A quad cycle is four sun cycles. Yatu and Norm have been finding that we're able to plan out in quad cycles. We've been looking for something to replace the granularity level of weeks, since we've already replaced days which are the building block of a week.
This also aligns with the broader notion of a "four day work week", so our minds could sprint for a quad cycle and rest for a quad cycle.

Time is something that needs to be found.
I lost track of time.
I can’t find the time.
We’ve lost 14 minutes.
Time as a material takes time to work with, and the duration of feedback loops are dependent on the form of time you're exploring.
Would anyone be interested in embedding a tiny Paragonday Systems clock on a website?
Not there yet (or else you would've already seen it :] ) – and would love to have one on my personal site, curious to hear about other worlds it could live in.
Time could be a character that we interact with. Instead of asking the world, "What time is it?" we could ask Time, "How are you doing?" or something similar. Our clocks then become a manifestation of the character of Time.
Thinking about how time was represented by a finite motion of the pendulum — definitely interested in using other metaphors like TIME IS A BLACK HOLE or TIME IS A COMPUTER to represent its infiniteness.
