Hey, Einstein. (Letters).In your article "Getting Warped" (SN: 12/21&28/02, p. 394), you describe Einsteins negative reaction to Newton's proposition that gravity acts instantaneously on two objects. The notion of simultaneous (if not instantaneous) properties in physics is one of the basic notions of quantum physics quantum physics
n. (used with a sing. verb)
The branch of physics that uses quantum theory to describe and predict the properties of a physical system.
See quantum mechanics. . I do not feel that Einstein's "particle-like" description of light makes him (even "ironically") "a builder of the foundations of quantum physics."

I was disappointed to observe in your article the almost universal distortion of special relativity special relativity
The physical theory of space and time developed by Albert Einstein, based on the postulates that all the laws of physics are equally valid in all frames of reference moving at a uniform velocity and that the speed of light from a . What is mind-bending about relativity is not time dilation. Einstein expanded our universe by showing that not only will an observer on the yellow clock (in the article's illustration) conclude that the orange clock is ticking slower, but an observer on the orange clock will conclude that the yellow clock is ticking slower, and both will be correct!
