIONTIME query cannot include a PA, and always produces a nontemporal table as a result set.
