Faster than light: was Einstein wrong? book
Contemporary physics rests on two great pillars. Einstein’s theories describe the large-scale structure of space and time. Quantum theory describes the small-scale behaviour of matter within space and time: the behaviour of molecules, atoms and other particles. Roughly, one describes the container, and the other the contents. Although research continues, the two traditions are so much at variance that no one has been able to combine them into a single, unified theory or “theory of everything”. Quantum theory emerged piecemeal over many years and its development was driven by experimental results and mathematical guesses. Like most committee efforts, quantum theory was a patchwork of conflicting motivations and strategies. There is one central obstacle to unification: even today no one really understands quantum theory.
