Did I get it backwards? I. e., is this true --

ctime <= mtime <= atime. ln other words, an mtime change ripples to atime
and a ctime change ripples to ntime which ripples to atime? Put another
way, you can change atime without affecting mtime or ctime. You can change
mtime without affecting ctime, but atime will be affected. If you change
ctime, then mtime and atime are affected. Would that be correct?
