Loose Ends

Maintained by suitti@uitti.net, Stephen Uitti
Did I make perfect sense? Even Einstein (100 years since he wrote the papers introducing Relativity and Quantum Mechanics, 50 years since he died) left a few loose ends. General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics are 1) the most successful theories to date on explaining how the Universe behaves, and 2) are known to be incompatible. They can't both be right.

Perhaps this is what Douglas Adams meant when he said that the whole question of Life, The Universe, and, and, everything, is 'What is 6 x 9?', and the answer to the above question is '42'. (BTW, he said that he was not thinking in base 13).
