Bernard Newsam's Universal Time
My father, the late Bernard Newsam (b.1913 d.1994), held some unique views on the nature of time and space. In particular he maintained that conventional three-dimensional space is an artefact of the human mind, and that (in his own words) "time is the actual stuff of extension of the universe". Various documents about Bernard, his life and his work are presented here.
