FOREWORD

The inspiration for this undertaking began in the mid-1950's as a result of an encyclopaedic reference to Albert Einstein. Within this reference were diagrams depicting the paradoxical effects of high-speed travel on both clocks and rulers. My childhood memory of those diagrams is still vivid as is my initial reaction that such effects were somehow too strange to be true. During the late 1960's, while studying aerodynamics in the United States Air Force, I again became interested in Einstein's theories, although no alternative solutions became evident. In 1988, during a transition from the practice of law to a more enjoyable vocation, I focused my attention upon Einstein's postulates in earnest. The consequences of that consideration constitute the substance of this short book.
