About the Author
Thad Roberts is a theoretical physicist, philosopher, and adventurer who passionately explores the possibility that quantum mechanics is not exact, but is, instead, an accurate approximation of a deeper deterministic theory. Thad has excavated dinosaur fossils, sailed across the Atlantic in a 55’ sloop, and lived out of a VW Vanagon for 2 years traveling the world for $10 a day. He has worked as an astrophysicist for NASA, and then a flight lead, training astronauts for their EVAs. His life took an infamous twist when, to impress a girl, he literally stole the moon—a story that is captured in the best-selling book “Sex on the Moon”. During his confinement he poured himself into a thorough investigation of Nature’s deepest mysteries—an intellectual adventure that gave form to this book. Thad currently works as a theoretical physicist for a private think tank, and as a motivational speaker for the American Program Bureau, where he shares his story to inspire others to follow their dreams and to let their curiosity propel them to a broader horizon.

Roberts guides readers on an intellectual journey to reach his conclusions, and the tone of Einstein’s Intuition is accordingly heuristic and without hubris as Roberts explores a vision of the universe beyond the Euclidian confines of the traditional 4D view of physical reality. Roberts’s thinking outside the box of Cartesian coordinates is a refreshing break from the limitations imposed by groupthink on the commonly accepted views about the geometry of the physical world. Einstein’s Intuition describes a universe in which space-time is quantized, and the geometry of the this substructure leads to plausible explanations for phenomena that have previously been hidden behind the weasel word of "force," like the weak nuclear force, or that have been written off as being mysteries that the human mind will never comprehend, such as Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle. Roberts’s hypothesis about the geometry of physical space on its smallest scale, and the axioms and theorems that follow from that structure, appears to offer explainable values for the constants of nature, which is a characteristic that is sadly missing in the attempts at grand unified theories proposed by other theorists. Furthermore, by stepping outside the confines of the Copenhagen interpretation, Roberts’s description of physical reality in eleven dimensions appears to reconcile numerous gaps between the theories of quantum mechanics and general relativity.
If Roberts’s array of hypotheses are correct, his book goes beyond simply addressing flaws in the traditional frameworks of scientific understanding. It could very well be an example of iconoclasm on par with a Kuhnian paradigm shift. The ideas presented in Einstein’s Intuition could lead to a sea change in the comprehension of the hard sciences. Furthermore, if Roberts’s ideas are correct, his findings may carry over into other fields of study, and would impact our understanding, not only about the world around us, but also about ourselves and the human condition.
Note to interested readers: The audio book is of limited utility because the visuals are critical for comprehension.
Take Einstein, universally regarded as in intellectual maverick. Einstein didn't just come up with his theory of relativity in isolation. In 1905, the same year that he published his theory of Special Relativity, he also published two other papers that revealed his genius and won him the Nobel Prize.
Thad Roberts: nothing. His accomplishments include stealing lunar rocks from NASA to impress a girl (which he promptly slipped under his mattress so that he could write a book about having sex on the moon), stealing fossils and writing this book while incarcerated. So much for the intellectual maverick.
