Fading Hertz

<-Click here
Width, length, height and time... the four dimensions by which we measure tangible stuff. Funny thing about that last dimension. Look at this wall in downtown Lancaster. See the painted sign. Look real closely and you can make out an ad for Hertz car and truck rentals. But time lends a patina to the moment which tells as much about this wall as its physical measurements.

There's a very odd thing about time as a measurement. Not only does it fix an image in a moment, just as surely as the other dimensions. But it also slowly erases all of the others. And then finally, it becomes the only dimension which also erases itself. Time is the only lethal measure. It will extinguish everything... which is why I call this "Fading Hertz".
