There are four "Qides of Day" (and two extra Qides: the night-time hours). Each dot on the qidal clock corresponds to one second of the day. The day starts at 6am ().

There is also a 100-year calendar (to the right or below the qidal clock). Each pixel on this calendar corresponds to one hour (grouped into day-chunks with the same colouring as the qides). The calendar begins on the year 2000 (right-click to change to e.g. your birth year).

What is a “qide”?

A qide is a 4-hour division of the day, of which there are 4 during the the approximately 16 hours a person is awake. The name is similar to the ancient term “tide,” which is a 3-hour division of a day. Since the human dopamine cycle is also four hours long, qides are an appropriate structure for the major parts of your day (such as meals).
