A project considering quantum commonsense, through the concept of time.

What time is it?
A simple question, right? Easily answerable by a glance at your watch, phone, or clock. But what if I asked you across the country? In a mountain? For the exact time?

Some keys are hotter than others.

I put on a comfy pair of sneakers and head out.

It’s 70°F out.
