Many conventionally-normal people have great difficulty imagining and feeling the normal sense of time of an alternatively-normal person. In the mistaken belief that it’s already midday for everyone, they phone their friends, relatives and .business contacts during their night time, thereby putting a strain on good relationships. This can be avoided, because now early risers can check, before making that early morning call or visit, what time it is for their alternatively-normal fellow human. By shifting the time an average 4 hours back, the Delta t Alternatively-Normal Time Service shows the corresponding current alternatively-normal time.
Here the conventionally-normal person discovers that for his alternatively-normal contact person, the time is not already 11am, as it is for him, but rather only 7am, time to turn over again for a bit more shuteye.
A caesium atomic clock at the PTB (Physikalisch-Technische-Bundesanstalt – the State Institute for Physics and Technology) provides our server with the current time which is the basis for our calculation of Alternatively-Normal Time. Delta t may therefore rightfully claim to offer the world’s first online alternatively-normal time service supported by a caesium clock. A special thank you to the PTB team whose conventionally-normal time service makes ours possible.
