However, I we must probe each timestream in turn, we lose efficiency. As such, it is more effective to use logic circuits and shift charges, and measure the relative times each probe takes to shift a charge back. Power generation should be built into the machine that'll be sitting in 28800:1 time, not wasted where it'll be 1:14400 time.
