yea. ok, so lets say ive got this antimatter clock merrily spinning away, backwards, suspended via maglev in a vacuum chamber. then, to be ornery, i adjust the magnetic field slightly to tilt the clock to the side... how does the clock respond? does it actually tilt? that would require that it move forward in time...

or am i just picturing your anology wrong, mike? i find this very nonintuitive...
