About this title:
About the Author: Ted was born in Bisbee, Arizona in 1927 and moved to Los Angeles in 1934. He started doing "thought experiments" when he was fourteen years old. He started by imagining only two things existed in the universe and they were golf ball "A" and golf ball "B". He imagined that golf ball A was going "east" at a million miles per hour and golf ball B was going "west" at a million miles an hour. Or was A standing still and B was going two million miles an hour or was B standing still and A was going two million miles per hour? He then imagined that if everything became a million times larger or a million times smaller, including himself, he would never know the difference. From there he went to three golf balls and then four and so on until he concluded that he could reduce such things as time, space, distance and matter to what he thought of as kind of "mind-created". But, in a most intriguing manner, he realized that he couldn't do a thing with light. He had no idea that other people also had found light to be intriguing and tried to talk to other people about the concept but to no avail. His mother was busy with housework, his father traveled on business and his sister, who was about sixteen years old, was primarily interested in boys. After becoming so absorbed in his inner studies, he realized that he might flunk eighth grade and lose his job at the local market if he didn't stop thinking about such things. He did stop thinking about such things. Sort of. Later, when he learned that other people had also dealt with light, much in the same way he had, he developed a renewed interest and later learned that it was a part of science. He has since learned that light is a kind of "poor man's gravity" and that gravity is much more interesting than light. Ted attended Pepperdine College, later University, where he graduated in two and a half years with a B.A. Degree. Later he attended law school at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles where he completed three years of law school in two and a half years. While at USC he was on Law Review. He received his Juris Doctors Degree in 1956. He had completed seven years of academic studies in five years. While continuing to practice law in the Los Angeles area, with the firm of Minton, Minton and Farrell, and then as a sole practitioner, he concentrated his efforts on trial work. He then started a manufacturing company called Linear Corporation, which he eventually took public. When he sold his interest several years ago, the company had sales of approximately fifty million dollars a year.
