“By necessity, our story must jump ahead one full year. I start my migration home tomorrow and hope to be there the first week of April. Last year Ozzie arrived in the last week of March and I made it six days later. That was 2013, the year Ozzie got his big surprise with the new nesting platform”.
“I had planned to tell a few stories of last summer and winter, but they will have to wait. Time has just slipped away. The Doctor cannot access time-warp coordinates with his current knowledge; he can’t even slow the rate of time flow, so the stories of last summer and winter will have to wait. But, I am proud to say, we had our first born, Riki, last year and the situation with Angela was finally resolved”.
“Riki is on the right. I am sorry to say that Riki’s sibling died three days later. More on the wisdom of nature later”.
“Time is simply a measurement. I assume you are familiar with classical, non-relativistic physics in which it is a scalar quantity like length, mass and electric charge. Time can be combined mathematically with other physical quantities to derive other concepts such as motion, kinetic energy and time-dependent fields. The unit of time is the second. Most people up until the 20th century thought that time was the same for everyone everywhere. In reality of course, rates of time run differently depending on relative motion. Space-time cannot really be separate entities. We live on a space-time line rather than a timeline; the coordinates are set according to the observer’s relative motion”.
