There are three quatations that are pertinent to the present work. John Keats in the poem, Ode on a Grecian Urn, states: "Beaty is truth, truth beauty, that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know."

If the poet is right, the book Betond the Farthest Star is the most beatiful book ever writte, Another quote from James Russell Lowell's The Present Crisis is: "Truth forever on the scaffold, wrong forever on the throne - Yet the scaffold sways the future and behind the dim unknown standeth God within the shadow, keeping wathc above his own." Considering fifty years of opposition to anything sensible, it is to be hoped that the book will set the record straigth.

First Corinthians, chapter 13, verses 9 and 10: "For we know in part, and we prophesy in part, but when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away."

The above quote from Saint Paul's letter should be taken to heart. In terms of the future of mankind, the present system based on the work of Euclid, Galileo, Newton, and Einstein is fatally flawed. Present physics can be trusted for mechanical velocities but diverges from reality beyond one tenth the velocity of light. It cannot be said that the contributions of past investigators are without value, but each gave only a partial truth.
