A principle of modern cosmology is that so-called space-time is a physically real entity. In Albert Einstein’s theory of General Relativity, light will follow the so-called curvature of space time. For decades, astronomers have claimed to observe the bending of light passing around massive objects, an effect called gravitational lensing. …

Is it possible that the foundational assumptions of the theoretical sciences all express a common misunderstanding? From cosmology, the “queen of the sciences,” a core dogma of the 20th century filtered down through every discipline, constraining our ideas about galaxy and star formation and ultimately (from the same underlying assumptions) …
