    Interesting stuff. Regarding the supposedly arbitrary duration, I read that 4mins 33secs, or 273secs, was a deliberate reference to -273ºC, or absolute zero (the temperature at which there is a theoretical absence of all thermal energy, where everything just stops). But then again, whoever wrote that might’ve just been making it up.
