A bunch of 30 very short science fiction sketches of alternate universes, framed as dreams that the young Albert Einstein had while thinking about relativity. It reads like notes for a Ray Bradbury collection, but with a focus on metaphysical manipulations of time and space. For example, in one universe, time flows slower the farther you are from the Earth’s center, so people build towers to try and stay young.
