Either way, it is an extraordinary idea. Our best theory of gravity and Einstein’s greatest contribution to modern physics is motivated in part by the need to
equations generally covariant, this body of mathematics admitted remarkably few possibilities for the implementation of his theory. That fact is routinely used today in motivating Einstein’s theory. Hence it can come as a surprise to modern readers to learn that Einstein considered and rejected general
