Notes

  • Dedication: to the memory of my father.
  • It requires the idea of the field as the representative of reality, in combination with the general principle of relativity, to show the true kernel of Descartes' idea; there exists no space 'empty of field'. (Einstein: Relativity)
  • Epigraph: Hence I observe how needful it is for me to enter into darkness, and to admit the coincidence of opposites beyond all grasp of reason and there to seek truth...(Nicholas of Cusa, 15th Century)
