Night and Day
The Nobel laureates Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W. Young have provided the proof that „life on Earth is adapted to the rotation of our planet“.
Firmly attached to this fact and as we travel through the depths of the cosmic space around the Sun on our rotating planet Earth
relative to our star gives rise to our concept of time. At this very moment we are traveling around the Sun at a speed of more than 107.000 km/h while our planet Earth revolves 365 times around its axis during a single orbit of our star - known as a year.
The time elapsed for one complete revolution of the Earth around itself represents a period of brightness followed by a period of darkness - known as a day.
It clearly follows, space and time are not just relative to each other, they are intrinsically woven.
To transform the concept of time in a perceptible form, present timepieces constitutes one standard unit - such as the second - by
observing a certain number of repetitions of one or another standard cyclical event inside their clockworks. Which means, one complete
revolution of the Earth around itself - the day length of approximately 24 hours - is artificially simulated by
repetitive cyclical events. Therefore chronometers as we know in this day completing the same number of constant oscillations in each second, in
each hour, in each day - the clock is running at a constant rate. Due to this, the clock cannot follow the actual Sun.
Instead chronometers as we know in this day are following an imaginary “mean Sun” and this “mean solar time” is determined artificially and
displayed by present timepieces.
Due to the physical mechanism of the clockwork in chronometers as we know in this day, time is measured and displayed in 2-dimensions - therefore space and time are separated in present chronometers.
A new Era in high-end Chronometry. ITEM
The ITEM is an unprecedented and unique high technology object for the determination of time.
The ITEM was invented and developed by Joachim Kubaink to determine time for the first time in a 3-dimensional space.
The ITEM determine and display time where time originates.
In contrast to chronometers as we know in this day, where time is determined and displayed in a 2-dimensional way by counting artificially simulated repetitive cyclical events in their clockworks, the ITEM determine time in a 3-dimensional space continuously.
ITEM determine and display the “real solar time” and the “mean solar time”. Thus, time can be perceived by humans where time originates - space and time are intrinsically woven.
ITEM has been made from the most innovative and most exclusive high technologies representing the new millennium.
As a high technology object for time measurement the ITEM symbolizes a breakthrough new definition in chronometry as well as in illustration of time, date and space. In the ITEM phenomena of nature and physical laws are transferred into a dimension which can be perceived by humans.
The appearance of ITEM goes beyond the conventional conception and presentation of time.
