Retrodictions, canto 2, quatrain 3

The time goes slow, the length turns thin;
so heavy near the rate of light;
an age’d meets a youthful twin:
the side‑effects of stellar flight.

Commentary by Brother Quark:
These mystics rave sometimes, do they not? Evidently an encounter with the Divine deranges the earthly senses.

Commentary by N. Hellerstein:
This is about relativistic space-time contraction near the speed of light.
