Albert Einstein determined that massive objects cause a distortion in space-time, which is felt as gravity.

Theoretical physics: The origins of space and time

“Everything around us — the whole three-dimensional physical world -is an illusion born from information encoded elsewhere, on a two-dimensional chip.” Some researchers believe that physics will not be complete until it can explain not just the behaviour of space and time, but where these entities come from. And to do that, physical theories are going to have to get a lot more strange…

Many physicists believe that entanglement is the essence of quantum weirdness — and some now suspect that it may also be the essence of space-time geometry.

Higgs Boson re-explained

I'm not ashamed to admit that stuff makes more sense to me when it's packaged in a cartoony format. PHD Comics: The Higgs Boson Re-Explained

Theoretical physicist Michio Kaku explains string theory. The most interesting places in universe are beyond our reach with Einstein's theories, and that's where String Theory comes in. String theory takes us before the Big Bang to a multiverse of universes. (Maybe the Big Band was caused by the collision of universes or their fisioning.) Worm holes as time machines...in the memoir, that's exactly what childhood flashbacks seem to be.
