One thing I have noticed about Neo-Paganistic Druidism is that it is for the paying Reverence & Respect for anything Circular, Periodic or Repetitive list the Seasons, the passing of the Days, Weeks, Months, Years.
Things Periodic such as how the Blood Flows in Circles around the Body shows this. And there is also how Electricity Transmits Better in an AC Alternating Current. Carts, Wagons and Cars work with Circular Wheels, Gears and Rotating Shafts.
And as Bennathow has shown, Mechanical Clocks work with Turning Circular Gears, Springs and Wheels.
In order to show our Reverence for such things, Ancient Druids & Pagans tended to build Circular Temples, Forts and Ceremonies.
So it is no small wonder that Bennathow has such fond things to say about the Circular Workings of Clocks.
