I have an Art Deco clock on my mantelpiece, a present from a loved one (see, someone does after all). Pic below shows numbers 11,12,1, and 5,6,7, all very close together. Then 2,3,4, and 8,9,10, much further apart. Now, Einstein has it that time elapsed reduces with velocity. In other words as you accelerate, time actually speeds up. Why, therefore, do the hands keep that same rate of travel and stick to the right time if they have further to travel? What does Euclyd have to say?
I mean, next time I poke the fire (no ribaldry please) I don't want to end up in another....plac..e.
