time storage devices
I thought I'd keep the theme of time travel running a little longer this week.
The picture supporting this is of one of a number of time storage devices (TSD) that I have identified. Some of them are quite small, like this window opener and others can be absolutely huge, even larger than London.
I'll start with the small one and how it works.
It looks like an ordinary window opener, doesn't it?
The thing is, it doesn't open the window. That's how it stores time.
I wanted to use it today and discovered that the only way was to find a screwdriver, remove the catch and then re-adjust the setting. It required a special fitting. The fitting required a special drill. The drill wasn't charged and so had to be plugged into the mains for a while.
I think it took me about an hour to open the window.
See where I'm going?
The window catch had stored an hour of my time and was patiently waiting for me to release it.
I guess a medium sized burst mode TSD is Waterloo train station. It works on a slightly different principle, because it can operate on many people at once, unlike my single person window catch.
And then there's a very large scale continuous TSD like the M25 motorway around London, which runs by the ongoing scooping up of thousands of people and a subsequent slow release of their time.
So I've discovered that TSDs can operate in one direction, but now I need to find some that work the other way around.
