In “Time: Towards a Consistent Theory” (Kluwer, 1994) he proposed a new physics, using a tilt in the arrow of time which allows future to act on the present. In “The Eleven Pictures of Time” (Sage, 2003) he proposed a new way to relate science and various religions through time perceptions. He has taught decolonized courses, even in math, using zeroism, a philosophy of math used to develop calculus in India, long before Newton and Leibniz.
