In the course of using essential theories of science in my decades-long attempt to demystify the heavens, I became increasingly frustrated by ideas that just didnt harmonise. If we were uncovering the truth, I reasoned, then the component parts devised by disparate specialists should dovetail neatly together. But they dont. Classical Newtonian Mechanics doesnt see eye-to-eye with Einsteins Relativity- both are sneered at by Quantum Mechanics.

Theories highly successful in their own right seemed when compared with one another to be describing different universes. That was a train-smash, both for me and for the progress of science, as I understood it. This book is an account of that crisis. But fear not, its not a high-tech science report for uber-geeks. Its a storybook filled with myth and adventure. Its science unplugged. Take your time. This heresy will change your life.

Hilton Ratcliffe, Astronomer with a Mental Squint.
