'The People behind the Quantum'

'This is the book about the early days of quantum theory,' writes Professor Chris Clarke in a review for the Scientific and Medical Network.

 'It is an engrossing read because as each character enters the scene they are introduced with a careful biographical sketch, so that we can identify with them and share their personal grappling with the ideas as they unfold.'

He concludes that 'the book is unequalled as an exposition of the personalities and ideas on which quantum theory is founded'.

  1. On the nature of reality, a verification:

    The concept that "acausal connections" exist in the space-time
    continuum, was advanced by Professor W. Pauli, Nobel laureate-
    physics, (1945)....

    Based on details forwarded to the research group PEAR, Princeton
    University, a first scientific verification of this principle has been
    obtained. Basically this means that an aspect of "mind" does
    transcend space and time, i.e., precognition.

    One of the main conclusions is an expected supernova explosion
    in Ursa Minor. The star is Kochab, an orange giant, some 120
    plus light years distant. Timeline, year or less....

    NASA comments:

    A supernova has to be within 10 parsecs (30 light years) or
    so to be dangerous to life on Earth. This is because the
    atmosphere shields us from most dangerous radiations.
    Astronauts in orbit may be in danger if a supernova is within
    1000 parsecs or so.
