For the smallest time resolution required, we might suppose that at some
point in the
future there might be a need to account for transmission delay from one part
of a computer to another. The smallest location that I can imagine being of
interest even in a future computer is the diameter of a hydrogen atom,
about 0.1 nm. The time for light to travel this distance is about 3 as, or
about 2^-58 s.
