Selena must have come home, for she was at breakfast, very still and without any morning small talk. She said she didn't want to walk, and that it was not a nice day, hut she hoped we'd have a good time. There was nothing really worth <elling about the walk. We climbed pretty far up one shoulder of the peak and sat down to cat our sandwiches in the lee of a rock pinnacle. After we finished, I filled my pipe and Jerry put a ciKarel in his mouth. "Bark," said Jerry, keeping his eyes on the view, ''would you be willing to tell me now what it is you know?" "I can't," I told him honestly. "It wouldn't do you any good and it wouldn't prove a thing." He leaned back against the rock. "I've come to the conclusion that if I could find out who killed LeNormand and why, I'd know about this thing that's between Selena and me. I've been thinking over the whole business for a long time now. And I'm reasonably sure I've figured out what the only clue is." "Pretty long - range work, wasn't it?" "No," he said calmly. "It wasn't long-range work at all. • I had the clue with me. Those equations that were on LeNor- .' n-.and's table. He was working • at them when he died, I'm sure of that." "Even if he wa.s" I told him impaiienlly, "a few pencil scratches on a piece of paper arc seldom fatal." "That depends. They are if they're an order to a firing ' tquad. Listen, Bark, you don't , know what * big thing LeNor- mand was on to. Th« biggest '• *i"| la •>• worldJ" ill wu NOT M. iimi tit. DbtrOTii fry MIA silent for a second. "Do you remember any of your college math?" "Not much." "Well, I'll try to explain it to you in words, then. Only it's hard to put into words. LeNor- mand's work followed the stufl of a guy named Minkowski. Ever hear of him?" "Minkowski! Why do mathematicians have such cockeyed names?" "NUTS," said Jerry. "There have been jokes about your own name, and mine. Minkowski worked on the problem of time, among other things. Lots of people talk about time as if it were a fourth dimension. In a way it is; everything tangible has length and breadth and thickness and also it exists in time. It lasts. It has duration. If it didn't, you wouldn't be able to grasp its existence any more than you could figure out something that lacked one of the other three dimensions." "All right," I said. "I agree to all that." "But," he went on, earnestly, "in another way time Isn't like the other dimensions. You can't see the time dimension of anything. You can even forgot about it the way Euclid did, and Ho lot of things to geometrical figures, at least on paper, without taking it into account at all. Minkowski discovered that time is not any ordinary spatial quality of anything, but his idea was that it would become so.jf it was multiplied by the square root of minus one." "My old friend," I remarked, "the square root of minus one! I haven't thought of it in years." "Well, LeNormand figured out a set of equations that proved th« s*ri»l nature oi time." "Hunh?" "Su/i. Th»f« Isn't jutt time. There are lots of times. Everybody believes that, if you stop to think about it. You've heard people say, 'lime passes slowly,' or 'the time went by like lightning. 1 Well, it's sort of like the old song about who takes care of the caretaker's daughter? It you talk about time passing, you're actually measuring it against something, and that something is a sort of second time." I SAT and waited for the rest of it to roll over me. "The nearest way I can give you an idea of LeNormand's work is to say that he applied this theorem of Minkowski's to the conception of a serial time, or a bunch of times running on up into infinity, I know you don't get it, and it's not a thing you can explain even with diagrams, but I guess you can see that everyone, from Einstein to little old Bill Feldman in the Math Department, was on his neck for it;' "I don't see how they even understood it." "They didn't. Well, that's about all I can tell you about LeNormand's theories, because it's all I'm sure I understand. There's one last equation. I'm working on it now. If I can decipher what he was putting down in that . . ." Jerry's voice trailed off for a moment. "Anyhow, you see why I think LeNormand had hold of something big. He used to tell me some things you could do with his stuff, just for fun. He said once that if you could control your mind after you were dead and outside your body, you onuld make it travel through time. He used to tell me that it would do a lot of Christians good to go back and take a look at the CruciAxion before settling down to an eternity of bliss." We sat there for several moments without any more words. Perhaps Jerry was thinking. For my part, I knew that I could never understand what he had been talking about, so there was no use my trying *ny thought. 1 jiat s*t <T« ftt Continued) ftCAi.
