A novel theory in physics in which no distinction is made between past and future, and which may challenge some of Einstein's work, was proposed by Dr. Gilbert N. Lewis, chemist of the University of California in a paper read last night at the dinner of the Society of Arts and Sciences at the Hotel Biltmore.

Dr. John E. Jackson
"The Times of July 21 [1930] contains an article stating that Walter Russell challenges the Newtonian theory of gravitation. This artist, who is admittedly not a scientist, goes on to say that the fundamentals of science are so hopelessly wrong and so contrary to nature, that nothing but a major surgical operation upon the present primitive beliefs can ever put them in line for a workable cosmogenetic synthesis'. . .
"It seems to me it would be more fitting for an artist of Mr. Russell's acknowledged distinction in his own field, to remain in it, and not go trespassing on 'ground which even angels fear to tread'. "For nearly three hundred years no one, not even a scientist, has had the temerity to question Newton's laws of gravitation. Such an act on the part of a scientist would be akin to blasphemy, and for an artist to commit such an absurdity is, to treat it kindly, an evidence of either misguidance or crass ignorance of the enormity of his act. . ."

- excerpts from "Macrobiotic Genius of Walter Russell" by John David Mann: -
"Dr. John E. Jackson's letter to you, a copy of which he graciously sent to me, is a perfectly natural letter of resentment for which I do not blame him in the least.
"It is true that I have challenged the accurateness or completeness of the Newtonian laws of gravitation, and will just as vigorously attack the other "sacred laws" of Kepler, and any others, ancient or modern, that need rewriting. . .
"I am sorry an artist had to do it, but Sir Oliver Lodge said that no scientist could make the supreme discovery of the one thing for which science is looking and hoping. He said that such a discovery would have to be the 'supreme inspiration of some poet, painter, philosopher or saint'. . .
"Newton, for example, would have solved the other half of the gravitation problem if he had found out how that apple and the tree upon which it grew got up in the air before the apple fell. I challenge the world of science to correctly and completely answer that question. . ."
-Dr. Walter Russell, The New York Times, August 17, 1930.

Dr. John E. Jackson
"I now wish to modify my statements and criticisms, for, since writing that letter, my viewpoint has somewhat changed. . . What I considered to be the overnight inspiration of a 'crank' might be, instead, the result of an intelligent and prolonged study of Nature.
"I am immensely intrigued by Russell's 'two-way' principle, for it gives this universe of motion a meaning to me that it did not have before. In fact, we know very little of the why of anything. .
"Why did not some scientist think of this instead of waiting 300 years for an artist to tell us about it? . . .I invite the collaboration and criticism of my fellow scientists at large to join me in this. . . If Russell is right, and he surely thinks he is, his claim that science needs 'a major surgical operation' is justifiable. . ."
