Weller, a divisional commander, had reported that in his sector the Russians had gone over to the offensive. An infantry detachment, equivalent in size to a reinforced battalion, had succeeded in breaking through to the railway station. It was with this seemingly insignificant incident that he had felt his first prickle of anxiety.

“Thirty-six characters from different stages of life – representations of different times – interact in one room, moving in loops, observed by a static camera.” – Zbig Rybczynski
Explaining how particle clones live in multiple states in the same place, within the same short duration of time, inches away from each other is difficult to explain using descriptive language of everyday common sense experience.
Theoretical physicists have proved space is flappable – like bedsheets twisting wild on washing lines in powerful gusts of wind – by using symbols, equations, algebraic expressions, functions and differential calculus. Something like “3World in 4Time” can be proved with mathematical formulae.
Poets have gut feeling about bent light. Overrides the need to scientifically solve measurement problems of warped time and space. Just feel it.
Artists can do it too. Although Zbigniew Rybczyński’s Tango was once freely accessible via social video, only a Tango website link is currently available. Does appear Rybczynski’s animation has been influential on filmmaker Michel Gondry. Best known for The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Gondry directed two pop videos illustrating near-cloning in an entertaining style.

Captain Stelling, of the Zone Police, devoted his spare time to drilling the boys; Prof. Abbott, the botanist, undertook to teach them something of natural history and botany and took them on many a long tramp into the forest where a veritable wonderland was revealed to them; Dr. Johnson, of the Hospital Staff, gave them lessons in first aid and emergency treatment, and even Major Wilkinson, of the Engineers, found time to forget his chronic grouch against the world and took the enthusiastic “Scouts” under his wing and showed them how to build rough but serviceable bridges, how to measure distances and altitudes, how to make maps and how to accomplish a thousand and one useful things with only their hands and machetes for tools and with materials supplied by a bountiful tropic nature.

– Professor Wilson, what is 3World in 4Time?
– 4Time means simultaneously dilated durations of 3World and 3World means topographies of:

– Thank you, Professor. Now I am a lot wiser.
