The greenwich time is used in TORI, as it seems to correspond the smooth processes in Physics, while other, so called "conventional" times suffer sudden jumps every year, making the measurements of time of event pretty approximate.
Fortunately, the inventors of the "conventional" time did not yet realize that they could order to measure the temperature in Fahrenheit scale during the winter and in Celsius one while summer. An additional invention of such a kind would be season-dependent relation between gram and kilogram; for the similar reasons, as in the case of time, one could declare that one kg is 1024 g during winter, and just 1000 g during the summer..
Time in Physics
Time is scientific concept, one of four coordinates in the Minkovsky space, that is principal in the classical physics.
In the non–relativistic mechanics, time appears as universal parameter; the state of any system is supposed to be function of time.
