Denounce yourself from our current time system. We have all seen how the speed of time varies. Waiting 5 minutes for the bus can take ages, while 5 minutes in the morning is just a flash. The connection between mechanical hooks and nooks spinning in a case of varying size and shape or the pulsation of a quartz thingybob and passing of time is nonexistent! What could they possibly have inc ommon?
Time is not linear. Remember that when waiting for the bus.
