Definitions for "CLOCK"
A machine of great moral value to man, allaying his concern for the future by reminding him what a lot of time remains to him. A busy man complained one day: "I get no time!" "What's that you say?" Cried out his friend, a lazy quiz; "You have, sir, all the time there is. There's plenty, too, and don't you doubt it -- We're never for an hour without it." Purzil Crofe
A machine for measuring time, indicating the hour and other divisions; in ordinary mechanical clocks for domestic or office use the time is indicated on a typically circular face or dial plate containing two hands, pointing to numbers engraved on the periphery of the face, thus showing the hours and minutes. The works of a mechanical clock are moved by a weight or a spring, and it is often so constructed as to tell the hour by the stroke of a hammer on a bell. In electrical or electronic clocks, the time may be indicated, as on a mechanical clock, by hands, but may also be indicated by direct digital readout, with the hours and minutes in normal Arabic numerals. The readout using hands is often called analog to distinguish it from the digital readout. Some clocks also indicate the seconds. Clocks are not adapted, like the watch, to be carried on the person. Specialized clocks, such as atomic clocks, may be constructed on different principles, and may have a very high precision for use in scientific observations.
a special kind of Sensor whose value is "real-world time." A Clock must have exactly one value, which is "current time." See Chapter 4
a counter driven by a regular source of ticks
a recurrent A process is a naturally occurring or designed sequence of operations or events, possibly taking up time, space, expertise or other resource, which produces some outcome

A figure or figured work on the ankle or side of a stocking.
To ornament with figured work, as the side of a stocking.
A knitted or embroidered ornament on a stocking, usually running up the side.
also known as a molecular clock. One of the most important assumptions that is often made using molecular data is the existence of a clock. In other words, there is sometimes an assumption being made either implicitly or explicitly that the rate of change of residues in molecules is approximately constant. Making this assumption is fraught with dangers, but a great many empirical studies have shown that (with some errors) the assumption of a clock often holds true. If there are some good reference points (say, fossils or significant geological events) it is sometimes possible to use molecular data to estimate the time of events for which there is no other alternative.
a molecular mechanism, while a system uses the molecular mechanisms to produce overt rhythms
a term to describe the entire biological mechanism that regulates natural occurring rhythms in an organism
