That seems like a complicated explanation but I get it now. Makes good sense too.

Exactly it has to revolve around the same root note for it to be considered a use of pitch axis.

49:16 time? Like 7 bars of 7:16? What is your tempo?!? quarter note=?

Funny timing is often easy for me but when the "funny" factor is a 16th note it gets complicated.
Some people say to think outside the box.
I say do away with it. You can always stand in its former location if you need to make use of the perspective it gave you, but will benefit from the ability to situate yourself in different loci with ease.
Destroy the box.
