    Smile A Brief Space of Time

    Is the phrase "A Brief Space of time" an oxymoron or a profound understanding of spacetime?

    Yes, perhaps only if you are relativistic or a muon!

    Around these parts, the phrase is " A brief span of time."
    So I suspect there is no special relativistic insight among the locals.

    A brief spanner of time might give you a temporal wrench.
