Some people who have distinguished themselves by their originality, tenacity and honour:
"... Supposing that the bodies act upon the surrounding space causing curving of the same, it appears to my simple mind that the curved spaces must react on the bodies, and producing the opposite effects, straightening out the curves. Since action and reaction are coexistent, it follows that the supposed curvature of space is entirely impossible - But even if it existed it would not explain the motions of the bodies as observed. Only the existence of a field of force can account for the motions of the bodies as observed, and its assumption dispenses with space curvature. ALL LITERATURE ON THIS SUBJECT IS FUTILE AND DESTINED TO OBLIVION." — Nikola Tesla
“The reasons for such an irrational, Pavlovian-like stance of the Establishment towards the environmental perspectives of TSEs probably hangs upon issues that are more to do with protecting academic egos, professional reputations and the vested interests of the TSE institutions/key advisors, than with promoting sound scientific argument. But the main reason must undoubtedly stem from the fear of massive compensation claims, should issues such as government mandated use of copper chelating ‘OP warblecides’ .."

"When we review the evolution of modern physical theory to appraise the direction in which we are now moving as a preliminary to charting a different course, it is apparent that the outstanding general trend in the theoretical development has been the gradual loosening of the ties between fundamental theory and the facts of everyday life. Beginning with Einstein's introduction of the concept of physical quantities whose actual magnitude varies with the position of the observer, the divergence has increased at an ever accelerating rate until the latest theoretical developments have passed completely beyond the bounds of objective reality and have placed the basic processes of nature in what Bridgman calls "a shadowy domain which he (the physicist) cannot even mention without logical inconsistency.""
