Connect this video to the person featured on the following Scottish bank note .

John Cage’s masterpiece 4’33” was nicknamed “Absolute Zero” because it seemed as if all motion stopped when the piece was being performed ( and not because of the popularly believed notion that 4 minutes 33 seconds was equal to 273 seconds ) . The person on the bank note is Lord Kelvin who gave the Kelvin scale with its zero at -273 degrees celsius . Absolute zero is the temperature at which all molecular motion stops relative to the rest of the body .
