With excerpts from Ives' correspondence, this book contains Dean Turner's "The Einstein Myth" plus a condensation of "Euclid or Einstein" by J.J. Callahan and papers and comments by others. These insights open the door to greater freedom of creative research, speculation, progress and practical discovery in the fields of physics and cosmology. The notes alone reveal startling, unexpected, little-known facts that read like a mystery novel.
One of the most remarkable publications in the history of relativity theories, but nonetheless put aside by academic physics. To understand the importance of this collection one needs to know who Ives was: one of the pioneers of the atomic clock.
