The author of this book runs the quantum field theory discussion forum [...] where anyone can leave objective comments. He studied both quantum mechanics and general relativity before becoming a leading programmer, after his paper predicting the cosmological acceleration correctly in 1996 was censored out by biased pro-string theory "reviewers" and "editors" (evidence is included at the end of the book). This book explains in detail how quantum gravity predicted dark energy quantitatively and accurately in 1996, two years prior to discovery by Perlmutter who - together with Philip Campbell and Karl Zemelis and other censors of progress, suppressed the facts - enabling Perlmutter to go on to collect a Nobel Prize. It also contains thought-provoking analyses of the errors in the Standard Model and the electroweak symmetry breaking mechanism. The details of gauge theory and general relativity are clearly and painstakingly presented as they apply to the problems of quantum gravity and force unification, with amazing pedalogical insights and the problems of "peer" review unbiased censorship of innovations in physics:

"Scepticism is ... directed against the view of the opposition and against minor ramifications of one's own basic ideas, never against the basic ideas themselves. Attacking the basic ideas evokes taboo reactions ... scientists only rarely solve their problems, they make lots of mistakes ... one collects `facts' and prejudices, one discusses the matter, and one finally votes. But while a democracy makes some effort to explain the process so that everyone can understand it, scientists either conceal it, or bend it ... No scientist will admit that voting plays a role in his subject. Facts, logic, and methodology alone decide - this is what the fairy-tale tells us. ...
