Origin[edit | edit source]

Robert Hooke was a polymath who researched extensively into the fields of chemistry, physics, mathematics and architecture in the 1600s. As a curator to the Royal Society, his claimed many discoveries, including spring tension, time keeping mechanisms, theory on memory, microbiology and gravity. The last claim brought him into constant dispute with fellow scientist Isaac Newton over the theory’s true creator. Their animosity went so far that Newton destroyed the only known portrait of Hooke when he was inducted into the Royal Society.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Sent as a sort of "dirty bomb" to Isaac Newton, the mechanism was made so perfectly that when it plays, it creates destructive interference with molecular vibration, slowing everything around it to a standstill.
