The clock at the library in downtown Salem, Virginia evinces a temporal anomaly.  It stands between the big library building and a Little Free Library installation along the sidewalk.  You’ll have noted the macrocosm/microcosm at play, as we did.  There is a vacuum between macrocosm and microcosm, “a void of apparent godlessness” (Franklyn Wepner). You’ll recall Isaac Newton and René Descartes’ watchmaker analogy that argued for the existence of an intelligent designer of a mechanical universe.  In a void of such a watchmaker … well, QED.
