For over an hour I am trying to decode this slide.

When each machine has its own clock, an event that occurred after another event may nevertheless be assigned an earlier time.

Here event output.o occured after output.c (as output.o occured at 2144 and output.c created at 2143) So, output.o may be assigned earlier time according to slide. But it is assigned 2144 which is not earlier time(2143 is earlier time).

What is this slide trying to say?
