Reasoning

I followed this chain of reasoning:

By calculation (generator: ["first_parameter@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

12:40am is the first parameter of 12:40am Coordinated Universal Time

12:40am is the first parameter of 12:40am Coordinated Universal Time

By calculation (generator: ["second_parameter@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

Coordinated Universal Time is the second parameter of 12:40am Coordinated Universal Time

Coordinated Universal Time is the second parameter of 12:40am Coordinated Universal Time

By calculation (generator: ["strictequal1@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

12:40am Pacific Daylight Time is strictly equal to 12:40am Pacific Daylight Time

12:40am Pacific Daylight Time is strictly equal to 12:40am Pacific Daylight Time

By calculation (generator: ["now@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

The current time is April 17th 2014, 10:47:05

The current time is April 17th 2014, 10:47:05

I know from locally stored knowledge that:

Fact 1: +0 hours is the time zone differential of Coordinated Universal Time ([fact: ["20030754@trueknowledge.com"]])

Fact 1: +0 hours is the time zone differential of Coordinated Universal Time ([fact: ["20030754@trueknowledge.com"]])

Fact 1
is true for
August 20th 2010, 15:32:54 onwards
([fact: ["933759742@trueknowledge.com"]])

By calculation (generator: ["timeperiodtopoint@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

Fact 1 is true at April 17th 2014, 10:47:05

Fact 1 is true at April 17th 2014, 10:47:05

By calculation (generator: ["first_parameter@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

0 minutes is the first parameter of +0 hours

0 minutes is the first parameter of +0 hours

I know from locally stored knowledge that:

Fact 2: -7 hours is the time zone differential of Pacific Daylight Time ([fact: ["20030752@trueknowledge.com"]])

Fact 2: -7 hours is the time zone differential of Pacific Daylight Time ([fact: ["20030752@trueknowledge.com"]])

Fact 2
is true for
August 20th 2010, 15:32:52 onwards
([fact: ["933759190@trueknowledge.com"]])

By calculation (generator: ["timeperiodtopoint@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

Fact 2 is true at April 17th 2014, 10:47:05

Fact 2 is true at April 17th 2014, 10:47:05

By calculation (generator: ["first_parameter@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

-7 hours and 0 minutes is the first parameter of -7 hours

-7 hours and 0 minutes is the first parameter of -7 hours

By calculation (generator: ["strictequal1@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

January 1st 1, 01:01:01 is strictly equal to January 1st 1, 01:01:01

January 1st 1, 01:01:01 is strictly equal to January 1st 1, 01:01:01

0 minutes
is strictly equal to
0 minutes

-7 hours and 0 minutes
is strictly equal to
-7 hours and 0 minutes

By calculation (generator: ["timepoint_sum@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

January 1st 1, 01:01:01 is the timepoint sum of January 1st 1, 01:01:01 and 0 minutes

January 1st 1, 01:01:01 is the timepoint sum of January 1st 1, 01:01:01 and 0 minutes

December 31st 0 BC, 18:01:01
is the timepoint sum of
January 1st 1, 01:01:01 and -7 hours and 0 minutes

By calculation (generator: ["timepoint_difference@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

7 hours, 0 minutes and 0 seconds is the length of time between the timepoints December 31st 0 BC, 18:01:01 and January 1st 1, 01:01:01

7 hours, 0 minutes and 0 seconds is the length of time between the timepoints December 31st 0 BC, 18:01:01 and January 1st 1, 01:01:01

By calculation (generator: ["difference_between_lengths_of_time@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

7 hours, 0 minutes and 0 seconds is the difference between the scalar quantities 0 minutes and -7 hours and 0 minutes

7 hours, 0 minutes and 0 seconds is the difference between the scalar quantities 0 minutes and -7 hours and 0 minutes

By calculation (generator: ["pinstance@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

Fact 3: 7 hours, 0 minutes and 0 seconds is a length of time

Fact 3: 7 hours, 0 minutes and 0 seconds is a length of time

Fact 3
is true for
all time

By calculation (generator: ["inverse_length_time@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

-7 hours, 0 minutes and 0 seconds is the inverse of 7 hours, 0 minutes and 0 seconds

-7 hours, 0 minutes and 0 seconds is the inverse of 7 hours, 0 minutes and 0 seconds

By calculation (generator: ["sum_local_clock_time_and_length_time@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

5:40:00pm Pacific Daylight Time is the sum of the local clock time and the length of time 12:40am Pacific Daylight Time and -7 hours, 0 minutes and 0 seconds

5:40:00pm Pacific Daylight Time is the sum of the local clock time and the length of time 12:40am Pacific Daylight Time and -7 hours, 0 minutes and 0 seconds

By calculation (generator: ["local_time_equivalent@trueknowledge.com"]) I know that:

12:40am Coordinated Universal Time is equivalent to the local clock time 5:40:00pm Pacific Daylight Time

12:40am Coordinated Universal Time is equivalent to the local clock time 5:40:00pm Pacific Daylight Time

Pacific Daylight Time
is the time zone specified in
5:40:00pm Pacific Daylight Time

I used the following facts to provide this answer:

+0 hours has been the time zone differential of Coordinated Universal Time since at least August 20th 2010, 15:32:54

-7 hours has been the time zone differential of Pacific Daylight Time since at least August 20th 2010, 15:32:52
