Gosling: Hey, who turned out the lights?
LrdPhoenix: So, let me get this straight: Normal crystals break spatial symmetry because the atoms which make them up can only exist in certain points in space at any given time. With these time crystals, they break temporal symmetry because the atoms can only exist in certain points in space at certain specific times, thus forcing them to move as the spot that they were in is no longer a viable location to exist at in the overall system.
tarnok: FormlessOne: Yay! Perpetual motion devices, now at the atomic level!This is what I was wondering. The way "time crystal" is defined sounds an awful lot like a perpetual motion machine to me.
