  Description: The book, What Einstein Did Not See, presents a paradigm for understanding time and space. Its author, Thomas W. Sills, will demonstrate how three new concepts, timespace, universal time, and universal reference frames, can create a new framework for physical space. In this simple approach, Euclidean geometry describes the complex nature of higher dimensions with basic physics principles. Attendees will learn how time can be redefined as a vector of timespace and a scalar of universal time. The invisible world of four-dimensional space will be examined using four three-dimensional projections from four-dimensional space. With this paradigm the twin trip becomes visible, contraction of the fourth dimension equates to time dilation, and Einstein’s quote, “no empty space exists,” becomes clear in a new way. The first 20 arriving attendees receive a free copy of the book. Available at, or at your local bookstore. Now on Since 1974 Dr. Sills is an editorial consultant for the production of college physics and astronomy textbooks.
