This concludes the central part of the book, in which Wuthrich clearly demonstrates that diagrams were not primarily a calculational aid for Feynman, but rather provided him with an important heuristic tool in his reformulation of quantum electrodynamics and that for the most part his diagrams represented physical processes in space and time, rather than mathematical expressions.
Either the previously accepted measures upon which hundreds of calculations have been based are wrong, or there is a problem with the theory of quantum electrodynamics itself.

informs us that in 1905, while he was constructing his "new theory of time" -- meaning, though the book never mentions it, the Special Theory of Relativity contained in his paper "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies" -- Einstein was plagued by a series of nightly dreams, each of which took place in a world governed by different standards of time: "His dreams have taken hold of his research.
