Re: [spoon-discuss] Thoughts toward a universal Nomic calendar

Cementing, or even concretifying, the glorious dominion of B Nomic
over the world is a good thing. But if the recognizer were delayed
>12 hours, the calendar would be off by a day, creating chaos years
down the line. Writs of Delay would also complicate matters. What if
time progressed even when the clock was off? Some nweeks might be very
short, but the calendar would be predictable.
