Shrinkage works both ways, but when frames are brought back to relative 
rest, the one that has experienced greater acceleration has experienced 
less duration. However, I don't think GW really believes in relativity, 
or at least it doesn't have physical meaning in the New Sun books, and 
by extension, the Long and Short Suns.
