The world inventions: The history and the case of the clock!

in OCDlast month (edited)


Time is always defined somewhere in the world. And we can go back or further in time, and we can change our history as we want it to be. Nobody can throw us into the corner of shame or stow us away. And humanity has a consequence: All people should be treated with dignity and respect.

What is really time, and where does it come from? Time is something we experience in life, when our body is getting older! And we also see this in the evolution of time in the world, especially with buildings and statues. And history is filled with coordination, integration, motivation, coaching and expulsion. You cannot define World Bank, but we can challenge all the positions there, and one Nobel prize issue is just about making choices in understanding a problem!

From earlier times, the length of the day was used as a unit for defining time. The most fundamental definition of time is the second. In science, the second is technically defined as the radiation of the atom caesium-133 in relation to zero kelvin. In everyday speech, the second is defined as 1/86 400 of a medium solar day. We find this figure in the denominator by using the math 60 x 60 x 24. This has dramatic consequences for the definiton of time everywhere in the world. And in addition, we have a known magazine called for Time. So, time is important, and the choices we are doing everywhere during the time we have in life. The specified ratio mentioned here means that the day is divided in 24 hours, and this is due to the time it takes for the earth to go around its own axis. And further, we have defined time as consisted of minutes and seconds, and there are 60 minutes in an hour and 60 seconds in a minute, and this could be defined differently. But we must choose the time, and research is always choices, choices and even more choices! But living with ordinary people, we should make ordinary and expected choices, otherwise things are strange!

People have tried to keep track of time and seasons so long as the humans have made history at earth! Time has been measured by means of water and sun to the daily exact atomic clocks. Greenwich is known for its maritime history and for giving its name to the zero meridian, which in English is called Greenwich Meridian, and accordingly all times in the world are in relation to this meridian! Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is that time zone that are used in Great Britain, Ireland and Portugal during the winter, and it is used the whole season at Iceland! Since 1884, the meridian in Greenwich is used as the zero meridian for the whole earth. Any place in any country is included in such case!

Time is an abstract term mainly used as a term for the constant movement of events from future to present to past. If time is meant as a point in reality, it is measured as years, months, weeks, hours, minutes and seconds, and humans use time as the watches and the clocks are showing! We used the abbreviations AM and PM, AM is standing for Ante Meridiem and means before dinner, and PM is standing for Post Meridiem and means after dinner. AM is from from midnight to the middle of the day, and PM is from the middle of the day to midnight.

Researchers around the world are now in doubt about the definition of time, and they want the time to be redefined! In our watches we use laser beams. They oscillate much faster than microwave radiation. This means that we can define and measure time in much shorter intervals, and this does that the measurement of time is even more exactly than the methods they have used before.

During the end of the 1200s, mechanical watches were discovered, and time has been measured in different ways before that. Henceforth, the clock became the standard for everything, to quote the French historian Jacques Le Goff. The first public watch or clock that showed the hours of the day, came in 1336 on the San Gottardo church in Milan in Italy! So, hence time should be admired and respected to Italy, also taking all this history into account!

Big Ben is the nickname of the largest of the bells at Westminster Palace in London. It is also often misused about the entire tower. The clock was started in 1858 and was completed in 1859. It is said to have been named after Benjamin Hall, who was chief commissioner of public works. Another theory is that since this building was the heaviest of its kind, it has been named after the famous professional boxer Benjamin Caunt! It was cast by Whitechapel Bell Foundry. Big Ben is located nearby the river Thames!
