How Do We Measure The Flow...

of time with clocks? I'd be very interested how our clocks of today manipulate the space-time continuum to measure the flow of time. Our clocks are based on Cesium doing the macarena which in fact is also based on our own existence, being the rotation of the earth around the sun. That is no way to measure something that is actually physical.

The measurement of entropy to me would be mystery. How do you measure it? I don't know. What I do know is that time isn't absolute. Perhaps we should be measuring something that is absolute to witness the progress of events.
