We say that one Sunrise to another Sunrise at PONTIANAK is 24 Hours. Further, each Hour is divided into 60 minutes and each minute into 60 seconds i.e. 24x60x60 = 86,400 seconds (the basic unit of Time).

2)  Earth Stops Rotating in front of the Sun

Let us now put it to the Acid test and according to the law of the survival of the fittest - think that the Earth stops rotating in front of the Sun. This would mean there would be an eternal Sunrise at PONTIANAK. This would also mean (see Fig. 3) that Half of the Earth facing the Sun would be for ever and ever in the Sunlight and as such have everlasting day whereas the other Half of the Earth away from the Sun would have eternal night. This eternity means 24 hours, 60 minutes, 60 seconds would cease to exist. As such, time would disappear! Or we could say that this Discovery would mean the end of the (survival) concept of Time. But according to the law of survival of the fittest the Equatorial Circumferential distance of: L= 40,075 Kms (24,902 Miles) would remain (survive).
