|Kat Wrote:And, too....how long does a cycle FEEL? I mean, does it feel like a year when you're in there, or is it really just a smaller unit of time, much like, say, another planet might have a longer or shorter "day" or "year" than we do on earth but in reality it's the same amount of time, just defined differently than here (let's not throw relativity into this)? In which case 50 cycles would just feel like a real-world year, and each cycle, while technically being a "year" in the computer, still only seems like what it is, about a week in the real world? I assume the former, because of Flynn's comment that "hours there is only a few minutes in the real world" (I paraphrase), so I think it's safe to assume that it did seem like hours inside rather than a few minutes, but...|
I haven't got a CLU(pun intended), but the Tron Wiki has this to say:
" * 1 minute in reality = 1 hour on the Grid
* 1 day in reality = 1,440 minutes in reality = 1,440 hours (approximately 60 days) on the Grid
* 1 year in reality = 525,600 minutes in reality = 525,600 hours (approximately 21,900 days, or 60 years) on the Grid
* Ergo: 21 years in reality x 60 years on the Grid ˜ 1,260 years, as experienced by Flynn
This calculation would seem consistent with Castor's statement regarding Clu having sought out Flynn's identity disk for "1,000 cycles".
Another way to interpret the numbers could be as follows:
* 1 millicycle would presumably be 1/1000th of a cycle
* 1 millicycle = 8 Grid hours
* 1,000 millicycles = 8,000 Grid hours = 1 cycle
* 1,000 cycles = 8,000,000 hours ˜ 913 years "
