This was obtained by incredibly subtle and bold imagination which combined the most advanced ideas of physics, mathematics and geometry, on the slender empirical basis of the double role of every mass as the source of gravitation and inertia. And if the experiments become more refined and new facts emerge, then modify the previous equations until they fit — if only temporarily — the newly discovered empirical facts.

His discussion remarks in the regular Wednesday meetings of the Berlin Colloquium were just as brilliant as ever.

It is one of the simplest known exact solutions in general relativity and is regarded as an important example, in part because it exhibits closed timelike curves. He runs from one course to the other, reading textbooks which promise him an easy introduction into the latest findings of the constantly changing experimental and theoretical scenery, and he hopes to find himself a pigeonhole in the increasingly intensified rat race in which he can only maintain himself if he shows proficiency by writing ‘papers’ of a highly specialised and oversophisticated type.
