This Einstein guy never ceases to amaze me 😉

* One can give good reasons why reality cannot at all be represented by a continuous*

field. From the quantum phenomena it appears to follow with certainty that a finite system of finite energy can be completely

described by a finite set of numbers (quantum numbers). This does not seem to be in accord with a continuum theory, and must lead to an attempt to find a purely algebraic theory for the description of reality. But nobody knows how to obtain the basis of such a theory.

So, possibly, my pet theory is not completely off-track.

To the dismay of my beloved wife and kids, I still try to change the world. It's been hopelessly a work in progress for a few decades now…
I'm passionate about programming techniques and programming languages, interactive 3D, real-time computing, OS design, free software, physics research, religion, the meaning of life, and so much more (see http://c3d.github.io for a few links)…

I’ve twice tried to download your pet theory and it crashes my Acrobat 8.

I am very sorry to hear that. I wonder if many people have the same issue… It’s been generated with TeXmacs, and I read it on quite a number of platforms.
