We can now reveal that giant, elaborate, even architectural clockwork has always been the engine that generates fairy tales, and our modern age of disenchantment is directly attributable to newfangled flat clocks and (horrors!) portable digital timepieces. In a nutshell, one can't measure "once upon a time" by a microchip. Begin contemplating where all the giant clocks are, (recalling that Germany's fabled Black Forest contains the vast majority of the world's largest cuckoo clocks), then contemplate the sources of your favorite fairy tales, and a bell will resound in your head. Contemplate also why California's Disneyland is better than Florida's Magic Kingdom (recalling that the elaborate facade behind Disneyland's It's a Small World ride is an enormous, elaborate clock with animated figures emerging to mark the hours). Now you'll have guessed the reason for our pilgrimage last year to the 14th-century fortified East Gate of the town of Warwick, still a working clock tower. Google Earth imagery of the clock tower verifies that the spot violates the laws of space/time. The top of the clock tower is revealed to be ethereal (see first and second pictures below). It's an English version of a "Castle in Spain." At least equally intriguing, an additional warp in space/time is verified: the yellow line that Google overlays to show the route of street traffic bends upward into space as it nears the clock tower. This anomaly isn't a one-off but rather appears in multiple photos and angles (see pictures three and four below). In our final picture, taken more recently by Google's spy cameras, note the optical illusion in the clock tower's windows. We've paired it with an optical illusion by Gary Barwin, to clarify the exact phenomenon (see picture five below). Windows begin as glass and end as stone, and vice versa.
