In our first supposition this voyage is identical with that of light. Light has
occupied 60,000 tenths of seconds to go from the Earth to the point in space
where you are. Your voyage and that of light have co-existed. Now if instead of
flying with just the same velocity as light, you had flown a little less quickly, and if
you had employed a thousandth part of a second more to arrive at the same point
, instead of always seeing the same moment of the lightning, you would have
seen, successively ...

The initial rate of recovery of the field is generally such that if it had remained
uniform the whole field destroyed by the discharge would have been regenerated
in a few seconds. Transference of electricity between the atmosphere and the
earth in showers and thunderstorms Lightning. From the sudden changes which
are produced in the electric field at the surface of the earth by the passage of
lightning discharges at known distances, we may deduce the electric moments of

The vertical electric force at the ground due to a thunder-cloud does not generally
much exceed the sudden change which occurs when a lightning discharge
passes; very frequently each flash suddenly reverses the sign of the potential
gradient, which again within a few seconds recovers its original sign. After each
discharge the electric field tends to return to the value which it had before the
discharge, the curve of recovery of the field frequently approaching the
exponential form.

This was one of the very moments they had trained so long for. Every soldier
within Festung was ready within seconds of hearing the loud bellows from deep
within the woods. The chiefs had their ants assembled and ready for the fight. As
the oncoming enemy pushed the outer squads back towards the fortress, they
knew that there would be an entire army of backup waiting for them at the inner
perimeter. Lightning and his squad fought as long and hard as they could. Stormy

Within seconds we were third in line and Amaji was right in front of us on a raised
platform. The first thing I saw was her wide smile and sparkling eyes, in an
ageless face. She was beaming love straight out to the next man in line. He
stepped up onto the platform to face her and then knelt down in front of her lap.
She reached out and gathered that man into her bosom and then held him there
for a few moments, wrapped in the embrace of a comforting mother. My heart
melted. This was ...

Seconds later came the howl of the incoming shells; it just time enough for the
sheer horror to register to before the moment of impact. Four shells exploded
among an entire infantry ... Lais wrote of the endless moments before the German
barrage fired: “Each shell scores a direct hit. If they shoot again, it is the end of a
fine march, if not ... Lightning flashes in the horizon, the explosion of the guns
shortly afterward and is music to our ears. The Sabbath of Hell has begun. 4600

For my parents, it was Where were you on September 11, 2001? For Grandma it
was John Kennedy's assassination, and before that it was Pearl Harbor. This was
going to be that bad. I didn't quite know how or why yet, but I felt it. A few seconds
later most of the screen cleared for a moment, and then somebody appeared,
same shot, in all of them. It was a black woman—short, judging from the
shoulders on either side of her—and she looked out of breath, like she'd run all
the way to ...

An example or two will make this clear. lmagine that we want to animate that
famous moment in prehistory when one of our ancestors discovered fire. We'll
first create a scene, perhaps the mouth of a cave. Our character might be
sleeping when a huge lightning bolt zaps the ground beside him. Let's say that
this dim-witted caveman fails to stir during the first smashing bolt. He snores on. A
second blast manages to bum off his fur clothing. He continues sleeping
peacefully. Eventually ...
