A scholarly inquiry...
Suppose we take a method Einstein used extensively and apply it to current problems in QM and relativity?

The Author

I received a Ph.D. degree in intellectual history from Northwestern University [Evanston, Illinois]. I taught for 13 years including stints at Eastern Michigan University and Clemson University. In 1982 I joined the staff of Sandia National Laboratory [Livermore, California] to pursue my scientific interests more directly. I left Sandia in 1999 and have since held science and technology positions at various companies in Silicon Valley. My research interests center on the interpretations of quantum theory and special relativity. I currently reside in Southern California.

Unfortunately there is a lot of crackpot physics and physics theories on the web that make extravagant claims. This site is not one of them. My book is the product of 30 years of thought and work, endless revisions, and several attempts to kill it once and for all. It survived those attempts and became stronger for it. It has been vetted by a professional philosopher. I hope the reader finds some of its ideas worthwhile.
