THE IMAGINARY ABSOLUTE

THE IMAGINARY ABSOLUTE Gustav Köln was a physicist for life. His work had been all that mattered to him, but he had recently taken a wife –
a dedicated co-worker named Kim.             She’d always been worshipfully supportive to scientific quests and inquiry, but she had turned quite clearly abortive

DARK DRIVER

DARK DRIVER What was there to slow cosmic inflation, which occurred shortly after the Big Bang? Nothing obstructed this fomentation, which from an infinitely dense point sprang. The claim is expansion somehow reduced its speed, the second after Creation, (yet, through observation, it’s been deduced there’s still light-speed-limit violation). As though this were viewed – […]
