TIL: quartz crystal in a computer that controls the speed of a computer (not date/time): they physically shape it like a tuning fork so that it oscillates like a tuning fork at the frequency they want.
The electricity physically distorts the quartz crystal tuning fork so that it behaves like a tuning fork and vibrates. The physical vibrations then turn back into electricity via the magic of quartz but this time as PULSES. On off. On off. On off. On off. The heartbeat of a computer and its pace. It may slow down higher up in the system but at this low level, this is the tempo of the song the computer is playing.
oh! wait, no the suction is equivalent to speeding up the tempo of the song.
I think I can relate conflicting pace/tempo differences between two clock sources to hallway vacuum/pressure.
Middle of the space of doors, there is an air pressure that is your own.
A suction tries to pull you towards.
Your clock is going at its natural pace.
A slower tempo tries to encourage you to relax and slow down.
