Synopsis:
  • "Chaos" theory: a slight change in the initial conditions results in large-scale differences
  • Eternal return: every isolated system returns after a finite time to its initial state
  • The speed of light is the maximum speed
  • Mass depends on speed
  • No experiment can discriminate between a state of uniform motion and a state of rest
  • Lorentz transformations
  • Non-Euclidean geometries have the same logical and mathematical legitimacy as Euclidean geometry
