Time Crystals

     The following message was delivered via hypercube from a scientist by the name of “John Smith” working at the United Nations Intelligence Taskforce…

Some of you have heard reports of a “time crystal” which silly Earth scientists have dared to attempt to create, which they describe as such:

“Despite being forbidden in equilibrium, spontaneous breaking of time translation symmetry can occur in periodically driven, Floquet systems with discrete time-translation symmetry. The period of the resulting discrete time crystal is quantized to an integer multiple of the drive period, arising from a combination of collective synchronization and many body localization. Here, we consider a simple model for a one-dimensional discrete time crystal which explicitly reveals the rigidity of the emergent oscillations as the drive is varied. We numerically map out its phase diagram and compute the properties of the dynamical phase transition where the time crystal melts into a trivial Floquet insulator. Moreover, we demonstrate that the model can be realized with current experimental technologies and propose a blueprint based upon a one dimensional chain of trapped ions. Using experimental parameters (featuring long-range interactions), we identify the phase boundaries of the ion-time-crystal and propose a measurable signature of the symmetry breaking phase transition.”

It is clear that this is but #FakeScience by the ascertain that the crystals’ patterns repeating not in space, but in time—which ignores the fact that it doesn’t consider the 5th dimension of space, and that time without the relative dimensions in space are useless, even if one were to obtain the Rassilon Imprimatur!

Now, where did I put that sonic screwdriver…
