Telling The Time In A Hundred Rooms

By the use of an electric current a hundred clocks in a hundred rooms can be so controlled, or synchronized, by a single pendulum,, that all show exactly the same time. The diagram shows the synchornonme system. the master clock consists only of a pendulum which pulls round the wheel once every half minute, causing the vane c. to withdraw the catch and allow the gravity lever to fall. The roller runs down the bracket fixed on the pendulum rod, pushes the pendulum aside, and forces the upright arm of the gravity lever to touch the point of the screw in the end of the amature.Thus the circuit of the coil electromagnetic is closed, and the current from the battery of the cells flows through the dials all over the building. The clock faces have no pendulums behind them; they are known as impulse dials and consist, as shown in the right hand corner, of a large wheel actuated by a magnet to work other wheels. The pointers on these dials advace half a minute while the magnet attracts the amature and throws the lever up on its catch again. The magnet behind the dial receives the impulses which attract the armature, moving the lever so that the click picks up another tooth of the wheel. In this way the spring propels the wheel, and the minute hand attached to it, one half minute. Thus every dial is affected by the master clock.
As I begin to try and look at things at a different, yet unified, point of view regarding God to Freud, and how faith became psychology that leads to the revised version of Darwin’s ‘Evolution of the Species’ in ration to Facebook… I must revert to older resources, and points of reference then we commonly know of and rely on for today.

2 Corinthians 7:9
Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance, for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing.
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty, to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Note: The original draft of the constitution read: ‘We the Peoples of the States of New Hampshire, Massachusetts’, etc. As it was probable that some of the states would not ratify, the names of the states were omitted in the final draft, but there was no intention of overruling the powers of the states.

THE GOOD GREAT MAN
Here is a short poem which may be described as a gem in every sense. The noble and inspiring thought which it contains is expressed in language of simple beauty and dignity. The lesson it teaches us is one easy to understand, if difficult to put in practice! For the more we know of life, the more sure shall we be that the poet is right in thinking ‘goodness and greatness are not means, but ends. ‘There is a familiar saying: ‘Virtue is its own reward.’ This means that to do the right thing for the sake of the right, is the greatest reward that virtue can obtain. That is the lesson to be learned from this fine little poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, the author of THE ANCIENT MARINER.
How seldom, friend, a good great man inherits
Honour and wealth, with all his worth an pains!
It seems a story from the land of spirits
when any man obtains that which he merits
Or any merits that which he obtains.
Reply to the above…
For shame, dear friend! Renounce this canting strain!
What wouldst thou have a good great man obtain?
Wealth, title, dignity, a gilded chain,
Or throne of corses which his sword hath slain?
Greatness and goodness are not means, but ends.
Hath he not always treasures, always friends,
The good great man? Three treasures,
love and light,
And calm thoughts, equable as infant’s breath;
And three firm friends, more sure than day or night
Himself, his Maker, and the angel Death.
