The Laws of Space and Observation state that time is nonrelative. The current methods of interval measurement do not measure true time but rather a periodic occurrence interval which would be relative to the observer. True (nonrelative) time can only be measured by using a constant, such as the objective speed of light. The interval it takes the speed of light to travel a preset distance in the observer's own space and will always be constant and not subject to relativity as the ratio of dobj (objective distance) to cobj (objective velocity of light) will always be constant to any observer. Such a device as conceived and outlined herein shall be referred to as a "light clock."
