当我们在谈论“夜晚”这个词的时候我们是否是在讨论一个时间上的概念?

夏天的伦敦晚上八九点太阳还在天上,冬天午后三四点太阳就落山了,我不习惯在天亮的八九点说这是在晚上,也不习惯吃过午饭之后就到了晚上。我开始思考时间和光的关系(日晷就是一个通过光照计时的仪器)。

这个装置主体是一个陶制的球,通过设计好的马达,有一个持续稳定的转速,速度和地球自转速度相同,自转轴与地面的角度根据展览地伦敦纬度设置为51.5°。这一系列设计试图创造一个能够模仿地球运行星球,达到有一面永远在太阳的另一面,而有一面永远面向太阳,即使在地球的夜晚,它也面朝太阳(类似与地球的极昼与极夜)。在这样一个模型上,讨论开头的那个问题,这是否是一个没有时间的星球。

 

Are we talking about a notion of time as we talk about the “night”?

TIn contrast of winter, the summer in London is sunny, with long day and short night. It doesn't be night until nine o'clock. I am not accustomed to say it is night when the sun doesn't fall, not used to live in night after lunch immediately. I began to think about the relationship between time and light (sundial is a time-measuring instrument).
 

The main body of the installation is a ceramic ball, it has a smae persistent speed with the Earth through the design of the motor, the angle between rotation axis and the ground is 51.5 ° according to the London latitude. This series of designs try to create a planet like the planet, and one side of this planet is always back to the sun, and the other side is facing the sun forever, it faces the sun even on Earth's night (similar to Earth's polar day and polar night). On such a model, to discuss the question in the beginning of the article, is this a planet without time?
