Is there a better way to understand Time-Temperature Superposition (TTS) Principle?

Updated: Jul 19, 2021

It has always been a challenging task for me to understand the Time-Temperature superposition principle properly. I wanted a simpler analogy to the TTS principle.

While re-reading this topic today, an idea came up that two bodies of different masses can be balanced on a beam by choosing the right distance from the pivot point of the seesaw. In this way, the height of both the bodies will be same from the ground.

Now for me, it is clear that two different sets of conditions can produce equivalent results. TTS gives transformation in time scale, The length ratio (l1/l2) in my analogy becomes the shift factor (t1/t2) in the TTS principle. What is your opinion?
