Actually wait a minute, if I don't read it, I won't need to build a time machine and then I won't end up going back to ... f$#ken causal paradoxes
Better send the notes first eh

His talent was in seeing the numbers when he'd do thought experiments. I don't see the numbers when I think through issues like General or Special Relativity. They are secondary to me. I see the visual representations in my mind of what I perceive to be happening, then compare them to the provable and/or accepted facts, and adjust accordingly.
I have no way to express, mathematically, the theory I put up. Math is something I am good at in a technical sense, meaning I can make it work for me solving problems I can put my hands on. Math is not something I can use in an abstract sense, to explain an idea.
... and I could be completely wrong. I've just never seen physics explored from this angle, which I find odd since it seems obvious to me that one should not simply assume the nature of something so intangible as space-time.
