The Time Traveller
Ronald L. Mallett
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Ron Mallett was just 10 when his father died suddenly. Devastated, he found solace in the science fiction of H.G. Wells, believing that if he could build a time machine, he could go back into the past, warn his father and perhaps save his life.
Ronald Mallett is now a professor of theoretical physics. Remarkably, this working-class African American boy from the Bronx stuck with his vision, overcoming poverty and prejudice in the pursuit of his obsession. This is the story of his extraordinary journey of self- and scientific discovery. With simple language and elegant metaphor he lays out his theories and presents the reader with what is an actual blue print for a time machine.A dramatic and compelling memoir, it is also a brilliant introduction to a riveting but generally baffling subject, and a truly inspirational account of astonishing achievement.
used his talent as a performer to be transferred into special services. From that point on, he realized that “my talent was the only thing that made me a little different from everybody else, and it was all that I could hope would shield me because I was different.” Through Davis’s story, I began to understand that I, too, might find protection from prejudice by utilizing my skills and talents in a way that would make it difficult for bigots to get to me. This was a defining moment for me in
(1642–1727) was a “force depending on matter for its existence, Einstein’s giant step forward liberated gravitation from matter by describing it geometrically instead—as a curvature of space-time.” If there was any missing link in the reading I was doing in the air force, it came to me when I located a used copy of a 1949 edition of a book published upon the occasion of Einstein’s seventieth birthday. Albert Einstein: Philosopher-Scientist, edited by Paul Arthur Schilpp, contained an essay
expert. If the second expert also found mistakes, then the paper would have been rejected for publication.) On May 8, 2000, my paper “Weak Gravitational Field of the Electromagnetic Radiation and a Ring Laser” appeared in print. Once an article is published, it is widely read by the physics community at large. To date, my fellow physicists have not pointed out errors in my math or science. This work represented my first breakthrough in time-travel research. Although there was no mention of
the state hospital, as there were no affordable care facilities for patients with advanced senility—what would likely be diagnosed today as Alzheimer’s. I went with my mother on Sundays to visit Grandma at the hospital where she was to live out her final years. Once in a while I could glimpse in her vacant eyes the loving woman I had known, but for the most part Grandma left us well before her death. Abject unhappiness is my overriding memory of my Altoona years. Losing interest in school, I
