Additionally, particle spin, anti-matter, duality, quantum entanglement, non-simultaneity, and many other phenomena are simply explained.

Consequently, matter is not energy, but is mass in motion at lightspeed.< Less

In addition,more exercises have been added and additional typographical errors have been found and corrected.< Less
