    Lincoln Barnett and Dr Einstein

    It would require a tremendous amount of time to understand these two minds and their works and philosophies. However in this small book we obtain the depths of the genius that these men were. The greatest mystery of the universe is not the universe. It is man himself! It reveals the lofty and oft misunderstood beliefs that he had about the universe. He had profound and very humble respect for the spirit and the creator. In formulating the complex riddles of nature in a simplified manner this book goes light years beyond. In an ultimate reality of existence this book reveals the fundamental fact of all forces and energy to be intimately linked- unified force field,elctricity,magnetism, gravity and all the rest. It is man that lives in a world created by his senses and within which he is confined and faces the challenge of decoding the various aspects of creation.
    Knowledge is infinite and man has finite mechanisms of his senses, mind and intellect to delve into the unifying harmony that orchestrates a symphony that is melodious ,enchanting, mesmerising and perplexing as we
    go beyond the horizons of our planet earth and peep into the universe.
