“If time is a river, the past is a mountain spring. It is fixed and can't be moved. But the future! The future is an infinite delta of possibilities. If you can see it you can bend its course to your fancy...” Hieronymous, infamous timehacker.
You understand the flow of time. You are able to capture the substance of time in mechanical devices, and you know how to harness the energy of time to do work. So you make clockwork timehacking devices that bend and break the flow of time, or harness the energy of this flow to your own benefit.
