Comment:        SHK 13.1906 The Supernatural and Modernity

An orthodox ghost?

... the Popes, who may be most prodigiously impious, and worse then
Infidels; not onely erring in some particular points, concerning the
Faith, but overthrowing all, as he did, that PICUS MIRANDULA speaketh
off, who peremptorily denyed that there is any God... And that other hee
speaketh off, who denyed the immortality of the soule, though after his
death, appearing to one of them to whome in his life time hee had
uttered that his impious conceit, hee told him hee now found, to his
endlesse woe and misery, that soule hee thought mortall to be immortall,
and never to dye.

Richard Field, THE FIFTH BOOKE OF THE CHURCH... (London 1610), Chapter
51, "Of the assurance of finding out the Truth, which the Bishops
assembled in Generall Council have", p.404

I wonder how a thing can exist in the cosmos and NOT be relative to
something else in the cosmos. But I haven't studied physics since high
school, and perhaps I've missed something in Scientific American.

The odd thing about the Theory of Special Relativity is that the one
thing in the cosmos that is not relative to anything is the speed of
light

So it really is the Theory of non-Relativity

David
