The Heresies

Twelve articles, comprising eight heresies, a sermon, a confession and two notes on the combined worlds of Quantum Mechanics and Relativity. Together, they suggest a new way to see the fundamental world. They are intended to prompt you to new thoughts in a subject that has become too rigid.
