<p>After graduating in EE, I succumbed to curiosity about non-tech issues and got a Ph.D. in business economics. This steered me into a career in high-tech product management in big companies and founding a few small ones. I learned a lot about science and technology and avoided the politics of academia, but it wasn't what I would have preferred. I am not sure what I would have preferred that would earn a secure living. Anyway, it is nice to be retired.;My book, Uncommon Knowledge, described at, has one chapter on the non-expanding universe and redshift, one disproving relativity, one defining the cause of gravity, one defining the cause of electromagnetism, one on the science of consciousness, two on the subject of ancient aliens (you may have seen the shows of this name on the History Channel), a short introduction, and a short summary. One can read only the sections of interest, since the chapters stand largely on their own.;The mainstream Relativity Theorem is;If you think relativity is false, you don't understand it.;If you don't understand it, you can't prove it false.;This reduces to;If you think relativity is false, you can't prove it false.</p>
