This clock counts in "decs" (10-minute intervals) and minutes.
If we measure time differently, we may experience time
differently (see linguistic relativity).
Consider this when designing an alternate clock system:
- similarity to today's 12-hour or 24-hour clock system
(I prefer keeping more "units" of time the same)
- factors of 10 to align with the SI system
- repeated factors, like 2^k or n^k
(some may enjoy 2^k from musical socialization)
This alternate clock uses minutes; each day has 1440 = 5(2^5)(3^2) of them.
- the 24-hour clock separates numbers by 24-6-10
(the time 2117 is 21/24, 1/6, 7/10)
- the 12-hour clock uses 2-12-6-10
(the time 9:17 PM is 2/2, 9/12, 1/6, 7/10)
- this clock uses 144-10
(the time 127.7 is 127/144, 7/10)
This time system draws inspiration from
Wait But Why.
A human spends approximately 100 decs awake each day.
What do you do with the 10-minute intervals of your day?
