A post says

Of course, there are millions of exceptions to what I've just said sometimes we do not use an article with a noun that’s a whole other lesson hold the time warp for your brain, we're going to stick to these ones. When to use A AN and THE before a noun in a proper English sentence

I understand "time warp" means

an imaginary distortion of space in relation to time whereby people or objects of one period can be moved to another.

Since, hold often means "hold on", "wait for a short time"

I guess "hold the time warp" means pause that imaginary distortion for a while. Is my understanding right?

Even if my understanding about "hold the time warp" is right, I don't understand the whole piece "old the time warp for your brain", could someone please give a hint? Thanks in advance.

The sentence you've given doesn't really make sense.

Your understanding is somehow correct.

To me, it means 'keep the question about exceptions in your mind and we're going to focus on these ones (hold it for a later time -- we will explain it later)'.

Furthermore, it's poorly punctuated. The 3-4 sentences are written as if they were 1 sentence.
