The magnetic connection theorem of ideal magnetohydrodynamics by Newcomb (Newcomb W. A., Ann. Phys. (N.Y.), 3 (1958) 347) and its covariant formulation are rederived and reinterpreted in terms of a “time resetting” projection that accounts for the loss of simultaneity in different reference frames between spatially separated events.
