Time and Thidell, a relative thing

The theory of relativity overturned the concept of motion from Newton's day, by positing that all motion is relative. Time was no longer uniform and absolute. Physics could no longer be understood as space by itself, and time by itself. Instead, an added dimension had to be taken into account with curved spacetime. Time now depended on velocity, and contraction became a fundamental consequence at appropriate speeds.
In the field of physics, relativity catalyzed and added an essential depth of knowledge to the science of elementary particles and their fundamental interactions, along with ushering in the nuclear age.

This clock was made for Anders by a friend, rubber watch hands makes the time stand still, until the gravity takes over and speed up the time period to flash, and that is how Thidell actually handling time....
