Before proceeding, please read and agree with the following:

Upon entering this space, the user agrees to become a time-telling voice, and to be transformed into a signal, to travel from your device and its location to a small, rented partition of a computer in a server farm located at 33.448456 North, 111.983832 West.

The user agrees to be transformed into light, to travel at the speed of it, through subterranean and subaquatic fiber optic cables. You will embark on a journey across jurisdictions, traveling on privately owned routes, being disintegrated and reintegrated at any Internet Exchange Point, on a voyage with a beginning but no end.

The user agrees to cruise oceans and continents in the space of a few seconds, carrying their local time message. In accordance, the user agrees to the following: to refuse their association with solar time and to align with Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) standards; to recognize Greenwich meridian as the center of the world, as the 0 hour; and to follow all the adjacent standards agreed at the 1884 International Meridian Conference.

In the process of being translated into a signal, the user agrees to follow the Network Time Protocol (NTP). Correspondingly, the user agrees to accept as truthful, the average calculations of the 420 atomic clocks distributed worldwide by the French based International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM), in cooperation with the Geneva based International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

In this agreement, the user recognizes atomic time as the time, and the second, or 1/86400 of the length of the Earth’s rotation on its axis; as 9192631770 vibrations of the sky blue caesium atom. Respectively, the user agrees to be dependent on the rare element, mined in 85% of its capacity in the Tanco mine in Canada, and controlled in 100% of its production by Chinese corporations. Subsequently, as each terrestrial day is longer than the last, while the caesium atom is one of the most stable elements, the user agrees to the addition of leap seconds in order to match the difference.

By accepting this agreement, the user acknowledges to dismiss a perceptual reckoning of time or any other cultural or historical form of time measurement, and to adopt a mathematical, subjective standardization - a global, controlled, and unified calculation of the planet Earth’s position in relation to its Sun, determined by invisible radioactive events.

By clicking “agree” the user concedes to breathe in the rhythm of a second, to become a ticking data point, a soundly voice in a silent choir. With this, the user agrees to announce their singular local time in a shared tone, for the duration of this space, to all users.
