NOTE: the following is an exchange of emails between Vernon Gerard and a close personal friend, Dr. Rodney King. This post will be edited if further installments arrive.

 

V. Gerard:

Nature and Nature’s laws lay hid in night:
God said, Let Newton be! And all was light.

Then the Devil hailing Ho!
Said let Einstein be! And restored the status quo.

————

R. King:

But God said Wait!
Behold a changing thought abounds:
For other folks at heaven’s gate
A Multiple Universe now surrounds!

————

V. Gerard:

Said the devil not outdone,
String Theory is now the one
Understand it can you?
Most people have no clue.

It needs dimensions nine,
But your maths is fine.
That old devil is a bluff,
Pythagoras is just enough.

————

R. King:

Said God Divine, dimensions nine
Are not my thing: I need more string!
To ignore Time may be a crime….
I’m giving my Blessing to Superstring!
