Notes on an elaborate dodge to get me out of having to do a map. NOT DONE YET!!

Notes- in Ghyll: light propegates *instantaniously*- there is no doppler effect?

... the length of material bodies changes, according as they are moving through the ether or across it, by an amount depending on the square of the ratio of their velocities to that of light.

Broad-Based Relativity! that is, "relative to the body weight of the Speedish Chef, the age of your favorite bindlet ball player"- almost everything in Ghyll requires absurd calculations.

The distance from here to grandma's house depends on grandma's age, your height, and the last time her boyfriend came to call.

Awal Shrinkage smiltch and canora, - Relative to the frequency of heating and cooling.

Bordingbras his hatt! light and matter are interconvertable.

nanit, sugro-nanit Units of *what*

What are magnetic fields shaped like? Could a lot of this crazy physics be the effects of Warboxen?

Light and sound. Distance and Time are not independant. Physical forces aren't conservative.

At TOP SPEED (much lower than C), right angle distance is infinite.

Distance depends on the history of the object...?

Distance = Rate * Time for straight lines, but for curves? So a map of Ghyll is a relativistic map...
