Back Page, Quantum Geometry**

George Sagi was born in 1925 in Hungary. He obtained his electronics engineering degree at the Technical University of Budapest. He received his M.Sc. degree and took post graduate philosophy at the University of Manitoba, Canada. He has studied sub-microscopic physics throughout his life. He is a life member of IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) and APEGM (Association of Professional Engineers and Geologists of Manitoba). George has written several pioneering technical papers. He is a member of the Canadian Authors Association and the Manitoba Writers Guild.

**Quantum Geometry,**
in contrast to Euclidean and Cartesian geometries, is based upon an extremely
small sphere, a quantum, as its basic element. Several interesting findings
are presented by the seventeen elementary rules obtained by assembling
quanta in various configurations. One striking result of **q-geometry **
is the definition of straightness without a hidden platform. Only straight
**q-lines** exist** **within packed **q-surfaces** and these lines
are at 60^{o }120^{o} angles with one another.

The philosophical parts of
Sagi’s book question the general validity of the Laws of Logic and the
self-referential nature of Euclidean and Cartesian geometry. Q-geometry is
developed relying on intuitionist logic, advocated by George Polya and Imre
Lakatos. Another heuristic method is presented by Stephen Wolfram in his
book, *A New Kind of Science.*

It is interesting to observe that molecules and atoms in single layer membranes and specific crystal surfaces have arrangements similar to quanta in packed, nested, quantum planes.

In the last chapter Sagi doubts the physical reality of string theories based on unreal one and two-dimensional models. He presents a model of massless, extremely small, spherical primordial particles that fill the void of space. The probabilities of their interactions and various configurations could explain the four forces of nature acting through a distance.
