Faster-than-light Travel, Multiple Dimensions, and Dark Matter

Everyone knows that Einstein said nothing can travel faster than the speed of light, right?  Well, I spent many years studying relativity and cosmology, and eventually I came to realize that Albert Einstein and H.A. Lorentz shared one simple misconception involving Lorentz’ relativistic velocity equations, which stand as the foundation for all of relativity theory.  […]

The Greatest and Grandest Illusion (Part I)- A Relativistic Deception

In my book The Enlightening, I make the following observation:  Both Albert Einstein and H.A. Lorentz conceived of Lorentz’ Relativistic Velocity Transformation equations as describing the entire extent of the universe.  This is clearly supported by Einstein’s relativity theories, including the proposed universal “speed limit” of c.  Lorentz did not disagree with Einstein’s interpretation.  My […]

Thank You

I’d like to thank all the “early adopters” who’ve liked The Enlightening’s Facebook page and/or liked or commented on a post. You and your input are very much appreciated! I will try my best to justify your interest and support. The goal of the page and my posts will be to stimulate some thought regarding […]

Something on the Lighter Side

Seems like everyone likes to read something on the lighter side, now and then. Physicists are no exception, as contended by researchers from the University of Exeter. Just another reason why a physicist would enjoy reading The Enlightening. Here is a brief summary of their findings, from Physics World.


One of the big themes of The Enlightening is that of community effort– a group, or groups of people banding together for a common cause, in order to create something greater than the simple sum of its parts.  As the author of the book, I certainly know that I would have never gotten it “self-published” […]
